Caspian Mort has just received the job of a lifetime;
catalogue and value the antiques at the infamous Calloway
House, or as some refer to it The Mistress Hotel. There are
only a few minor problems that stand in his way. He's a
fairy changeling with the unique gift of psychometry. Any
time he touches an object, he is overwhelmed by it's past.
In Calloway House, Caspian is in danger of drowning in the
history of the place. A more delectable problem is Lydia
Calloway, the granddaughter of the infamous Calloway's.
Lydia is sexy, smart, and more temptation than Caspian can
resist. Despite his growing attraction, Caspian can't risk
revealing his true identity to Lydia because knowing
exactly who he is can be dangerous.
The Fairy Court of
Annwyn is in upheaval as the King and Queen vie for power.
Their troubles ripple through the human world. Despite
never having set foot inside the world of Fairy, Caspian is
still bound by its rules and laws. He is in a unique
position to help calm those ripples. All he has to do is
find a magical portal known as the Mirror which has been
lost for five hundred years and return it to Annwyn before
he loses his soul and the woman hes come to love.
THE OUTCAST PRINCE by Shona Husk is a charming romance with
the perfect amount of sexual tension to give this story a
bit of spice. The layering of history throughout the
Calloway House and Caspian's unique gift is a refreshing
way to tighten the sexual tension between Caspian and
Lydia. Husk deftly handles the memories of the house and
Caspian's reaction to them and to Lydia.
This is a fun story with a unique world and compelling
characters. I breezed through this book, taking less than
three hours to read the 288 pages. It was engaging, but I
can't wait to see how Ms. Husk's talent develops as she
gains more confidence in her writing. I'll be watching for
more stories about this world and encourage you to read THE
OUTCAST PRINCE by Shona Husk.
