Product description

"Steamy, sensual, and dangerous."--Fresh Fiction on The Goblin King She Wasn't Cut Out for His World... The realm of the fairies might be unbelievably beautiful, but its people are notoriously treacherous. Raised among mortals, Taryn hoped to avoid her fairy heritage her whole life. But now she must cross over to Annwyn and appeal to the King to pardon her exiled parents, or they're sure to die. And to get to the King, she'll first have to face the Lord of the Hunt... He Can't Imagine Life Without Her... Verden, Lord of the Hunt, is sworn to serve to King. But the moment he sees Taryn, the attraction is instant and devastating. How can he not help the beautiful, brave young woman who refuses to bend to the will of the court? Yet the power in Annwyn is shifting, its magic failing. No matter how much he may love Taryn, the Hunter knows that abandoning his duty could bring down the mortal world forever... Praise for the works of Shona Husk: "Romantic and intriguing."--Publishers Weekly "Enthralling."--Booklist "A great fairy-tale feel...dark, fresh, and tantalizing."--Anna's Book Blog

Taryn is a Fae raised in the human world. She crossed to Annwyn in hopes of negotiating a pardon for her exiled parents from the King.

Verden, Lord of the Hunt, is instantly attracted to Taryn. His loyalty is sworn to the King, but he finds himself conflicted, wanting to help Taryn.

Taryn is a great character. Her personality and values are so different from those of the Fae court that it makes a fascinating story. She loves her parents and is willing to do anything for them. She finds herself attracted to Verden but knows she cannot show interest in him, or she risks losing the Kingâ??s favor.

Verden worked his way through the court to become the Kingâ??s right-hand man/Fae. As the court Enforcer, he has existed his life showing no emotion. Any sign of weakness is a risk at court.
I like that Verden found his time alone with Taryn refreshing. He could let his guard down around her and be himself.

I appreciate that Verden helps Taryn with court politics. In return, Taryn makes Verden reevaluate his priorities and what is important in life.

Shona Husk does an exceptional job describing Annwyn. She created a beautiful world that captured my imagination.

The plot was exceptional. The story was creative with mystery and suspense. Lord of the Hunt is truly magical. I look forward to reading Prince Felan story To Love a King (Court of Annwyn #3).
