About the Book

"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 is herself is being hunted.

A princess and a commoner. They never should have fallen in love, but they did.

Aire is a lush, romantic fantasy, inspired by ancient Italy and Turkey."

Amber's Review

Lena Goldfinch has a wonderful talent for creating vivid, beautifully imagined fantasy worlds. I loved the sweetness of her novella, The Language of Souls, and I love the added "epic" quality to this longer fantasy romance. Aire is an exciting story that expounds on the ideas of sacrificial love and the existence of realities beyond the common.

I had the pleasure and honor of being a beta reader for this story, and it was a treat to see it grow and to fall in love with it a little bit at a time. With great suspense, enjoyable romance, a grand setting, and some intriguing secondary characters, Aire is a wonderful read. This book has solidified my "fan" status, and I can't wait for Lena to share more of her stories with readers!

*With many thanks to the author for allowing me to read an early copy of the story in exchange for my feedback and my honest opinion.*

About the Author

From Lena's website: "I live in a scenic small town in Massachusetts with my husband, two kids, and a very spoiled Black Lab. In my not-so-murky past, I've worked as a software engineer and a web designer, and now love writing fiction. I also love horses, Xbox Dance Central DC, and Tai Chi, a relaxing but challenging form of exercise/martial art (which is way harder than it looks! ;)).

For reading, I'm a sucker for a good old-fashioned romance, whether it be a traditional Regency, historical romance/mystery, or, naturally, young adult fantasy. I love watching movies with my family and going for walks around a nearby lake, with my very spoiled Black Lab, of course.

Besides wanting to be a writer, I always wanted to be an artist. Although I ended up enjoying a wonderfully fulfilling career in software engineering and web design, I still absolutely LOVE design. Nowadays, I employ both my computer and artistic skills designing my website and also book interiors & covers."
