His show may be smoke and mirrors, but there’s no fooling the heart.
All her life, Princess Talista has hungered for every scrap of knowledge she can find about humanspace. But the Elder Court has decreed humanspace off-limits to subjects of the Fey Realm—except for two weeks of no-magic-allowed survival training.
Now it’s Tali’s turn to train, and she has no intention of wasting her time in a remote forest. Las Vegas is where the action is, and she intends to show the Elders that Sin City is a far better training ground—even if she has to go AWOL to prove it.
Jake Story’s adopted family is the definition of chaos, and choosing to be a magician in Vegas doesn’t exactly court normal. When he brings a luscious redhead onstage to hypnotize her, though, the passionate kiss they share amid a strange circle of lights definitely isn’t part of the act.
Their electric attraction is more than a simple case of boy meets fairy. It’s a link into a past Jake never knew about. A past with the power to create a rift between Fey Realm and humanspace, forcing them to make a terrible choice. A short human lifetime without magic…or an endless Fey lifetime without love.
Tropes: This royal fish out of water romance novel also includes a virgin heroine, forbidden love, and opposites attract.
