Do you know how timely this book was for me? I read this twice when the blog went OFF! and it literally was a saving grace. This is a story that took me away from the realities of life and allowed me to just wallow in a romantic, fantastical world of elves, fairies, gnomes, and all other magical creatures you can think of or not. You see, this is set in a magical world of a grotto. A grotto protected by Ansleigh, a leader. A prince of his kind, and the main man in this romantic story.
This book opens to Dylan Matthews finding out he is the sole beneficiary to his grandfather's most valued possession: Ansleigh's Grotto. A magical place he loved as a child then as a young man, but he had left in tears and revulsion when he was just a teen. When he left fifteen years before, that was the last of his memories of the beloved home.
Ansleigh had waited for so long for his Cosantoir to finally be beside him. When he came, he was a young little boy whom he befriended and protected. When the young man came back, Ansleigh did his all to claim him and be claimed in return. The harsh realities of real life intruded into their love affair and Dylan fled the Grotto. Now he is back. After fifteen years, Dylan is finally within reach. Can Ansleigh hold on to logic and become the friend then lover to his true Cosantoir or should he just throw caution to the wind and claim the man and risk rejection?
Talk about true love. Romance that can only be found in fairy tales. Romance which imagery is so unique, it can take the reader far, far away from the harsh realities of life. This is a love story and it is passionate. It can withstand betrayal. It is a love that can withstand the test of time and become a forever kind of love.
JT! I have rated your previous works lower but this is such an exceptional read! This is a timeless story and it is unforgettable.
