A human princess. A dark-elf prince. A kiss of fire and powder.

After a failed courtship in an ally kingdom, twenty-one-year-old Princess Alessandra returns home to a land torn apart by mutual hatred between the humans and the dark-elves. The “Beast Princess,” as Aless is known by courtiers, confidently sets her mind to ways of making peace, but her father has already decided for her: she is to marry one of the mysterious and monstrous dark-elves to forge a treaty, and go on a Royal Progress across the kingdom to flaunt their harmonious union. While she intends to preserve the peace, the Beast Princess has plans of her own.

Prince Veron has been raised knowing his life is not his own, but to be bargained away by his mother, the queen of Nozva Rozkveta, to strengthen the dark-elf queendom. When his mother tells him he is to marry a self-absorbed, vile human, he is determined to do his duty regardless of his personal feelings. After arriving at the human capital, he finds the “Beast Princess” rebellious and untamed—and not to be trusted.

Aless and Veron face opposition at every turn, with humans and dark-elves alike opposing the union violently, as well as their own feelings of dissonance toward each other. Can two people from cultures that despise one another fall in love? Can a marriage between them bond two opposing worlds together, or will it tear them apart for good?

If you like the fantasy and politics of Danielle L. Jensen’s Malediction Trilogy and the romance of Elizabeth Vaughan’s Chronicles of the Warlands, No Man Can Tame will lure you into its world and not let you go.

Buy No Man Can Tame today, and journey into a medieval world of magic and Immortals, masquerades and games, love and blood, and a tale as old as time…

No Man Can Tame had a lot going on at once. There was romance, betrayal, political alliances, and so much more happening all throughout the novel. All of what was happening was written so nicely too. There wasn’t ever too much of one thing going on at one time. The way the plot was balanced was seriously well done. I was entertained throughout the story.

Before even reading No Man Can Tame, I was interested. However, once I started reading though, I had doubted whether or not I would actually enjoy the story. The first few chapters were rough for me. The first few chapters showed how sheltered Aless was. 

Albeit the lingo that was used in Aless’ family was a little difficult for me to wrap my head around. Once I figured out that Aless’ family were using Italian wordage, it was easier for me to read.

The world that No Man Can Tame takes place in is simply beautiful. The way that Honfleur wrote descriptions of what the characters’ surroundings looked like…the imagery that was created in my mind via the words I read. I am fangirling over it. It was  Outstanding. Beautiful. Lush. Magical.

There are two points of view within No Man Can Tame. First we read from Aless, and then we read from Veron. After Veron is introduced, the characters view points alternate with almost every chapter.

Aless is a princess who is stronger than she looks, and more mature than she gives herself credit for.

Veron is strong-willed, guarded, and more caring than he lets on.

However, both Aless and Veron are 100% there for each other. Together they are more kind and caring than I’ve seen in a bookish-couple in a while. I love them separately, and I love them together.

I actually quite liked this book! After I started reading No Man Can Tame, I didn’t think that I liked it. I’m quite happy that I held out and gave this book a chance. 

I give No Man Can Tame, 4 stars.
