All That Glitters (Alchemy's Heirs #1) - Elizabeth McCoy

I'm really curious about how the romance in this is going to work, because there are so many things that could foul it up. First, there's the issue of Iontho being the Lord Alchemist's heir, and therefore not the sort who can marry just anyone. Second, there are enormous consent issues, or at least there are in the situation as both characters understand it. Jani thinks Iontho is under the influence of a potion that forces him to be loyal to her, and Iontho thinks Jani might be a little under the influence of that potion herself.

 

So far, though, I'm enjoying this and am glad that I continued reading this series despite giving the first book set in this world only 2 stars.
