He vowed never to love again. Then he met her.
Amani Bantish has been passed over five times for marriage. She fears she has no hope for a husband until finally, the Spider Prince accepts her as his bride. Not for love, but to bear him an heir.
Two years ago, Ziyad Bihar lost his first wife, Karis, and their unborn son under the hooves of a raider’s horse. No one else could possibly compare to the woman he’d once loved, therefore his new bride will not be his princess.
But Ziyad cannot deny that the more he gets to know Amani, the more he fantasizes about his minx of a wife. Yet his loyalty to Karis pulls him deeper into his despair. When Amani’s life is threatened by the very man responsible for Karis’s death, Ziyad realizes he must fight for the woman he loves, or risk losing it all again.
Far too often in romance the conflict comes solely from outside the relationship, while within all is smooth sailing. It is refreshing to see a story where characters must work out their own difficulties while dealing with the world at large.
This book is the fourth in a series, but unlike many series I have read, it remembers to give a nod to previous books. I as a new reader was able to discern the many friendships and animosities already present in a the world I had not yet been introduced to properly.
I really like the villain of this story. He’s just so paranoid and desperate, it really gives his character a nice psychotic edge that really makes your question the heroine’s safety.
Overall, and very enjoyable story that I highly recommend.
