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 who holds her life in the palm of his hand and yet somehow sets her heart on fire. It’s a story of inner strength and determination- where a young girl must find her way among magic and secrets. Lust and envy. Because although Laurena thinks herself ordinary, others have discovered her birthright- an unknown power that rivals even the Elders- and they’ll do anything steal it.
