For Caillen Dagan, a defiant soldier of fortune, survival
isn't a right, it's a brutal daily battle. Moving through
the Ichidian universe like a wraith, his brushes with the
law and death are legendary. But when an act of rare heroism
reveals his hidden birthright, he's forced into a world much
more dangerous and cold-hearted than the bloody streets
where he was raised-one of obscene wealth and lethal politics.
Ferocious and determined, Desideria Denaraii serves as an
official bodyguard for her queen. Born of questionable
genetics, she will do anything to prove herself worthy of
the weapons she carries and the position she's won by
combat. But when she uncovers a ruthless plot to assassinate
the queen and overthrow her country's government, Desideria
is caught in the crosshairs.
With assassination contracts out on both of them, Caillen
and Desideria must learn to fight together or die alone. And
if they fail, their governments will fall into the hands of
an unimaginable evil.
Sherrilyn Kenyon's books are never just about the romance. They are about the personalities of the hero and heroine, what made them the way they are today combined with their own personal strengths and weaknesses, and what they have to overcome to solve all the problems, and get each other! To me, and millions of other readers,this makes the story more interesting. The hero doesn't just have to "save the day" and "get the girl". He must overcome the obstacles of his past that become obstacles in his present, along with all the other problems he must resolve! AND he has a strong-willed, independent heroine to contend with, and learn to work with, along with whatever baggage she may or may not be carrying, as well.Sherrilyn's books are about PEOPLE, in risky, sometimes heart-breaking situations,who rise to the occasion and triumph. They are NOT your run-of-the-mill heroes and heroines,so why would they have run-of the-mill romances? We love what you do, AG! Keep it up!!! (Mary Holden 6:42pm April 14, 2012)
