Captain Sir Sheridan Drake is no knight in shining armor, even if he happens to be famous for his heroism. An exiled princess with revolutionary ideas is just a convenient opportunity to get himself out of debt. Princess Olympia isn't precisely fairy-tale royalty herself; she's plump and a little shy, and desperate to do something of importance in the world. But though their meeting begins with her hopeless hero worship, a harrowing journey to the bleak edge of the world will transform them both, plunging Olympia into the darkest depths of Sheridan's battered warrior's heart and awakening demons she could never imagine in her dreams of glory.

I wish I had a book like this to read every week!
- Leslie Keshishian
The narration is excellent, but to me the book was tedious and too full of angst. I listened to the first ten chapters, then skipped to the last two chapters to find out what happened. That satisfied me and I never went back to read the chapters in between. There are just too many upsetting situations (whipping, torture, brutality, etc) for me and the love story just could not overcome my dread of the upsetting themes. I know PTSD is a problem and is bad, but I don't listen to books to be upset - I want to be entertained. Also, the h/h in this book just did not do much for me. I particularly did not warm up to the Princess. She was too naive and oblivious to reality. Other readers are very high on this book - but it just was not for me.
