It's not often someone gets the drop on Alwyn Jove, Imperial Warden and powerful magic-wielder—but when he wakes up in a damp, dark cell with nothing but the lump on his head and a dashingly handsome rogue for company, he knows that a sore head is the least of his troubles.

Dain Freemantle, Ranger of the Wilds and the most charming dagger-wielder this side of the Weyrich River, was not pleased at having been sent to liberate one of the King's Wardens from some dark gaol in the middle of nowhere—but being locked in a confined space with the mysterious Alwyn, all dark skin and rippling muscles and brooding eyes, was just the kind of adventure Dain needed.

Tasked by the king to work together and unravel a threat to the Kingdom, the unlikely pair must learn to get along, but can they overcome their differences and forgive each other …

Lovely book

I liked reading Warden. It is quite gentle and lightly written and there is humour! Delyth also uses a lot of nice words in this novella.

There were some words that I have never read before and actually I really love that. There were so much delightful words! I mean, I do not often come across a work where the word 'gaol' is used, so I love it when I see it being used. It might seem old-fashioned, but that is what I like about it.

I really liked the writing style of this novella!
