The River Prince (Realms of Love #2) by S.J. Himes, Sheena Jolie – Free eBooks Download
From bestselling author SJ Himes writing as Sheena Jolie comes the long-awaited new book in the Realms of Love Series!
The countries of Eistrea and Hellebore were once one land, torn asunder by a brutal war. A thousand years later, the Hellebore Empire and the Kingdom of Eistrea foster peace along the shared borders of the massive river Adracias, united by faith in a mysterious river god and an ancient treaty signed in blood and magic.
Prince Elia of Eistrea is the youngest of four and is hated by siblings and royal parent alike. Outcast for being different in more ways than one, Elia suffers through abuse and scorn without much hope for a better life. Gifted with magic that leaves him hated by his father, Elia is waiting for the day he’s tossed aside like trash and left to die, or married off to a cold-hearted stranger after political power.
The festival of Adracias approaches, and the Hellebore Empire has sent their ambassador to Eistrea, guarded by a squadron of the infamous Hellions, the best warriors in Hellebore. One of their numbers is Sir Merrick, a kind, gentle warrior who notices Elia and treats him as if he were precious. Despite knowing better, Elia falls in love with the Hellion guard. Elia dreams of a day he can call a man like Sir Merrick his love, and yearns for the impossible.
Yet Sir Merrick has a secret, one even bigger than the magic abilities Elia keeps hidden from the realm under the threat of violence. When Elia learns the truth hidden in plain sight, the potential for war on a scale never seen before erupts between the two lands. Tensions rise and swords are drawn, and then Elia is offered a chance to both achieve his heart’s most secret desire and preserve a thousand-year-old peace.
