Fortune's Fool by Mercedes Lackey
The seventh daughter of the Sea King, Ekaterina is more than a pampered princess—she's also the family spy. Which makes her the perfect emissary to check out interesting happenings in the neighboring kingdom…and nothing interests her more than Sasha, the seventh son of the king of Belrus. Ekaterina suspects he's far from the fool people think him. But before she can find out what lies beneath his facade, she is kidnapped!
Trapped in a castle at the mercy of a possessive Jinn, Ekaterina knows her chances of being found are slim. Now fortune, a fool and a paper bird are the only things she can count on—along with her own clever mind and intrepid heart.…
Ahhh another book in the Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms. I'm in love with this fantasy series. There might be romance aspects but honestly the reason to read it is to see how Mercedes twists well known fairy tales into her world of Five Hundred Kingdoms where the ever present Tradition tries to force ever one into one of the usual paths.
Another must read.
