Love is long-suffering… but she has suffered long enough.
RUBY FINALIST 2019
Behind every Companion is a mentor who must prepare her for the role. For nine years, Petra has existed within the castle walls. For nine years, the king has taken whatever he pleases—even her son. When tragedy strikes, Petra realises she can either accept her fate or run from it. But the man who owns her will stop at nothing to keep her. To survive, she must put her trust in enemy hands. To heal, she must learn to open her heart.
Sir Leksi is the prince's right hand man and Syrasan's fiercest knight. He is also the kingdom's most notorious womaniser. When he stumbles across a runaway in the woods, he is surprised to learn her identity, but even more surprised when he is ordered to protect her. Intrigued by the hunted mentor, he decides to see what lies beneath the unsmiling face and vacant gaze. What he discovers might change him forever…

Impossible to put down!
Tanya Bird has certainly done it again! When I saw this book after finishing reading the third, I was skeptical. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read anyone else’s story other than Aldara and Tyron’s but within the first few pages I was convinced. I loved Leksi as a side character in the companion series and it excited me to see him finally getting his own story as well as getting to know Petra more after only briefly introducing her story in the last book. Their tale was a perfect follow up after Majestic Imposter. We get to see Aldara and Tyron enjoying themselves and the life they’ve made, finally, as well as their children and family. This book lends a closer look at all the characters we’ve wanted updates on as well as another pure love story and the perspective of a mother needing to know her child is loved. 100% recommend to anyone who loves a good love story matched perfectly with action and adventure.
What are you waiting for? This book is AWESOME!
This book is truly AWESOME! It is the finest writing that Mrs. Bird has ever done. If you liked the other books in the Companion series then you're going to love this. I literally jumped for joy at the end. The writing is stunningly beautiful. The characters are strong and the story breathtaking. I have only given five star reviews to three authors. Mrs. Bird has gotten one for every book. She is a remarkable talent. I can't wait to read what she writes next!
Must read. Magical storyline.
I love when Tanya Bird comes out with a new book. It’s like Christmas each time. And like each time, the books get better. This time was magical. I loved reading this book. Couldn’t put it down. Get the book, you won’t be disappointed. I can’t wait for the next book that comes out.
