Ferrand Faucon is lucky. As a demi-fae prince, he knows his father's fae life-span gives him plenty of time to enjoy life before he takes over as king. Content to spend his time sailing the continent on his ship, his only companions are his crew. When his father sends him to spy on the new King of Selmy Island, he finds himself drawn to the eldest princess. After seeing his father's broken heart when his human mother died, he has sworn to never fall for a short-lived human woman.

Will the burning desire blossoming between them be enough to make their union successful, even after they learn about magical outside forces at play that neither of them could have expected?
Princess Marya Sova
Marya is the oldest of the Sova siblings. She is your typical oldest child- bossy, controlling, and a little bit type A. She loves her brother and sisters, and would do anything for them. She will do anything to save her kingdom as well. She hoped that meant assisting her brother Ivan in ruling, but it seems the only thing a woman is good for is marriage. She does not want to get married. But if that's what it takes to save her kingdom, she will do what needs to be done. Marya is Gifted by the Falcon-God Otreus with the Gift of extraordinary speed, and her favorite thing to do is to run.

Ferrand has a younger half brother, and a human step-mother. And his favorite thing in the world, is sailing on his ship the, Falcon's Kiss.
