Quench the Day (Red Wolf Trilogy 1) by Shari Branning

Beautiful, fiery Rowan is of marrying age, but has moved from her parents’ home in the city to her uncle’s house in the country to escape overly-eager suitors. When the (basically, evil) King Ormand sees her at a party and wishes to make her his wife, Rowan elopes with Aaro—a virtual stranger with a crush on her who is preferable to the king. Realizing he’s been tricked, the spurned king gets his revenge by razing Aaro’s estate and leaving him for dead, but not before he kidnaps Rowan and casts a spell on her.
