She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her.

This marriage is meant to unite both kingdoms, but turns sour when Lia escapes her kingdom right before the wedding. With her friend, Pauline, in tow, they escape to a small village where Lia meets Kaden and Rafe, two mysterious men with a past that they’d rather not share. Little did she know was that one of the men she meets is a prince and the other is an assassin from another kingdom set on a mission to kill her. With shocking secrets that get unraveled as the story progresses, Lia has to figure out who to trust and who to fight against in an action packed book full of secrets and deception. More
