Passionate and headstrong, Alecia is no ordinary princess. Angered by the cold-blooded murder of her first love, she sets out to avenge his death.

Army Captain Vard Anton, the epitome of masculine strength and grace, is dealing with some dark secrets of his own. When he is appointed Alecia’s body-guard, both find it hard to ignore the chemistry between them.

With assassination attempts and the threat of an arranged marriage looming over her, Alecia realizes her time is running out. But Alecia’s biggest battle is the one within as she tries to suppress the raging desire she feels for the powerfully attractive Vard. Can Alecia resist Vard while trying to exact revenge and avoiding the lecherous attentions of her husband-to-be? Will the power of love and desire be enough to unite Alecia and Vard forever?

Though separated by class and palace intrigues, Alecia and Vard are entwined by desire in this wonderful fantasy romance.



Since the murder of her first love, Princess Alecia has been going out at night and killing the murderers responsible for his death. Which, is how she runs into Captain Anton. He’s out patrolling when he sees a fight break out and is ready to bring the young boy who is causing all the trouble in for questioning when the lad escapes. He has no idea that the boy from the other night is the same as the Princess who he has now been tasked to protect from the person who’s going around murdering men.

I liked the characters in this story and loved that we got point of views from both Captain Anton and Alecia. You could see the troubles that they both face personally that the other is unaware of. I like the spin that the author took on Anton’s abilities but we are not really brought up to speed with Alecia’s. There is hints that she might have premonitions but it isn’t confirmed.

I’m not sure if this story is going to be part of a series or not. There were a lot of loose stings at the end that makes me think that there will be another story. I enjoyed the story enough that if a sequel were to come out I would pick it up although I’d have to reread the first book again.


Captain Anton is a big man. So I found it pretty comical when he disguises himself as a maid. At first Alecia isn’t quite sure what to think of this large woman in a gown which is way too small for her but then it is revealed as the Captain. For some reason, I just couldn’t picture him in a maids clothing.
