Summary

Duke Odwolfe of Manterra is known to his friends as Wolfe, and to his enemies as Duke the Destroyer. When his prized bull goes missing, he sets out to find it. It has been stolen for a sacrifice by the druids who are conducting their pagan ritual in the forest, within the circle of standing stones. And when he finds he is too late to save his animal, he demands one of the druids come to his castle as his servant in exchange for his loss.

Rae-Nyst is an elemental of the earth, better know as a dryad. She has both fae as well as human blood in her veins. She gets her power from the earth, but fire can kill her. And when the Duke decides to take her in exchange for his bull, she finds herself not able to fight him, as her power is draining quickly by the flaming torch he keeps waving in her face.

Can a man who believes in nothing but war and destruction accept the exotic fae girl who honors all life instead of death? Or will she have to give up the ways of her nearly extinct kind in order to be with the man who has stolen her heart? Passion and fury rage in an epic adventure as two headstrong people find themselves faced with a dilemma that could either kill them or bring them closer together.

loved it

Loved every second of it. I couldn't stop listening. This is the second book of the Elemental series. The narrator was brilliant as always. I love Kevin Green's voice. He has a different voice for every character. Now on to the next one.

A Knight, A Bull & A Fairy

The second in the elemental series is steeped in magic, legend and the diversities of faith. Ray Nyst is the elemental of the earth and shows more of her Fae heritage having pointed ears, pink tinged hair and ornamental tattoos on her body. It is only fitting that her match would also be named of the earth , he is Odwolfe the Duke of Manterra,called Wolfe and duke the destroyer. Both are lonely and feel as if they do not belong because of their differences. Each character is strong but needs to learn a lesson. One of them needs to learn to be human and the other needs to accept that magic is real. I enjoyed watching the two characters grow and become more accepting of the things that were different about themselves and others.

The Duke and the Dryad

This was extremely enjoyable. He narration was excellent. He told the story with different tones for the different characters. This book is book 2 of the Elemental stories. This book looks at the earth and trees and animals. The main female character is fey and needs to sleep in the forest in order to build back up her energy and strength. She can also speak to the trees and animals when she is trouble and needs help. The main male character is lord of the Manor and is purely human and often does not understand the fey way of things. An excellent book, the story continues on from Book 1. So now i am starting book 3 which is The Sword and the Sylph. Excellent story telling Miss Rose. xxx

Fantastic!

Elizabeth Rose has outdone herself with this lovely story of a Duke and a wood sprite! Exciting to the very end! Kevin E. Green did an awesome job narrating the characters and he made this come to life.
