An MM Fantasy Romance.
Prince Taegan Glynzeiros has prepared since childhood to fight and lead armies against invading orc forces, the enemies of elves since time immemorial. But the terms of a successful peace treaty means the elven prince will not be fighting the orcs, but marrying one.
Zorvut the Relentless is the third son of Hrul Bonebreaker, leader of the loose coalition of orc clans that have accepted the unprecedented elven peace treaty. Though his name has come from his unyielding spirit on the battlefield, when he is offered to the elves to be married off to their prince, he knows better than to try and fight against his father’s wishes.
The first words they speak to each other are their wedding vows. Despite being considered the runt amongst the orc warlord’s children, Taegan finds him to be surprisingly intelligent and thoughtful—everything the stereotypes about orcs say he shouldn’t be. He doesn’t want to fall in love, but Zorvut’s gentle soul makes it difficult to resist. Worse, their marriage bond, forged by ancient elven magic between their minds, proves to be a far deeper and stronger connection than anyone would have anticipated. In spite of their trepidation, a true relationship begins to blossom from the political union.
But such a long war is not easily forgotten, and there are many who want to see them apart, both elf and orc. When a dark secret comes to light that threatens to nullify the very peace treaty that brought them together, Taegan must decide if his feelings for Zorvut are worth fighting for.
This steamy MM fantasy romance, the first in the Orc Prince trilogy, is a play on enemies-to-lovers with an arranged marriage twist, and contains light omegaverse/A/B/O elements (mpreg is discussed as an in-world possibility, but does not happen on the page) and some delicious size differences. This 18+ novel contains explicit scenes; if that’s not your thing, Lionel Hart probably isn’t the author for you.
