spends his days following the commands of the Queen Tania,
which usually meant burning someone to death. But his nights
were filled with Roman, his life partner and love. Archer
believes that his only pluses in life are his skills in
battle, being a member of the Society and his love for Roman.
Archer knows that Roman loves him but just once he would like
to see Roman shout or do something else to show the extent of
Roman is an
ancient scholarly elf and extremely civilized in his outward
appearance. Roman loves Archer beyond anything imaginable and
knows that he would not survive without him. However he
believes that Archer will eventually be harmed either
physically or mentally if he continues to follow the orders of
Queen Tania without question. Roman has tried unsuccessfully
to get Archer interested in something else.
When a past
elfin lover of Romanís shows up it is just the start of
Archerís trouble. After an act that could have killed, Archer
loses his place in Queen Taniaís army, his flame and is
expelled from the Society. Archer thinking that Roman will
also turn away leaves their home one night. However once
settled, Archer finds out that maybe what he believes to be
the truth might not have been at all. Archer, Roman and
others in their house work together to reveal who the true
villain is. But has Archer lost his lover - what he values
A Heart Aflame
is filled with the doubts of Archer who believes himself much
below his life mate, Roman. Because he canít see his own
worth, Archer believes all that happens without question.
Roman knows Archer would never have done anything to harm him
or anyone else and is determined to fight for his life mate.
Watching Archer come to believe not only in himself but also
in Romanís love was a powerful thing to see. Archer
discovers that no one is always right or perfect, not even a
queen. A Heart Aflame had me firmly in hand
very quickly and I was turning pages because I just had to
know what would happen next. I found it a pleasant change to
see the Seelie Court in a different light. I recommend this
to anyone who loves fantasy and elves. I have not read the
other books in this series, but I plan on getting them now.
