A royal assassination and an elf princess to save. The world just went to hell.
The news rocked Nicoletta Dean’s mundane life. Nic is one of 12 mages tasked with protecting the princess. She’s prepared for this dogfight. Illusions are her specialty, but that’s not all she has. Her snarky attitude and knowledge of runes gives her an edge. She can trust no one, not even former advocates, anyone can be a part of the rebellion. Nic knows nothing about babies. But she won’t let that stop her, not even if it means she’s learning to change diapers while on the run.
Marik knows the Nightshade Guild mages will be called in to protect the princess. Their diverse powers make them the perfect choice, but with assassins chasing their ass, they might not be enough. As a royal born elf, it’s his duty to protect his baby cousin. Too bad, Nicoletta Dean refuses to trust him. Good thing he’s as stubborn as she is and won’t take no for an answer because she needs his help.
Stetson is a vampire with blood soaked hands. He’s lived a thousand years loyal to no one but himself until now. When word gets out that Ameria’s been orphaned, he’ll do anything to prove his loyalty to Nic. He won’t be on the wrong side of history this time and he’ll do anything for Nic to prove himself.
The stakes are dangerous, lives are in the balance, but no one said they can’t have a little fun while saving the world.
