Cinderella meets The Cruel Prince in this stand-alone fantasy romance about a human girl and her marriage to the prince of the fae.

She knew her hand in marriage would be sold. She had no idea a fae prince was the buyer.

Katria swore she'd never fall in love. She's seen what "love" means through the cruelty of her family. So when she's married off to the mysterious Lord Fenwood for a handsome price, all Katria wants is a better life than the one she's leaving. Feelings are off the table.

But her new husband makes not falling in love difficult.

As their attraction begins to grow, so too do the oddities within her new life: strange rules, screams in the night, and attacks by fae that Katria never thought were real. When she witnesses a ritual not meant for human eyes, Katria finds herself spirited away to the land of Midscape.

Surviving the fae wilds as a human is hard enough. Katria must survive as a human who accidently pilfered the magic of ancient kings - magic a bloodthirsty king is ready to kill her for in order to keep his stolen throne - and her new husband is the rightful heir in hiding.

The power to save the fae is in her hands. But who will save her from a love she vowed never to feel?

A Dance with the Fae Prince is a complete, *stand-alone novel*, inspired by the tales of Psyche and Eros, as well as Cinderella, with a "happily ever after" ending. It's perfect for romantic fantasy readers who enjoyed of A Court of Silver Flames and An Enchantment of Ravens. A Dance with the Fae Prince features a slow-burn romance, swoon-worthy couple, and steaminess that ranges from simmering to sizzling.

NA Review My Thoughts
Lately I have been a big fan of inter-connected standalones! (though series are still my favorite!) The Married to Magic series by Elise Kova are all standalone stories with a HEA, but they are all set in the same world. It was really cool to read another story set in a different part of this world that I was already familiar with.
Today I want to wish the happiest of release days to @Elise.Kova, for the second book in her Married to Magic series, A Dance with the Fae Prince! I loved this book! I enjoyed it even more than the first book in this series, and fans can start with either story because they are each standalones. In A Dance with the Fae Prince, we meet our main character, Katria, who lives with her step mother, half sister and step sister. Her evil step mother, sells her hand in marriage to a mysterious stranger. And the even stranger part is that Katria’s husband to be only requested an old book for her dowry. Before Katria knows it she is whisked away to an estate deep in the woods, where her new husband has the strangest rules. (no leaving her room at night, no looking at him, etc.)
I loved the magical feel of the story. Soon Katria and a gang of secondary characters find themselves on a quest in the Fae kingdom to restore the long lost Fae Prince to power, and even though I figured out one of the twists pretty early on in the story, I was completely swept away with the magic and romance of it all. I loved Lord Fenwood and Katria, and I was super invested in the story. I couldn’t put it down. This might be my favorite Elise Kova adventure yet! If you are a fan of standalone fantasy romances, then the Married to Magic series is one you should definitely check out!

    I really enjoyed the first book in the series, so Dance With the Fae Prince is on my TBR list. It sounds like another great story from Kova. Great review!
