Fantasy romance, with a heavy emphasis on the romance.

Six hundred years ago, T'Imoshen's ancestors, the T'En, conquered the land of Fair Isle. However, over generations of interbreeding, the unique characteristics of the T'En - magical powers and a striking physical appearance (think elvish) - have all but died out. T'Imoshen is nearly the last 'throwback' to have the appearance and powers of the T'En.

One of the only others is her betrothed, Reothe. However, although she's physically attracted t

The T'En are a legendary race, exiled from their homeland six centuries ago, washed-up on the shores of Fair Isle where they conquered the people and brought culture, music, art and equality, making it an island rich in trade, wealth and culture. A race of slightly matriarchal aristocrats with silver hair, wine dark eyes and mind powers, Imoshen is the last of them - called a "Throwback" - and her relatively peaceful, complacent land has just been conquered by the invading Ghebites led by Genera ...more

The T'En trilogy has been my secret pleasure for years, I've read them so many times that the books are held together with duct tape lol. I read them out loud to my husband once and he loved it to. I have always been team Reothe but I love all of her characters so much and the whole world that she builds for these books. I'd love to read more and many times I've tried to search for books similar to these but alas none hold a candle to them. If you haven't read them give it a try it's totally wor ...more

This book literally changed my life.
I found it in my high school library when i was in about year eight. I'm not sure i should have been reading this genre of novel in year eight, but there you go!
I was searching for something, anything to ease the torment of teen hood and bury myself in. This was the salve for my wounds.
As one of the first fantasy novel i'd ever read, it had just the right balance of magic, fear, suspense, gore and romance - ok LOTS of romance - but let's not confuse this wit

Just recently I went somewhere where Rowena was doing a signing. So I thought I should give this book another read.

Just as I remembered, it was amazing!
The characters are well defined, the world is almost real! There are points in this story where you just want to reach forward and shake the characters!

And to respond to some of the other reviews. Tulkhan isn't from a world like our own, he comes from somewhere where women are looked down upon as animals. I think the way he treats Imoshen is more

I read this book under the title of "Broken Vows"... but there are several books with that title. This cover looks newer, so maybe it was changed.

Broken Vows

Amazing, Daniells has an amazing gift of creating complex, deep and driven characters that come to life. The story falls naturally, the character and plot development feels organic, as if these people are real. Real cultures, motivations, prejudices and emotions.

Friend gave to me as a "trashy romance". It wasn't that trashy and was pretty good for a fantasy romance. Title must have changed over the years as it was originally under the name of Broken Vows.
