Princess Lia is to be married. It isn't to someone she has fallen deeply in love with, but to a prince that she has never met. She escapes the life chosen for her to be normal and to find love's true happiness. Lia keeps secrets from those that she befriends and comes to love. And it isn't just Lia that has secrets best left untold; an assassin and a prince have secrets that might get Lia captured or killed.

This book is truly amazing and has everything you could possibly want in a book. Just when you think you have everything figured out, something tragic happens to make you want to read more to find out how Lia will work her way out of yet another problem. This book has action, adventure, and romance. I personally loved this book and can't wait to read the second one.
