Rating: 1 1/2 ♥’s Published: April 21, 2020 Genre: Fantasy Pages: 110 Description: If the path becomes lost, can you find your way home? Pierre Danville is the reluctant heir to the Danville clan of Fae. As if that’s not bad enough, Fate has chosen his future bride for him, and Pierre’s not impressed. All he wants is freedom to choose his Destiny. Petrina envies her friends who marry for love and are properly courted by their Fae men. Instead of courting, Petrina and Pierre are forced into the woods where they can be alone and work out their problems. A witch is at work in the Danville Forest. Her prize is a young Danville heir with his Destiny. If Pierre and Petrina don’t work together, it could spell the end for the Danvilles.

I was intrigued when I read the description and thought this will be a good one to try. I am sad to say though that this book just didn't do it for me. [...]

It just seemed like a weird move and was more annoying than funny or helpful to the plot. I liked the idea of the book and what it was trying to go for. However, in the realm of [...]
