This delicious Romeo and Juliet retelling with a better ending is perfect for fans of Crescent City and The Cruel Prince. Two opposing courts. Fate decrees they cannot be. Will love win in the end?

Elva is many things, but a good Fae is not one of them. Circumstances molded her into the Fae she is today. Cold. Heartless. Uncaring. She spends her days hunting the worst criminals and ignoring the rest of the world. Or she did until she met a Summer Fae who she can’t get out of her head.

The day Nathaniel sees his life flash before his eyes, he’s freezing. A Summer Fae, out of place in the land of winter. She turns around, and they lock eyes. Right then, everything changes. It doesn’t matter that she’s Winter and he’s Summer. Nothing matters except her.

Every time they meet, their forbidden connection grows. Getting close to each other is a recipe for disaster. But they can’t help it. When Elva’s past catches up with her, and she disappears, their connection may be the only thing that saves her. This book is a complete, stand-alone story in a larger series. "Legends of Love" are the perfect books for fans of fantasy romance who love sweet love stories, powerful ladies, danger, political intrigue, and epic journeys. Setting classic stories in an urban setting with vampires, fae, merfolk, angels, daemons, and werewolves makes them all the more enticing. What readers are saying about A Court of Fire and Frost… ★★★★★ “If you like Fae love stories, with a dash of powerful female MC and golden retriever puppy male MC, run and read this book.”

★★★★★ “It’s not often that I read a book and want to shout about it from the rooftops.”

★★★★★ “And I finished it in a matter of hours. It's a great page-turner, and I can't wait for the rest of the stories.”


I received A Court of Fire and Frost in return for an honest review from the authors. 

Nathaniel is a summer fae who needed a change and moved away from the court living moving to a place where it's cold and he needs to use his magic to heat himself up. It's while at work he encounters Elva an assassin on the run from her mother the queen. After a chance encounter the two are immediately enchanted with each other that they are both looking forward to her visits until she suddenly stops coming. Determined to find why she's suddenly no longer coming Nathaniel sets out on a danger adventure that will change both their lives forever. 

I love Nathaniel and Elva they both stole places in my heart right from the start. I love they have this sweet connect that just continues to grow over time as they have this little visits. I'm a huge fan of dual pov's so it was nice being able to see both of their feelings. I love how sweet their romance was as it continued to blossom into a beautiful love story. The chemistry between them just works so well and just the right amount of steam. 

I devoured A Court of Fire and Frost in one afternoon it was hard to put down and I had to see how their love story was going to play out. I haven't read very many Romeo and Juliet retellings but this is by the best one I've read. I loved every moment of the story the fae concept of Winter and Summer courts just works so well as two rival families. The bad guys are just wicked and cheered our lovers on as they overcame every challenge.

This is my first book by the authors but I'm obsessed, they did a beautiful weaving a story that captures the heart as well as the imagination. I was so nervous about how the Romeo & Juliet ending would play out in the story. However, they nailed it perfectly hitting it out of the park and exceeding my expectations. My only complaint is that it's over, and I'm not ready to say goodbye to Nathaniel and Elva's world just yet. I hope we will have more retellings yet to come. Highly recommend if you love retellings.
