The Prince’s Captive

 A decoy bride sent to die. The soldier prince sent to capture her. How far will he go to save her life when even she has accepted her death?

Marcella is a mediocre mage whose only value to her people is the fact she looks like the clan’s heir. When she is ordered to take her place and be captured by their enemies so the heir can fulfill a marriage alliance, Marcella obeys.

Her only hope of surviving after her capture is for them to believe she’s the heir long enough for her to escape. Unfortunately the commander who captures her is sharper than anticipated. When he figures out the truth, she is as good as dead… isn’t she?

Upon discovering he captured a decoy instead of the heir his people needed for peace, Gavril is torn between his duty and his growing affection for a girl the world has deemed worthless. But what if she isn’t?

In her, he sees a path to peace. But if he’s going to keep her alive long enough to prove it, he might just have to tie himself to her forever. With enemies on every side, and his own heart lost to her, how is he going to protect a woman who will always hate him?

For lovers of epic magic, complex characters, and intense, slow-burn, enemies-to-lovers romance with no spice, The Prince’s Captive is an upper YA fantasy romance perfect for fans of Tara Grayce, Kenley Davidson, and Sarah K. L. Wilson!

Celeste Baxendell has always read anything she could get her hands on, but once she read her first fantasy novel, she was hooked and hasn’t looked back since.

Her love of magic, adventure, and romance hasn’t waned with age, and she endeavors to write nail-biting stories with compelling, complex characters, and finding light in dark times.

She is incredibly blessed to spend her time writing from her favorite chair with her legs curled up under her as she fights the southern heat. When she isn’t writing, she’s either reading, drawing, or sewing, in that order, and most likely thinking about writing as she does.
