“Vaughan’s brawny barbarian romance recreates the delicious feeling of adventure and the thrill of exploring mysterious cultures created by Robert E. Howard in his Conan books and makes for a satisfying escapist read with its enjoyable romance between a plucky, near-naked heroine and a truly heroic hero.”—Booklist
The daughter of a Warrior King, Lara was trained as a healer. With her father dead and her incompetent half-brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to warring Firelanders. Unable to depose her sibling or negotiate peace, Lara serves her people by healing the warriors—on both sides of the conflict—who are injured in battle.
Lara finds herself educated in her enemy’s language and customs in return for her attention and compassion. She never expects that her deeds, done in good faith, would lead to the handsome and mysterious Firelander Warlord demanding her in exchange for a cease-fire. To save her land and her people, Lara trades her freedom to become the Warprize.

This author is a true weaver of dreams and fantasies and a teller of amazing tales. The pictures from my mind’s eye leaped from the words. This fantastic work is obviously fueled by great dedication, hard work, and passion to share, to gift this treasure to and with others.
The imagination and excellent communication is an absolute relief. This was written by a true AUTHOR.
I loved this story and couldn’t put it down until I’d finished. The words flowed with nary a misstep, thus making it easy to become lost in it. There weren’t any surprises. It was instead, like visiting distant but much loved family. I’ll be looking for more by Ms. Vaughan.
A wonderful read
I was reluctant at first to purchase this book because it is expensive for an Ebook. This was worth it. I loved the characters and couldn't put it down. Even sneaking to read some at work! I hope the rest in the series are this well written and worth the cost as well.
