The youngest of the Eastern European royals, Princess Elisabeta has led a sheltered life, happily growing up amongst the townspeople and nobility alike, but the war changed all that. When a powerful secret is unveiled, Elisa strives to make sense of her father’s death and uncovers a traitor within. Crippled beneath the weight of fear and hopelessness, she has no idea that she is the missing piece to the mystery surrounding her people.
Tavian Kovachi has been summoned back home with the singular mission of guarding the princess. However, he soon finds that this is no simple task, as he and the ever-elusive Elisa are quickly caught up in something bigger than themselves, not to mention his deepening attraction to her.
With the help of an ancient society of protectors, the princess must learn to have courage and put her hope in the God of Brasov. Meanwhile, as he fights to stop the plot against the royal family, Tavian finds himself torn between the lovely princess and an even greater loyalty: his nation.
