Bestselling author Jude Deveraux surrounds a regal heroine with the intrigue and excitement of a forbidden love in this lush, romantic tale of adventure and passion.

To escape her enemies, they return to her royal domain—with Aria posing as an American bride. But if their daring charade succeeds, Aria will have to choose—between the kingdom she was born to rule, and the man she was destined to love…
