    1. Arranged marriages, dragons, mages, dwarves and elves oh my!Well at least that was my initial mood going into this.

    2. The draw of the story for me was what next will bring Arden and Darius closer, as they near their betrothal date or on their trip. What will we learn of the attractive Darius's past?
