When duty and passion collide, they could lose everything...
No one knows that Malkyn is a princess, and that's just the way she wants it. Unwilling to be a pawn in her family's deadly power struggles, she fled across the galaxy. But now Keitera is under siege by a mysterious alien force, and the tall, muscular soldier with whom she shared an unforgettable night of forbidden passion has arrived to escort her home.
As a commoner and a member of the Royal Guard, Ty never should have touched a princess. After she left, he threw himself into his duties. His responsibilities. And tried to forget her. But when ordered to bring her back to their planet, he jumps at the chance. Even though he knows the risks to her safety and to his heart…
Leaving him behind the first time nearly destroyed her. Making a permanent return means possibly forfeiting Ty's life. But as deception and violence flare up all around her, there is no one else that Malkyn can trust. Will their bond be enough to save their world and their love? Or will the fires of war burn them both to ashes?
