My father, the king, has condemned my friend Lestra to death for treason, and I’ve joined with her brother Slaine, the most beautiful male Enestian I’ve ever seen, to save her. Although even being seen with him is forbidden, for Lestra and the promise I made to my brother, I’m willing to take the risk. But time is short, and if we’re caught, we’ll be labeled traitors and executed.
To enlist help for our daring rescue, Slaine leads me into a dark, dangerous underworld where an uprising against the crown is brewing. And if the rebels discover I’m Princess Murelle, even Slaine’s status as a commander and vow to protect me with his life might not save me.

“Savoring his closeness, I closed my eyes and parted my lips. I heard the slide of shell against shell, and the warmth between us intensified as he leaned closer. Kiss me, Slaine. Kiss me. But our sweet proximity didn’t change. I opened my eyes, and he stepped backward toward the door.”
“He lifted my chin with his finger and kissed me, his lips warm and penetrating. I trembled, my joints tightening as he moved his lips to my throat. Our kissing deepened, my fingers tight against his back, and as I pressed my chest against his, he caught me by the back of my legs and I rolled onto my back. When my shoulders met the cold merilum platform, I pulled Slaine on top of me and plunged my hands under his shirt.”
“Slaine came up next to me and turned so our eyes met. He brought his fingers to my cheek, and my whole body warmed. He tilted his head forward, reducing the space between us, and his lips parted with an alluring smile. Rocking closer, he brought his mouth to mine, barely touching me, until my impulse control melted, and I pushed up on my toes to close the gap.”
A native of San Diego, California, I grew up hanging out at the beach, playing sports, and eventually attending San Diego State University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in English and master’s degree in education. When I'm not nerding out at San Diego Comic-Con or watching Star Wars and The Lord of the Ring’s movies for the umpteenth time, I can be seen doing normal people stuff like cooking delicious meals for my family (I attribute all of my culinary skills to the Food Network) and attending my son’s football games. In my spare time, I write new adult fiction, my biggest passion, and love listening to hard rock music and going to concerts. I hope to live long and prosper, and that you will, too.
