Soriana can’t escape the man who first taught her to love, and though Ranneth keeps his distance, she still can’t deny the passion forbidden to them both. King Trenor is a doting husband, but what she needs is a man who understands her worth and the threats of war hedging in from the west. A visit from a foreign delegate and a journey to secure an alliance with their neighbours up north has Soriana striving to prove herself, but being the key to peace between the two nations may ask more of her than she’s willing to give. And as she continues to fight the passion she still can’t deny, she realizes that sometimes even the hidden battles leave scars.
