Description

The Chosen by Annette Gisby - Romance>Fantasy eBook

NOTE: This is a previously published work. The title, author, and/or publisher may have changed.

Prince Severin knows that marrying the princess of a neighboring land and producing an heir is the last hope to achieve peace for his war-ravaged kingdom. Yet he refuses. Angered by his defiance, the king orders Severin out into the world, hoping that seeing the suffering of their people will change his mind. What no one knows is that the prince is not stubborn, but longs only for the touch of another man. On the brink of despair, his life changes forever when his journey brings him to a slave market and he catches a glimpse of Havyn.

Born into bondage, Havyn has spent his life being sold from master to master and longing to know love. From the moment he first sees Prince Severin, he is certain his wish has come true. But Havyn is no ordinary slave. He has been born with a magic powerful enough to save, or destroy. When the prince's trusted companion recognizes his latent talents, he is offered the opportunity of a lifetime as a wizard's apprentice.

But, there's a catch. Havyn's powers will only be fully realized if he keeps his body chaste and pure, but the closer he becomes to Prince Severin, the more their growing attraction threatens his resolve. With kingdoms at war and the throne hanging in the balance, can the two men find happiness together, or will duty triumph over love?

Editorial Reviews:
From Coffee Time Romance
"The way Severin and Havyn fight their attraction even as each of them continue to crave each other was heartbreaking. This was a really good novel, one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and remember for quite some time." - Coffee Time Romance
From Bitten by Books
"Annette Gisby is one of my new favorite authors to watch out for. The Chosen was simply a fantastic mixture of passion, longing, magic and kingdom intrigue...Annette Gisby has written a fantastic book with clandestine visits, secret dreams, and a fantastic ending." - Bitten by Books
Excerpt:
“No? You turn down the best offer of marriage you’ll ever have and you say you have nothing to be sorry for?”

“I don’t want to get married!” protested Severin. “I already told you that.”

“You’re twenty-one years old, and the only heir to the Arcathian throne! What happens when I’m gone and you’re left a bachelor? There’ll be bloodshed if you don’t sire a son and soon. Do you want to bring us back to the brink of civil war? That’s what it will come down to. Leave us,” Faran commanded the falconer. The man bowed and hastily made his retreat, the birds squawked when he did so.

“Chayal told me what happened at your initiation,” said Faran in a much gentler tone. “That you were not pleased by any of the eligible women. There is no shame in it for them or for you, Severin. The prince’s first chosen is an honour and one not lightly bestowed. But why didn’t you go through with it?”

Severin blushed, and mentally made a note never to speak to Chayal again. The man was supposed to be his friend. Then he realised that being the head of the Raven Brotherhood, Chayal’s first loyalties were to his king. They were his father’s bodyguards, not his.

“Have you lain with anyone at all? Perhaps you preferred to keep it private between the two of you?”

“No, Father. No one.” Heat crept into his cheeks as he spoke.

“But don’t you see? This is even better. Anyone offering for you will have to offer a much higher dowry since you’re a virgin, which is unusual for Arcathian males. You could have your pick of princesses,” said Faran, trying to coax him.

Why couldn’t his father understand? Severin didn’t want his pick of princesses. The idea of lying with a woman didn’t interest him. He didn’t dislike women, in fact, Kelandra was one of his best friends, but the thought of being intimate like that with any of them wasn’t something he had ever wanted.
