Princess Elveena has never seen a dark elf in her life.
As a princess of the light of elves, their two kinds have been separated since before her birth. When a royal messenger arrives inviting them to a ball hosted by the king of the dark elves, Elvie knows she cannot pass up on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Even after the warnings from her father, Elvie knows this will be a night she’ll never forget.
She expected to end the night with sore feet from the endless hours of dancing…not to be engaged to the king himself!
Trapped in this new kingdom, Elvie knows she must make the most of her new situation. With each passing day, she learns that King Arkain is not what she thought a dark elf would be like. Sure, he is mean and beastly compared to the males she is used to, but Elvie quickly finds that to be the reason he excites her so much.
As the threat of war looms, will this budding passion between Elvie and the king continue to blossom? Or will she lose herself and all that she loves in the process?

Hollie Jackson

Harnessing a childhood steeped in storytelling and a deep love of the written word, with over 600 titles (and growing) under my belt, I always strive to bring a wide range of characters to vibrant, compelling life, allowing for total immersion in the story. I want you to feel the real world melt away as you engage with my work, whatever the genre, whether it's on the lighter side (cozy mysteries, LitRPG, comedic paranormal romance) or the darker desires (reverse harem, steamy dystopia, sci-fi thrillers) and everything in between. Currently on the rosters of multiple major publishers like Podium, Tantor and ACX, I’ve worked with authors around the world. I’m proficient in a variety of accents, am a member of SAG/AFTRA, have won multiple independent awards, including the IAA for Horror 2019, and am constantly working to expand my repertoire across the spectrum of incredible works available. I’ve studied with some of the best in the industry, including Paul Meier and Pat Fraley, and am always studying new techniques to enhance my performance. I’m proficient in a wide range of accents and dialects, including UK, French, German, Russian, Irish, Scottish, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and Eastern/Southern US. Working from my home studio, using top-of-the-line equipment, I always provide crisp, clear audio with editing and proofing to ensure a distraction free listening experience.
