Xander slips a ring on Janet’s finger that seals their fate. They’re soul-mates—whether they like it or not. When Janet flees to the Realm of the Fae, will her banished winged warrior and fated husband be able to bring them to safety or will the Fae sense her human blood and capture them both?
Book Two in the time travel, fantasy romance trilogy, Highland Secrets!
She’s always been a dutiful daughter…
Janet MacLeod has spent the last ten years dedicated to her clan, acting as the Lady of the castle—at the cost of her own happiness.
She aches every time she looks at her brothers, both happy with their wives, and wants nothing more than a love of her own.
He’s a broken soldier…
Xander, a former Fae Warrior, sacrificed his wings and magic to live in the Human Realm and became a traitor to his people.
When he finds Janet forlorn on the beach, Xander gives her a ring he’s had since childhood, not realizing it’ll reveal her as his fated mate.
The ring’s magic activates the Faery Stones, and Janet is sucked into the Fae Realm. Her life is in immediate danger, for the Fae sense—and seek to destroy—any human who dares step into their world.
Xander is the only one who can retrieve her, but he too, wears a target.
Can he rescue his soul-mate and return with her to the Human Realm or will temptation of great magic and the rebirth of his wings force him to abandon their destiny?
This is the first book of Ms. Szarek's that I've read - and that was not a problem. While the second book in a series, the author was able to give enough information about previous events, so I understood the story easily. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed The Fae Ring. It's got action, adventure, a beautiful maiden in distress and a faerie soldier! What more can a girl want?!
Xander was sworn to protect his cousin, Alana, forever. His magic is almost nonexistent in the human world. One afternoon, Xander sees Janet crying and looking out over the cliffs. Janet is jealous of her siblings' relationships with their fae mates and feeling very sad that she is almost to the age where marriage would be a miracle. He feels ‘called’ to her, slips a ring he’s had on her finger, and discovers that she is his ‘fated mate’.
Once realizing that the ring, and their reactions to it, means that she and Xander are now married for all intents and purposes, Janet goes to the “Faerie Ring” - a group of stones believed to hold mystical and magical powers. The ring opens the portal to the Faerie realm and Janet is sucked through. The problem? Humans are not allowed in the realm and the sentence for interlopers is death.Once Xander realized where Janet has most likely gone, he goes through the portal to save her.
The rest - well, you’ll have to read it for yourself! This book is a fun and sexy read!
