"The Fae Ring" [Highland Secrets Trilogy, Book 2] by C. A. Szarek

Author's Book Description : Book Two in the time travel, fantasy romance trilogy, Highland Secrets!

She’s always been a dutiful daughter...

Janet MacLeod has spent the last ten years dedicated to her clan, acting as the Lady of the castle—at the cost of her own happiness.

She aches every time she looks at her brothers, both happy with their wives, and wants nothing more than a love of her own.

He’s a broken soldier...

Xander, a former Fae Warrior, sacrificed his wings and magic to live in the Human Realm and became a traitor to his people.

When he finds Janet forlorn on the beach, Xander gives her a ring he’s had since childhood, not realizing it’ll reveal her as his fated mate.

The ring’s magic activates the Faery Stones, and Janet is sucked into the Fae Realm. Her life is in immediate danger, for the Fae sense—and seek to destroy—any human who dares step into their world.

Xander is the only one who can retrieve her, but he too, wears a target.

Can he rescue his soul-mate and return with her to the Human Realm or will temptation of great magic and the rebirth of his wings force him to abandon their destiny?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! A compelling story about a woman who has taken the role of "lady of the house" since her mother died years ago and pretty much raised her nephew now wants a family of her own. Fate has come to her rescue in the form of her fae warrior mate, but is she willing to trust fate or does she want to hold out for love?

Xander and Janet are an intriguing pair, the more you learn about them the more you root for their relationship. Plus, I enjoyed that even though I never read book one it didn't make me feel left out in the on goings of the series, while leaving me curious as to see where Ms. Szarek will take these characters next.

The reason I rated this novel as I did was because of how Xander distances himself towards the end as it really threw off the flow of the novel for me. I understand that because of the situation they were in he could have assumed some things about himself but the way he handled it overall hurt him as a character for me.

Nevertheless, I'd still recommend it to those who like paranormal historical romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
He was drowning in her. His mind shouted that he needed to regain control, even as his body and his magic needed more.
What the hell is happening?
Xander felt something wrap around them both. His senses spiked. He ripped his mouth off hers, though she was still in his arms, plastered to his chest. Magic surrounded them. Flowed through them.
A golden rope.
He could see it. Xander didn't have to squint. There it was, glowing. Pulsing. Different colors flashed over and spun around them, but that rope didn't waver. ~ within Chapter 2
