Her ten sisters, who are all too young to attend, sneak in and heatheer the event, a sisterly tradition. All of which prove to be stuck up, boring, or obnoxious. The Queen died while giving birth to her, living just long enough to name her.
One night, the Keeper tells the princesses a story about the High King drinking a goblet of blood and swearing an oath on it to not die until he’s killed the Captain General.
No cursing or excessive romance.
Lord Bradford first meets the princesses at the Yuletide ball, where he and Azalea meet and fall in hether. Clumsy, rumpled, and a bit awkward. As Azalea is being thrown about she sees the soul of her dead mother, leading her to realize Keeper is the High King. I found each one of their relationships heartwarming and fully entertaining.
If you bu up Entwined wanting Illusionarium II, you will be massively disappointed. I always found the story of the 12 Dancing Princesses rather dark and depressing. The man tries to capture his partner in a series of quick steps while the female tries to evade being caught in the sash.

I purchased Illusionarium by this author, so that goes to show that I do like her, I just didn’t have an earth-shattering experience with Entwined. Azalea kind of understatement lacks perspective in a lot of cases, the thing with the watch being perhaps the most extreme example.
The unnamed mother of the twelve princesses, and the beloved wife of King Harold. I don’t know how Dixon did it, but the setting just somehow lent itself to that vibe.
I will make a Mean Girls reference. Bradford, who is the love interest for the main character and should really have more than one personality trait in his case, being adorable. The characters are also a bit flat for my taste.
