Bad Boy’s Bard
A Mythmatched story
Fae Out of Water, Book Three
Old secrets, new lies, and fae behaving badly. What could go wrong?
As far as rock star Gareth Kendrick, the last true bard in Faerie, is concerned, the only good Unseelie is . . . well . . . there’s no such thing. Two centuries ago, an Unseelie lord abducted Gareth’s human lover, Niall, and Gareth has neither forgotten nor forgiven.
Niall O’Tierney, half-human son of the Unseelie King, had never lost a wager until the day he swore to rid the Seelie court of its bard. That bet cost him everything: his freedom, his family—and his heart. When he’s suddenly face-to-face with Gareth at the ceremony to join the Seelie and Unseelie realms, Niall does the only thing inhumanly possible: he fakes amnesia. Not his finest hour, perhaps, but he never revealed his Unseelie heritage, and to tell the truth now would be to risk Gareth’s revulsion—far harder to bear than two hundred years of imprisonment.
Then a new threat to Gareth’s life arises, and he and Niall stage a mad escape into the Outer World, only to discover the fate of all fae resting on their shoulders. But before they can save the realm, they have to tackle something really tough: mending their own broken relationship.
There’s suspense, and heartbreak, a haunting feeling as we follow Gareth and Niall’s story… The whole series is wonderful for sure and I’d recommend this to anyone who is a fan of fantasy, magic, myth, and legend.
I am not really sure what to say about this story to accurately convey how it made me feel. I have loved this series from word one. It was such a great fit for me and hit on so many things I love to read. Bad Boy’s Bard was no less perfect for me. … God I could talk about these men for days and never get to all the ways they impacted me. … I highly recommend this series. I felt it was very well done and I loved every minute of my time spent with each couple.
Of all the installments to this trilogy, I found this book to be the most touching. …of the author’s books I’ve read so far, “Bad Boy’s Bard” is her best yet. The world building and characterizations really pulled me into the story.
