One sweet, unassuming book blogger targeted by an assassin. One handsome prince sworn to protect her. These two have nothing in common, except undeniable chemistry and the target painted on their backs.

When Prince Conner Udine promised his best friend and former Marine buddy that he’d protect his sister, he never imagined that it would lead to a lifetime commitment. But as a sixteenth century law resurfaces, his life plan takes a drastic turn, and now he has to marry before his thirtieth birthday or he’ll lose the throne and hasten his father’s illness that will lead to his death.

Olivia Hawke’s feelings for Conner are her best kept secret. A romance between them would be inappropriate. But now that he’s her protector, and she has to live in his castle, that secret is getting harder to keep. And when it’s revealed that he has to marry someone, and fast, things go from awkward…to dangerous.

Will she agree to give him her hand and finally get the happily-ever-after she’s always dreamed of, or will her fear for his safety, and her own, cause her to turn down the proposal of her dreams?
