This was an excellent satisfying romance. Gavin is such a strong and honorable hero who falls for pretty Mirielle, almost the moment he sees her in her true form. Mirielle has the gift of magic and turns into a powerful ally for Gavin in his quest to discover the evil that lurks in his castle, and his cruel wife, whom he detests. through all kinds of obstacles, their love grows despite everything, and they remain quite devoted, even after Mirielle discovers that Gavin had initially deceived her as to his identity. Their reunion was heartfelt and you know even without reading the sequel to this book, called "The magician's Lover", that follows Gavin's son, Warrick, that Mirielle and Gavin will end up happily ever after. I highly recommend this book.
