She’s falling for a man she hates. He’s betting on her trust.
Princess Mykaleen Adler would do anything to save her dying father. But, when she’s kidnapped by a rival kingdom’s commander, her devotion wavers. Developing feelings for her enemy could destroy her future and her kingdom. Unless her charming captor is the one person telling her the truth.
Drake Vestry’s focus is on finding King Adler’s deadly weapons. Unfortunately, the only way to the weapons is through the king’s daughter, who happens to be the most distracting and entertaining assignment he’s ever had. Gaining the princess’s trust might mean losing his heart forever.
She’s fighting for her kingdom. He’s committed to his mission. Can they find their way together, or will broken trust be the most destructive weapon of all?
If you have read the previous book, then Drake is a familiar face.
This isn’t a love story. This is an adventure.
I like Myka. She’s hilarious and I found her to be relatable besides her bad judgment. The banter between Myka and Drake is great. I love a haters-to-lovers story. The bickering always seems better. I don’t know why I have that preference.
You don’t shoot someone just because you’re offended.
I had so many pop culture references that would automatically come to my head. Examples: It’s a flesh wound. Monty Python and the Holy Grail “Tis but a scratch”. Like at any moment, he might lay down on his side and prop his head up, accentuating his biceps and solid chest. Titanic “Draw me like one of your french girls”.
The ending has me in a freaking mess. Like what in the smell! Oh I can’t wait for this next book. I need answers.
