Publisher Description

Will an innocent prince forced into marriage choose passion?

Sheltered in the palace with his books, Jem’s life is peaceful. Even if he’s lonely and yearning for romance, the big, strong men he wants don’t crave small, timid princes.

Then he’s forced to marry a mysterious barbarian.

Jem must do his duty—even if it means being stuck with Cador, a brute who dismisses him as weak. Even if it means a fake marriage in name only for the sake of their homelands. Even if he must leave behind everything and everyone to journey to a forbidding island of ice and stone.

Even if there’s only one bed.

Alone with this wild—yet tender?—man, Jem discovers desire that burns hotter than he ever imagined. Can two strangers learn to trust, or will dangerous lies tear them apart?

Wed to the Barbarian by Keira Andrews is a gay romance fantasy featuring enemies to lovers, an age gap, forced proximity, first times, and of course a happy ending (eventually). This is the first action-adventure romance in the Barbarian Duet and must be listened to before The Barbarian’s Vow.

Great Story & Narration🎧 A Fascinating Adventure!

I devoured this book, the story grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it straight to the end. Keira Andrews is a gifted author, and I loved everything about this story, from her wonderful writing style to the characters and storylines she created to the perfectly cast narrator who brings it all to life from the pages to your ears. Andrews takes us to the Kingdom of Neuvella where the King and Queen are hosting visitors from Ergh, the land of the Barbarians, which is north of them. Jem, the son of the King and Queen, has lived a sheltered life, a life of luxury, he lives in his books and is a bit of a dreamer, so when his parent tell him they arranged a marriage for him for the good of the kingdom it shocked him that was to a Barbaria from Ergh. He may have fantasized about the smoking hot barbarians but his dream never including marrying one or moving to their land in the north. But he has no say or choice in the matter and in a whirlwind he is married off and sails off to an unknown land. Caldor, a brute of a barbarian, is on a mission, married in name only, but he vowed to protect Jem, who in his eyes is a fragile and spoiled. But it turns out that Caldor is not as much of a brute as he appears and Jem is not as incapable as he seems either. My heart went out to Jem, he left not only his family but the only life he has known and thrown into a whole new world and not a good one. But he never complained, he just went with even though he was out of his comfort zone. I loved watching these two fall for each other, I thought they were great together and for each other. But Caldor has plans and one of them did not include him falling for Jem. This is a fabulous enemies to lovers, fantasy, romance novel, it is a cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, angst, heartfelt emotions, and a steamy romance. Keira Andrews, thank you for this amazing adventure and the wild emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Kiera Andrews cast the perfect narrator to bring her characters and story to life. Michael Ferraiuolo is a wonderfully talented narrator and a versatile voice artist, his character voices are amazing, he give each their own distinct voice, one that fits their persona perfectly, and is believable in every role he plays. He sets the perfect tone for the story, captures all the characters’ emotions and projects them into his performance and has you feeling every single one. Michael Ferraiuolo is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another exceptional listen.
