"Miranda is truly a gifted story writer. This book bewitched me with its tale of growing acceptance, romance and ultimately, love, between two very different people. I highly recommend it to fans of fantasy romance." --Karen Tomlinson, USA Today bestselling author of the Goddess and the Guardians series
"Miranda Honfleur creates a dark new fantasy world glittering with equal parts danger and passion. Readers will fall in love with this lush world and its fearless heroine, compelling hero and complex villains." --Claire Luana, author of the Moonburner series
"Conflict and romance perfectly blended... This is a talented author truly strutting her stuff and showing off just how to build a consistent and creative world populated by strongly crafted characters and then take all these ingredients and blend them into a well plotted, well written story... The book is most definitely one to read, and it is easy to highly recommend." -- The Mysterious Amazon Customer, Top Contributor: Fantasy Books, Top 1000 Reviewer
"Miranda Honfleur creates a world and characters that suck you in and whisk you away. There's heart-felt romance, sinister danger, plenty of action, and personal growth. The story has several Beauty and the Beast characteristics that are woven in, but never feel rehashed or overused... I can't wait for Book 2!" -- Amanda's Books and More
"I can't say enough good things about this story. It swept me away with action, adventure, romance and some seriously scary moments. Well done!" --Angela J. Ford, author of the Four Worlds series
"For those who enjoy Beauty and the Beast retellings or high-fantasy romance stories, I definitely recommend No Man Can Tame. It has all the appeal of both the genres beautifully woven together in a satisfying and charming package." --J.M. Butler, author of the Tue-Rah Chronicles
"This book shows what Honfleur's fans have known all along: her immersive world is full of stories begging to be told. And what a tale this was! Fans of the Blade and Rose series will love the links between these series, but make no mistake. No Man Can Tame is perfectly capable to stand on its own... The compelling predicament of the main characters pulled me into the story almost immediately, and the plot unfolded in such a beautiful way..." --Katherine Bennet, author of the Enlightened series
"There is so much to love about this fantasy romance from Miranda Honfleur. From the world building to the tension to the unexpected vulnerabilities of strong characters, No Man Can Tame just nailed it!" -- Samantha MacLeod, author of the Loki series
"Honfleur's retelling of Beauty and the Beast is a captivating, page-turning adventure filled with unexpected twists and turns, yet retains that emotional, magnetic pull between both Beast and Beauty that makes the fairy tale special. Aless is a strong-willed, determined yet flawed heroine with a mind of her own, and the romance with her prince is epic." -- Emily Allen West, author of Eye of the Beholder
"A lovely take on Beauty and the Beast. Breathtaking love blooms between an engaging heroine and truly honorable hero in a challenging situation." Kyra Halland, author of the Daughter of the Wildlings series "Honfleur breathes life and authenticity into Aless and Veron, a couple you can't help but fall in love with." --Catharine Glen, author of The Rose Crown

Princess Alessandra (Aless) has been sent out repeatedly to different kingdoms to find a suitable marriage, in hopes of controlling and taming her by her father. Once again she returns home unmarried and no new prospects, resulting in her father arranging a marriage for her. According to him she is set to marry one of the monstrous and mysterious dark-elves in order to forge a treaty and then to strengthen the treaty by Royal Progress to show a united front and harmonious union. She knows that there is no way out, but she isn't going to go without standing up for herself.
Prince Veron on the other hand, has been raised knowing he is to be bargained off by his queen to strengthen the Queendom. He only has one hope and request: that he can trust his new bride and that she marry him willingly.
The couple face opposition at every turn, making their journey a treacherous one which brings them closer together as each page goes on.
Aless is brave, using her intelligence that had previously been surpressed and blatently ignored. She is a strong female character who doesnt go weak in the knees because a strong man is presented to her. Reading through the development of herself and Veron was heartwarming, and just an overall pleasure.
And I can honestly say that this is one of the best romances I have read in a long time.
This book did not disappoint me in any way. I adored the characters, the settings, the plot, and the romance. It was absolutely amazing. Seriously, it's not often that I find myself legitimately jealous of a heroine, but damn if I didn't want to be in Aless's shoes the entire time I was reading. Even some of my favorite romance authors occasionally annoy me with alpha heroes that have severe control issues and superiority complexes, but Veron is a character that I both understood, respected, and adored, every step of the way.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys slow-burn epic romance, mysterious magic, fantastic worldbuilding, and well-developed characters.
Alessandra is a princess who wants to follow her dreams but knows that her decisions are not always going to be her own.
Vernon a prince and dark elf is loyal to a fault and his sense of duty to the queendom unquestioned.
Arranged for marriage to bring peace between the two kingdoms and an united force against the immortali that kill indiscriminately Alessandra and Vernon must find a way to prove to each other and the kingdom's the meaning of peace. And just maybe love along the way.
I love those two characters! This was such a good read.
"No Man Can Tame" is a beautiful love story that reels you in right from the start. The characters are real, raw and believable in their strife and emotions. The evolving emotions and passion between Alessa and Veron is powerful, and pulls you in almost immediately. The relationship definitely meets its fair share of hill and valleys, but ultimately, the love that is found between them proves unbreakable and beautiful.
Set against the backdrop of a world about to go to war, Alessa and Veron's love is a beacon of light in a relatively dark and angst-simmering world.
If you are searching for a love story that sticks with long after the final pages, then "No Man Can Tame" will definitely quench your thirst and leave you wanting more of this enchanted world.

Love love love books that give us a view into two extreme world's with characters to suit each respectively, and to tell us a story of how through all odds, they come together.
The only critique I could have for this book was, I found it to be a bit too mushy gushy romance cliché at some moments and Veron and Aless' relationship was a bit quick and easy.. and one last thing that, not sure if intended on purpose by authour, but found gaps in the "villains" plans and a bit predictable, I'd rather be kept guessing and not underestimate a villain. But then again that could be the background to the main focus which could've been more on the romantic side of things 😊 honestly still loved the story, authour could do with some minor improvements with story ideas etc but honestly great first impression and loved the ideas around the story (loved the avatar vibe going on with bioluminescence etc 😍).
Anyway deffo recommend!
