A tale of Legends reborn, royal intrigue, and an unforgettable, heart-melting romance that will sweep you away.
Annalisia is a seer, a princess with a courageous spirit—and a soft spot for Legends.
Jovanni is a Legend, a commoner with no patience for pampered royals.
Principessa Annalisia is stunned and conscience-stricken when an unknown enemy mistakenly abducts her maidservant. Determined to find the girl, Annalisia disguises herself as plain Anna and slips away from the palace. She tracks down Jovanni, her maidservant’s daring older brother, and they soon begin to search together. As they uncover clues, Anna also discovers a kindred spirit in Jovanni. But would he be so free with her if he knew who she really was? Doubtful. Even so, she reveals her secret gift of visions to him, and in so doing disobeys the orders of her beloved grandmother, the queen.
With Jovanni, Anna can almost imagine she’s like any other seventeen year old girl, free to pursue the longings of her heart. When she learns that he also has a secret—he’s a sentinel, an ancient shapeshifter who can take the form of a falcon—it seems as if they were destined to be together, as in the legends of il Sentiro. Though Anna is tempted to wish otherwise, she can’t forget that she’s a princess and it’s her duty to marry another. Meanwhile, their hunt leads Anna ever closer to danger, for she herself is being hunted.
A princess and a commoner.
They never should have fallen in love…but they did.

Aire is about Annalisia, a Princess who has a special gift. When someone kidnaps Annalisia’s servant, she disguises herself as “Anna”, she leaves the palace, determined to find her servant and along the way she finds romance!
I absolutely LOVED this book, I couldn’t put it down! It was well written, the characters were well thought out, the Italian setting is beautiful, the pacing is perfect, and the use of Italian words throughout the novel was a nice addition, making in more real. Annalisia is a heroine, she’s courageous and determined.
Aire is an entertaining, romantic, thrilling and magical fantasy! I recommend it and I can’t wait to read more from this author!!
