She knew she was playing with fire…and was eager to burn.
Desperate and on the run from an arranged marriage, Erika von Ecker disguises herself as a cadet and joins the Prussian Army. At the very least, she hopes the scandal will condemn her in the eyes of the nobility. The last thing she expects is sharing very close quarters with a man forbidden to her, the devastatingly handsome heir to a vast duchy, Alaric Martens von Breidenbach.
All his life, Alaric has been groomed to take his place and title as Duke von Breidenbach. But first he must serve as a soldier for his king. He’s shocked when he realizes the coltish lad assigned to billet with him is, in fact, an alluring woman. Revealing her identity could bring dire consequences for them both. But, as war looms, keeping the intrepid beauty’s secret threatens everything Alaric holds dear, including his heart. He must do anything in his power to get Erika out of harm’s way—even it means making her more than his mistress…
