Oh wow, did I LOVE this book!

Young Kate becomes the target of the ugly goblin king, Marak, who wants her for his bride. For generations, goblin kings have been kidnapping brides to live in their underground kingdom. There are plenty of rumors about what happens to those women and Kate does her best to prevent her fate, but eventually she is forced to give in. She braces herself for the worst, but things aren't always as they seem...

As Kate settles in to her new life she learns the goblin kingdom is not so terrible after all, and the goblins are actually very kind and courteous. Kate also learns more about her new husband, who isn't the evil monster she thought he was. He's ugly, true, but he's also very charming, witty, kind, and totally hilarious. Halfway through the book I found myself falling in love with him.

The characters and story are great and the ending was precise and perfect. I had a smile on my face through most of the story and laughed out loud more than once. Excellent read!!
