Book Description:
Conte Camliel Aristos deTano, Ari, has long spurned the marriage forced upon him. Princess Fleur Constante, his contractual bride and the beautiful future queen, though young and inexperienced, is willing to risk everything – including her own sanity – to save her planet.
The inhabitants of the sentient planet, Verdantia, are poised on the precipice of extinction following a brutal invasion by an off-world, nomadic horde. Verdantia’s capital, Sylvan Mintoth, must have its failing energy shield restored, or the planet is doomed. The Elders know the shield can draw energy from only one thing—a very arduous and grueling coupling of two specific people pre-chosen by the planet, Herself,  and promised by prearranged marriage contract.
Verdantia draws strength from the duo, but the sentient planet whispers to Ari that a third is necessary – Ari’s aide de camp, Visconte Doral deLorion, an angelically handsome, skilled assassin who silently surrendered his heart to Ari long ago.
The trio struggles to make this surprising partnership harmonious, pushing through pride, scars of past abuse, fears of inexperience and distrust. To save Verdantia, they must overcome their individual weaknesses and realize their full potential. Only the tetriarch and their combined synergy, can harness Verdantia’s immense power to shield its citizens from invasion.

Ok, so sometimes Sci-Fi/Futuristic is not my most favorite genre. As I started this book, there were a couple of times in the very begining, I was going to put it back down- I did not-and I am glad because as it turns out....I really did like it. The why I almost put it down??? There was too much detail for me, too much background. I do understand it is a "new world" so a really good description is a good thing to help the reader place themselves in that setting. But, in this case it was way too much! Too much detail, too much background-for me anyway.
When I finally got into the actual storyline...it was great! The characters where well developed (not overly done at all) their interaction was fantastic-very realistic emotions. I felt for them, for their situations. I love when a story does this to me-makes me feel a part of what is going on.
Because this was such a great story, I can ignore the first few pages of too much detail and honestly say this was a really good book. I will read the 2nd in the series - Hers To Choose
