He had loved her, too. It’s why he hadn’t killed her and taken the throne, even though he felt that he would have been a better ruler.
My guards are my lovers. Which makes them royal consorts until one of them makes me pregnant. Then that one will be king to my queen. ” “The three guards who have been charged by the king should be sent back to faerie,” Shelby said. “King Taranis was so afraid that Ambassador Stevens would see that the Unseelie Court was beautiful that he put a spell on the man.
