#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey
displays her "mastery of historical romance" (Entertainment
Weekly) with a dazzling novel about a stolen princess who
must save her king and country by wedding the palace guard
who wrongly imprisoned her.
Assassin Leonard Kastner agrees to commit an abhorrent
crime for an astronomical sum—kill the infant heir to the
European kingdom of Lubinia. Just as he is about to carry
out the heinous deed, the baby awakens...and smiles at him.
Losing his heart to tiny Alana Stindal, Leonard sweeps her
out of their homeland to safety in England where he
conceals her true identity from her and gives her an
education fit for a queen.
Eighteen years later, when the king of Lubinia faces a
revolt because he has not produced another legitimate heir,
Leonard knows he must take Alana home to prevent a civil
war. But at the Lubinian palace no one believes Alana is
the missing princess. Christoph Becker, the captain of the
palace guards, arrests Alana because he suspects she is a
pretender or a seductive assassin. When the king recognizes
Alana as his long-lost daughter he proudly betroths her to
the one man he believes is capable of protecting her and
eliminating the shadowy figures who are determined to
destroy his dynasty—Christoph Becker.
