Calista Thorne has always been destined for a king. And with her parent's negotiations, she is betrothed to King Magnus, an older man that she has yet to meet. But when her home, Blackbriar Keep, is attacked by The Bastard Brotherhood, she will not sit idly by and let these notorious monsters tear apart her home. Injuring their leader, Torch, with her crossbow, gives her a small amount of pleasure, even though in the end, her father was forced to hand over their stronghold to this man. Torch has dreamed of Calista through the power of his scrying stone, and he declares that he will marry her just before he collapses. Calista knows that she must nurse this mercenary back to health if she is to keep her parents and her people safe. But the more time she spends with Torch, she learns that he does not live up to his murderous reputation, and when he touches her she yearns to be his. For Torch is not only the leader of The Bastard Brotherhood, and he wants vengeance for what was stolen from him as a child. But King Magnus will never let this insult stand and with traitors within the walls, and the truth of an old feud finally brought to light, can Calista and Torch trust the magic of the stone that has brought them together? And can they really trust their feelings for each other?
DESTINED FOR A KING by Ashlyn MacNamara is an action-packed, steamy, historical romance that reeled me in straight away. Calista is a strong heroine who will follow her heart and do what she must, to protect her people. Torch has hidden his identity for so long but as his relationship with Calista develops, we can see him become more powerful as he realises she believes him. But with danger from all sides, betrayal, and new powers, they must try to find a way to fight for their freedom and for each other. DESTINED FOR A KING by Ashlyn MacNamara is a great beginning to what is sure to be an enthralling series.
BOOK RATING - 📖📖📖📖 4+
They say that once you reach your forties, you undergo some sort of mid-life crisis. That must have been what happened to Ashlyn Macnamara when she finally made up her mind to set down some of the stories that had been accumulating dust in the dark recesses of her brain for years. As space becomes available, other plots and characters have developed the pesky habit of moving in to take their place.
Ashlyn lives in the wilds of suburbia outside Montreal with her husband, two teenage daughters, and one loudmouth cat. When not writing, she looks for other excuses to neglect the housework, among them knitting, reading and wasting time on the internet in the guise of doing research. For more information:
