To Court a Queen by [Burke, H. L. ]

About the Book:

Title: To Court a Queen | Author: H.L. Burke | Pages: 112 | Genre: Romantic Fantasy | Recommended Ages: Young Adult and Up

Book Description:

He doesn't want to get married, but he wants to be a frog even less.

Knight errant, Devin, takes a shortcut through the woods, only to be captured by fairy forces. The fairy queen has run out of breathing males to fight for her hand, and Devin, while not ideal fairy stock, is breathing--for now.

Telling a vain fairy queen you'd rather not be her one true love is a ticket to life on a lilypad, so the knight agrees to face three challenges to win Queen Agalea's hand. When a clever servant girl offers to help him navigate the trials in order to stop the constant bloodshed of the courtship ritual, Devin jumps at the chance. However, as he balances "flirting" with his "beloved" and overcoming tasks specifically designed to kill him, he finds his heart drawn to his new partner in survival.

My Review:

To Court a Queen by H.L. Burke is a romantic fantasy about an imperfect knight who stumbles into a deadly game that he can't refuse. He's given the choice to be turned into a frog and get eaten by a predator or face three deadly trials to win the fairy queen's hand. He doesn't even like the queen, but his survival instincts kick in and he chooses the trials. Only one male has made it past round one. With an elf slave's help, he might just survive the first and second, but no one knows what the third will be.

H.L. Burke has created an adventure packed story with witty banter and a bit of romance. This is a quick read and appropriate for young adults and up. I was one of the beta readers and this is my honest and voluntary review.

About the Author:
H.L. Burke

Born in a small town in north central Oregon, H. L. Burke spent most of her childhood around trees and farm animals and always accompanied by a book. Growing up with epic heroes from Middle Earth and Narnia keeping her company, she also became an incurable romantic.

An addictive personality, she jumped from one fandom to another, being at times completely obsessed with various books, movies, or television series (Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Star Trek all took their turns), but she has grown to be what she considers a well-rounded connoisseur of geek culture.

Married to her high school crush who is now a US Marine, she has moved multiple times in her adult life but believes home is wherever her husband, two daughters, and pets are.
