When you’re a rocker, it’s hard to find a partner who will truly understand you. Especially if they are from a whole other plane of existence.
Aspiring rock star Annika Brisby thinks she knows where her life is going until she steps through a broken portal that leaves her stranded in a realm of fairies, vampires, and other mythical beings. Unable to return until it’s repaired, she’s rescued by wood nymphs who believe her sudden arrival is no accident. After being taken in by a prominent family of elves, Annika finds herself struggling to resist the seductive spell of their youngest son, Talvi. Equal parts arrogant and alluring, the notorious heartbreaker seems like the perfect distraction for her homesickness. Her new friends warn her that she’ll probably regret ever laying eyes on him,and what begins as a casual fling quickly burns too hot to handle. By the time Annika learns the consequences of their forbidden trysts, Talvi’s already under her skin and dangerously close to her heart. But on the journey home she discovers that there’s a mountain of secrets that he’s not telling her, and Annika can’t help wondering who’s really in danger.

Talvi, yummy Elf Talvi. He is not your average elf. I could only describe him as the tall, dark, and handsome guy with a British accent that could melt a piece of chocolate just by speaking. I could not resist him the moment he stepped onto the scene.
I’m not a full-blown Fantasy fan, but this series has so far captured my attention and hasn’t let me go. Annika is a fiery, lovable character bursting from the seams with personality. Also, I adore her new wood nymph friends, especially Runa! I could not help but want to run and dance with her. I told you, this story changes everything you think about Fantasy books.
All Anika wanted to do was escape her life in the States and relax in Europe in her Uncle’s bachelor pad. Instead, she is whisked into another plane of existence and learns she is part samdovi which is a variety of wood nymph, if I remember correctly. Things are not as they seem and everything she knows is soon twisted and changed.
I’m already aching for the next chapter of this series!
