He captured a fae prince. But can he capture his heart?

Lochlann Wilde walks in the shadow of his father, a legendary summoner who commanded mythical beasts in battle. But Locke isn’t legendary. He’s barely a summoner, never passing his academy’s trial of the elements.

And then he accidentally summons a fae prince with a beautiful body and a bad attitude.

Sylvan is fiery and ferocious, stronger than anything Locke has ever encountered. And hotter, too. But time is running out. Locke must tame the prince’s wild heart. If he fails his trial, he’ll lose his inheritance and ruin his family’s name.

Without Sylvan, Locke could lose his chance to become a true summoner…along with his shot at true love.

Prince of Flowers is a contemporary fantasy romance with an HFN ending. Can a snarky summoner and a fickle fae prince endure mythical creatures, meddling goddesses, the fury of the elements, and each other? Only one way to find out. If you like sorcery, spice, and everything nice, you’ve come to the right place. Start the Wild Hearts series today.

My Review: 

I have to say that I loved Lochlann (Locke).  He can’t seem to do anything right and will never be able to achieve the greatness of his father.  In fact, he should’ve graduated a while ago, but he can’t even manage to do that.  He’s ridiculed by a classmate and even his best friend can’t cheer him up.

He goes off to the forest and accidentally summons a fae prince.  He has no idea what to do with the man, and figures bringing him back to school makes as much sense as anything else.

Then he discovers he must go on a quest. That he has one task to accomplish.  The problem?  Sylvan, although hotter than sin, is also a difficult and demanding man.  Oh, and did I mention hotter than sin?

Somehow, the two men find a way to work together and although the book ends on a happily for now, I foresee a happily ever after in future books which I will definitely pick up.  The narrator, Greg Boudreaux, did a fantastic job.  No one does early adulthood angst as well and given the book is entirely in Locke’s point of view, this worked. I’m glad I picked this one up.  Can’t wait for more.

My Rating:

9/10 Pots of Gold (90% Recommended) – Compares to 4.5/5 Stars

Hi, I’m Nazri, a Filipino-Malaysian author based in California. I’m trilingual, but I really only write in English. I can also speak just enough Sindarin and Valyrian to impress absolutely no one. My urban fantasy novels focus on realistic heroes who use wits, style, and their wildly unpredictable magic to (try) and save the day. Think sass and class, while kicking ass.

My influences come from horror and fantasy: HP Lovecraft, Anne Rice, George R.R. Martin, Chuck Palahniuk, Terry Pratchett, and Neil Gaiman. Growing up I was shaped by the Blood Sword, Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf, and Grey Star game book universes. I’m also inspired by video games, specifically the Castlevania, Final Fantasy, and Persona series.

TL;DR: I’m a huge nerd. And yes, that’s my real hair. I try to donate it to the American Cancer Society as often as I can. Also, have you heard? You can get a free book at www.NazriNoor.com.
