A fierce elite guard. A loyal lady in waiting. They must work together to save three princesses from certain death.
On the verge of dying after giving birth to twins, the queen of Mercia pleads with Lady Felicia to save her infant daughters. With the castle overrun by King Ethelwulf’s invading army, Lady Felicia vows to do whatever she can to take the newborn princesses and their three-year old sister to safety, even though it means sacrificing everything she holds dear, possibly her own life.
Gravely wounded in battle and knowing all is lost to his enemy, the king of Mercia tasks Lance, one of his fiercest elite guards, to protect his family along with keys to an ancient treasure. As Lance makes plans to sneak the princesses out of the capital city, he doesn’t need or want Lady Felicia’s help.
With the dark enemy in pursuit, Lance and Felicia must put aside their differences to outrun King Ethelwulf and prevent him from killing the princesses. In a desperate attempt to hide the young girls, Lance and Felicia agree to a marriage of convenience, a decision that will change their lives—and hearts—forever.
Loved this book so much!! I stayed up all night even though I was still tired from my trip to Michigan!
The story was delightful and so many adventures!! I was kept on the edge of my seat and holding my breath to see what happens next!! Jody does have that effect on us.
That's what I love about her writings.
With God all things are possible. All we need to do is ask!!
Trouble is, a lot of people myself included think they can do it all on their own. At some point and time we're all going to need devine intervention from the Lord to help us out.
I'm thinking that Lance finally figures this one out. I had a feeling it was going to take something drastic to make him see.
I think my favorite is Felicity. She's brave, strong, caring and can adjust to certain situations if need be. That's my kind of lady.
I love being kept up late into the evening and then cry bc my adventure is over!!
Well done Jody Hedlund!!!
I strongly recommend this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. No compensations were received and all opinions are my own!!
