Live Like Legends
Princess Kalista has known her role from birth. She's spent her entire life preparing to be the socialite wife of a prince from a peaceful kingdom. But on her big day, she is shocked when she is instead forced to marry the warrior prince of a cursed land, who is as cold as the wintry kingdom he'll one day rule.
Carson has a throne no princess wants to share with him. An immortal beast ravages their land, and he’ll do anything to stop it, even marry a complete stranger on the day she was supposed to wed her betrothed. Let her hate him for it, but Kalista is his only hope for peace.
Kalista knows she’s just a pawn on the chessboard of politics, but now she’s expected to kill an unstoppable creature because of some legend about her bloodline that Carson believes as truth. He trains her how to fight, and when lessons in swordplay lead to lessons in love, her destiny puts more than just her life at risk.
How far is she willing to go to save the prince she never wanted…but can’t imagine living without?
I was sold on the blurb. This book was totally up my street. A princess, a prophecy and a legend.
Kalista has been training to be the perfect betrothed since she was a child. She learnt a new culture and language. After an ancient prophecy is set in stone everything she hasn’t learnt becomes useless. Her arrange marriage is to a Prince from another land but not the one she expected. Now she must learn the legend and navigate a new path.
Kalista thinks monsters are just stories but she was wrong.
This is a romance novel with a touch of magic and horror.
I really enjoyed this book although felt it was slow in parts. The relationship between the princess and her prince was sweet and I liked the language barrier. It has a happy ever after and a kickass heroine.
