Book Review | One True Love by Linda Kage


Custom demanded that Prince Urban get a love mark tattooed to the side of his left eye as an infant, just like the rest of his people, but to him, the stupid things have only brought on the scorn of his father, the misery of his siblings, and caused his entire kingdom to go broke from fighting so many wars over the irritating ink stains.

When Urban’s sister must travel to Donnelly, the kingdom within the sand, for her arranged marriage to align two realms, he goes with her. But he no sooner steps foot inside their castle than his mark starts itching like a son of a bitch, telling him his one true love is near.

It just figures, though, that the woman meant for him is completely forbidden. Now he must decide if he should ignore the persistent mark, telling him she's the one, in order to avoid a possible war between kingdoms, or if he should discover whether she's worth risking everything for so they can be together. Either way, his life gets sucked into chaos with threats of beheadings, dark magic lurking, castle traitors scheming, and sword fights eminent.

Who knew one little tattoo could cause so much trouble?

(ONE TRUE LOVE is the author’s first attempt at a fantasy romance. Please forgive her; she might’ve read an overabundance of Cassandra Gannon, Sarah J. Maas, and Eve Langlais books, then gone off to watch too many episodes of Supernatural, Game of Thrones, and Outlander, because this was the outcome.)

Book Review


I love the story that seemed to centered around Prince Urban’s love mark tattoo on the side of his left eye, and the “true love” that he wasn’t supposed to have. He wasn’t really a believer of it himself, because he thought it cases more trouble and misery that happiness. But when he brought his sister over to Donnelly for her to marry the prince and aligned the two realms, his mark suddenly itches, meaning, his one true love is near. 

But his true love? Is already married, and heavily pregnant with a child. He would love to do everything to have her, if not for the insistent of his sister, Allera to stay out of trouble. He should avoid her at all cost. How is it possible though? When he discovers more fascinating facts about her everyday? 

I have ideas who the traitors are, it didn’t came as a surprise, nevertheless, the circumstances on how they were able to catch and how they finally got rid of them did a number on me, especially on what they have to sacrifice for their HEA. I enjoyed reading it, including all those twists and turns in between. It’s not that heavy on the heart, I love the romance, the steam (who knows dreams can be as good as reality) and this whole new world that Linda Kage brought to life. 

I have loved Linda Kage's contemporary romance, and to read her on a different genre is a first for me. It is still a love story, but it has a dose of fantasy in it. I rarely read fantasy, and thank goodness I wasn't disappointed. Linda Kage introduces us to a whole new world filled with tragedy, betrayal, magic, and love. I must say, not bad for Linda Kage's first try on fantasy. Will Nicolette have her story?
