Seventeen year old Jocelyn’s world collapses when her family is murdered by Prince Zven—her betrothed. And she is next.
After discovering Zven’s secret plan to poison his father the king, she escapes with her life and his secret.
Jocelyn finds temporary asylum, but when Prince Zven closes in she must alienate her last friend by accepting help from the mysterious soldier Taggert—the man her friend has fallen in love with.
The thrill-seeking Taggert is more than willing to help Jocelyn flee the ruthless prince. Danger is good for the soul after all, and what could be more dangerous than racing across the kingdom with Jocelyn?
Taggert uses his questionable connections to elude the prince and enlists an eclectic group of allies to aid Jocelyn: a drunken rouge, a jilted pirate princess, and a silent enigmatic spy.
Jocelyn and Taggert’s new romance is interrupted when it becomes apparent that one of their allies is sending the prince information about her whereabouts. Who is the betrayer? And can Jocelyn use Prince Zven’s secret to stop him before he uses the betrayal to find her?
