Second in the Jewels of Kinfarilie series. Wonderful story, even better than the first. Vivienne wants a fairy spouse. What she gets is a man who needs an heir to take back what is rightfully his. A lot of fun and love along the journey!

Like a heroine in an ancient tale, Vivienne waited in his highest chamber of Kinfairie's tower for her fated lover. In the darkness he came for her, cloaked and hooded so that she would not see his face. He loved her sweetly, thoroughly...Vivienne knew she had met her destiny.
But in the morning light, her dream is shattered. Erik Sinclair of Blackleith is no romantic hero but a disinherited warrior who arranged her abduction to regain his own legacy. Outraged by Erik's insistence that he needs her solely to beget a son, yet ensnared by the passion he awakens, Vivienne realizes that there is more merit in her tactiturn spouse that he would admit. Erik is skeptical of her growing faith in his honor and her desire to recapture his stolen birthright...Little does he suspect that his rare gem of a bride intends to capture his barricated heart as well.

This leaden second entry in Delacroix's medieval-era Jewels of Kinfairlie trilogy finds Alexander Lammergeier marrying off yet another sister for financial reasons-and, as in the first book, The Beauty Bride, he feels the need to trick the bride into participating. Playing upon his sister Vivienne's love of fairy stories, Alexander spins a tale-a mortal woman once fell asleep in the castle's highest tower and was seduced by a fairy prince-that compels her to climb the tower and await her own fairy prince. Unfortunately, the lover she meets, a mysterious man willing to pay her brother a hefty sum for her hand, is thoroughly mortal, and their passionate encounter leaves her compromised, sadly disillusioned and handfasted to the gruff Erik of Blackleith, who needs a noble bride and an heir to re-establish his claim to his family's estate. As the pair head for Blackleith, Vivienne strives to thaw her husband's icy heart, but Erik is so charmless that it's hard to root for her success. Vivienne, in turn, comes off as weak-willed, essentially accepting her role as broodmare until she can breach Erik's defenses.
