- A cheeky (magic-able) guardsman
- A wizarding (errant) prince
- A meddling (kingly) brother
plus some spelling lessons, the palace, a small cottage at the edge of the wood.
What can I say, I love this story. No extensive misunderstanding (I counted only one that really matter), witty banter and budding friendships of said guardsman and errant prince, loving siblings relationships despite the years of separation. The conflict was very minimal if nothing at all.
I wish Myron could solve the problems with his parents, that there's an answer to his ever present bounded chest. Some questions remained unanswered until the last pages though. I dunno if there'd be sequel to this story (wouldn't refuse if there's one - even only a short one!). For a king, Stirling was not a convincing one to me, he's lovely as a brother though - a bit of a meddler, but I loved his last (meddling) attempt. Rather predictable. Still lovely and sweet of him. ;-)
Lastly, you won't be privy to Tamsen and Myron's smut activities. They kept it behind the scene, waaay behind... *cackles*
In fact, you won't find anything besides kissing and petting between our young lovers.
