My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

The tale revolves around Dainy, the Duchess of Jordinia who goes missing. While the public believes that Dainy was assassinated 15 years earlier, her own uncle has set upon some people on an assignment to find her, even going to the extent of offering her hand in exchange for finding her! This brings together three men, at odds with each other, nevertheless unified in their mission to find her. The story takes a further turn, when all three of them, upon finding her, in intent upon winning her heart over.

The tale is a fabulous mix of fantasy, romance and historical fiction. Added to this are the elements of political conspiracies and the adventurous encounters of the three suitors of Dainy's. I loved the beautiful narration that brings to mind the exquisite and charming locations of the old-age world to mind right away. Although the romance sections are on the sensual side, the story is still enjoyable. The best feature of the book was the way the characters were described - brings out the remarkable uniqueness of each one!

I highly recommend this book to lovers of historical romance and fantasy fiction.
