By the time Maura turned eighteen, she had high hopes for her future. However, on her eighteenth birthday when King George showed up in her small town to celebrate, her future plans shifted. The king had heard a prophecy that she would be the most beautiful woman in the land and had her raised for marriage but Maura has a different idea. Alistair the mercenary rode into town behind the king and Maura was immediately swept off her feet.
After a quick escape, would Maura and Alistair be allowed to live and love each other away from the king’s kingdom, or will the king hunt them down to reclaim his prize that he had patiently waited eighteen years for?
