Publisher's Summary

Prince Allen has trained his entire life to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious mother, who has made their kingdom one of the wealthiest and most influential in the empire. For the past few years he has trained to become the new consort of the High King. The only thing no one prepared him for was the stubborn, arrogant High King himself, who declares Allen useless and throws him out of court.
High King Sarrica is ruling an empire at war, and that war will grow exponentially worse if his carefully laid plans do not come to fruition. He's overwhelmed and needs help, as much as he hates to admit it, but it must be someone like his late consort: a soldier, someone who understands war, who is not unfamiliar with or afraid of the harsher elements of rule. What he doesn't need is the delicate, pretty little politician foisted on him right as everything goes wrong.

Wonderful audio

I loved the print version of this so I already knew the story. However, the audio really brings nuances of the difference characters to life that I hadn't really picked up on in the book before, such as Lesto's softer side and Sarrica's frustration. I am looking forward to rereading the book again to see if it feels any different - although it will still be a 5-star read for me.

Can't wait for the next one!

I loved this book so much that I spaced out listening to it just so it would last longer. If you love queer romance, excellent characterisation, pride-and-prejudice style romances, court intrigue, and protagonists with unusual skills, you're in the right place.

I appreciated, too, that it didn't whizz through the plot too fast; portions of the novel took the time to linger with characters I loved and shed a bit more light on the setting that I'd become interested in, but only once I cared about those things. There wasn't a single thing I didn't love about this book, and the narration is smooth and thoughtful.
