Dainy doesn't know that she is the lost Duchess of Jordinia, believed to have been assassinated fifteen years ago. Nor does she know that her uncle has implemented an illegal contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward!
Though at odds, three clashing rivals - including a noble giant, a forest dweller and a thieving rake - voyage together by woodland, prairie and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding the assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, young Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic quadrangle as each suitor competes to capture her heart.
Charmingly romantic and bursting with political intrigue, startling twists and vivid characters, readers of romance and fantasy alike will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.
This book was confusing to say the least. It was like Moses meets Anastasia Romanof. Although the book is said by the author to be a timeless story, it was a hard read. The swashbuckling part and the fact that it involved royalty and castles seemed as though it was in early times. But the story of the lock that could only be opened by royal blood seemed beyond the time frame of the whole book. I was very disappointed by the whole book and if there is a Book 2, I would not purchase it.
