It’s Monday so it’s time to shine another spotlight on a random book from my TBR, and this week, it’s book #138, The Prince of Secrets by AJ Lancaster!
Well-bred women should not be seen kissing their butlers. Even when the butler in question is secretly a fae prince.
Wyn knows falling for Hetta Valstar is a bad idea. She’s not only human but the new magically bonded ruler of Stariel Estate. If their relationship gets out, it’ll cause a scandal that could ruin their attempts to sort out the estate’s crumbling finances.
And it doesn’t help that Stariel has decided it doesn’t like him.
But more than jealous sentient estates and Hetta’s good name are at stake. Wyn’s past is coming back to bite him. Ten years ago, he broke an oath and shattered the power of his home court, and the fae have been hunting him ever since. Now they’ve found his hiding place, they won’t rest until he’s dead or the debt is repaid–and they don’t play nicely.
The Prince of Secrets is Book 2 in the Stariel Quartet.
I own an ebook copy of this book, and it was sent to me by the author for review. I really need to get to this one soon! It’s been long enough since I read (and loved!) The Lord of Stariel, which I reviewed here, that I’d quite like to reread it before plunging back into the series, but this is a fabulous cosy gaslamp fantasy with a touch of romance that ticked basically all my boxes, so even though I’ve been slow to get to it, I’m very excited to continue the story. I loved Wyn, so I’m looking forward to more of him in this book!
Have you read this one (or the first book)? I’d love to know if you enjoyed it!
