Faraway Castle is the most illustrious resort in all the civilized world, favored by royalty and nobles as a summer getaway. Problem is . . . it also attracts all sorts of magical creatures, some friendlier than others. That's where Ellie Calmer comes in. She uses her particular brand of magic to deal with magical beings of all kinds, from obstinate hobgoblins to cute but flammable cinder sprites. Her role at Faraway Castle is important, but . . .
But Ellie is definitely a servant. A member of the lower class, who needs to remember her place. And she knows she has no business thinking about handsome Prince Omar, a regular visitor at the resort, much less talking to him!
The situation grows more complicated when a unicorn on the resort grounds attacks a party of riders and frightens the guests. A band of young and adventurous nobles decide to hunt it down, but Ellie knows something must be wrong to have driven the unicorn to such desperate extremes. With the help of Prince Omar, can she manage to find the unicorn before it's too late? And will she somehow protect her heart against the irresistible attraction she feels for the kind and gentle prince?
