Publisher's Summary

Lady Sophia Kendall, 32nd in line to the throne of Anglion, is only days away from finding out if she will be blessed - or perhaps cursed - with magic. When a vicious attack by Anglion's ancient enemies leaves the kingdom in chaos, Sophia is forced to flee the court. Her protector by happenstance is Lieutenant Cameron Mackenzie, a member of the royal guard, raised all his life to be fiercely loyal to the Crown. Then Sophia's powers manifest stronger than she ever imagined they would, and Cameron and she are inextricably linked in the process.
As a witch unbound by marriage rites, Sophia is not only a threat to the established order of her country but also a weapon for those who seek to destroy it. Faced with old secrets and new truths, she must decide if she will fight for her country or succumb to the delicious temptation of power.

Critic Reviews

"Romance fans will enjoy the growing relationship between Cameron and Sophie, but the story's real strength lies in the web of intrigue Scott creates around her characters." (Publishers Weekly)

heroes voice. ....

Yeah, great read, great plot, jus enuf intrigue, danger & sexy romance to make me wanna buy book 2 when it comes out. Only issue I have is the narrators choice of voice to portray Cameron , the male MC. Didn't fit at all! Kept taking me out of the zone it, tone wasn't right, depth wasn't right either. otherwise, it's worth the price.

Entertaining for a fun and carefree pastime

A bit graphic to begin with but if you stick with it the storyline is intriguing and the characters are compelling enough. Definitely a lighthearted kind of book and a quick read. The performance was somewhat lacking. Many of the characters sounded exactly alike. All in all I enjoyed it. Finished it in about two days. I'll be awaiting the publication of the next book with anticipation!
