Blurb: One dark curse, two elves and a destiny neither could escape.
Disregarded by her betrothed, elven princess Clairessa Bellehaven analyzes spell books and dreams of finding someone to share her life. Betrayed by her unfaithful witch boyfriend, she convinces herself a single night with another elf will do no harm. Except the Goddess has a plan and Clairessa will have to fight to save the man who seized her heart and refused to let her go.
Clan prince Rowe Calder arrived in Wildeloch to settle problems with his family's business. What he found was the one elf he'd spent his life avoiding. His bondmate. The woman destined to bring about his death. Now he must find a way to keep his family safe when the dark elf comes to claim his soul.
Will a love long denied be strong enough to save them when darkness seeks retribution?
Review: Clairessa's arranged mating is 6 years past due. Claire believes in the bonding of the mating, though it appears her mate doesn't because he refuses to meet with her. After a cheating boyfriend, who she never loved, showed his true colors, Claire found herself in a club where she meets Rowe. Finally thinking of herself only, she thinks she can have one night with an elf like herself to make her forget all her worries.
Rowe has done his best to avoid relationships and that includes his arranged mating. Rowe was cursed as an infant, when he finds true love he will die. But what would another quick one night stand with a beautiful woman hurt? Nothing,... until she was gone before the sun came up. Rowe would have usually been fine with that until Claire. Now he needs to find her.
I really like this story, Rowe and Claire fall for each other without sex or a relationship being involved. Claire pulling away and Rowe trying to get closer. Smooth, quick & interesting read.
