Assassins murdered my mother; I know I'm next. All I want is a chance to live my life before it's ruthlessly cut short.
A break from the pressure doesn't seem like much to ask for, but with my country on the brink of invasion, living a normal life is an impossible dream.
One I'll try to claim, despite the risk.
Which is why they've sent him with me for my study abroad experience. Forget meeting anyone outside my carefully curated social circle. Never mind finding a boyfriend. I'm stuck with Lorcan glued to my side.
I despise him for ruining my one chance to try life away from court.
But the night I escape his close watch, death finds me … and I begin to see my guard in a different light. No one can ever know how much my feelings have changed...especially not Lorcan.
Until war comes for us all, and the truth comes out…
