Impossible Things by Kate Johnson
  

Lovereading view...

A fantasy world sans dragons where a warlord rescues a slave girl and discovers she has interesting powers more numerous than his! Since this is a romance the ending is pretty predictable but getting there is the most enormous fun especially with a nicely wicked queen needing conquering.

Choc Lit, the publisher of this novel, was the 2012 Publisher of the Year as voted for by the Festival of Romance.

Synopsis

Impossible Things by Kate Johnson

Are they Cursed as well as Chosen? Ishtaer is a mystery. A blind slave, beaten and broken by her sadistic mistress, with no memory of a time before her enslavement. Kael Vapensigsson is one of the elite Chosen - a Warlord whose strength comes from the gods themselves. But despite all his power and prestige, he is plagued by a prophecy that threatens to destroy everything he loves. When Kael summons Ishtaer to his room and discovers the marks of the Chosen on her body, including the revered mark of the Warrior, both Warlord and slave seem to have met their match. But as their lives become increasingly entangled and endangered, Ishtaer is forced to test whether the Chosen ever have the ability to choose their own fate.
