About the Book

A strong-willed crown princess.

Ilara of Talland hoped a foreign visitor could increase trade for her starving people. Instead, he turned out to be a powerful sorcerer.

Now Ilara and her two sisters are cursed.

Every night the princesses are stolen away to a magical ball they can’t remember. The sorcerer claims he will free them if Ilara marries him, and he warns his efforts to win her without bloodshed will last only as long as his evaporating patience…

A lonely ambassador.

In Rethalyon, former prince Tristan Carbrey is still reeling from the rightful king’s return. Distrusted, unwanted, and haunted by his sins, he’s forced to undertake an ambassadorial mission to prove his loyalty.

Unfortunately, the king of Talland is more interested in his experience with curses than trade. But helping the princesses might be Tristan’s chance at redemption and at the companionship he longs for…

If he isn’t killed first.

Can Tristan dare to love the kind princess despite believing he’s a villain unworthy of her affection? And can Ilara afford to love a man who doesn’t trust himself?

If you love a tortured, used-to-be-a-villain-but-is-now-a-hero redemption arc, then you’ll love A Lonely Dance. Tristan makes for a compelling character as he struggles to forgive himself and learn to be a better man, all while facing the suspicion and lack of respect of those around him. He makes a great leading man for Ilara as she fights to save her family and kingdom from the grasp of a conniving sorcerer set on forcing her into marriage to enslave her kingdom. This book put me into such a post-good-book haze after I stayed up way too late and ditched my responsibilities in favor of reading it. I loved the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and sacrifice in this excellent spin on the Twelve Dancing Princesses fairy tale!
