Laurena only wanted to serve her king and country. She never dreamed she’d be forced from her homeland, a prisoner bound to a man who doesn’t want her. A man whose moods change like the wind- who holds her life in the palm of his hands and yet somehow sets her heart on fire. To survive she must find her place among this strange new world. A place of magic and secrets. Lust and envy. She must learn to guard her heart and soul. Because a traitor hides among them, waiting for the right time to strike. And though she thinks herself ordinary, others have discovered her birthright and would do anything to use it.
