Olivia Davenport’s plan is destined to fail.
She is going through with it anyway, of course. After all, it is the chance of a lifetime. The unreasonable rules of others should not stand in her way.
In her small kingdom of Stewartsland, Olivia trains with the squires and harbors a secret dream. She longs to become a knight under the command of the Master-of–Arms, who just happens to be her father. He has indulged her passion so far, but they both know a simple fact – girls may not attain knighthood. Dismayed by the constant discouragement of her ambitions, she makes an impetuous decision to disguise herself as a boy in order to sneak on a mission. The consequences are not at all what she anticipated.
When her deception is revealed, she is sent home in disgrace; however, an unexpected turn of events puts her at the center of a dangerous plot against the King. The ensuing adventure finds her grappling with mercenaries and outlaws, yet these pale in comparison to her newly awakened emotions. She finds not only her life at risk, but also her heart, when the aloof Prince Liam begins to affect her in ways she never thought possible. In the end, it is her courage and unique spirit which must guide her through the challenges she encounters both physical and emotional.
” Great Book..a must read.”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Nerdigirlbooks
I received this wonderful book in exchange for an honest review from the author. Jane is such a sweet person and I really enjoy talking to her. Thank you so much for sending me your book.
I really enjoyed this book and was grabbed instantly. Olivia is such a great character and her development through out the book is flawless. Prince Liam is a wonderful character as well and I love how they interacted. I also enjoyed how it wasn’t really an insta-love. I mean they fell in love over the span of a week but it was so cute how it blossomed. I found myself laughing out loud at some parts of this story and I would recommend it to anyone who likes stories that resemble fairy tales. Not because it was a fairy tale but it just felt that way to me.
About the Author
Jane cannot remember a time she did not love reading and this progressed into a passion for writing. She lives in New Jersey in a house full of boys including one over-indulged cat. In her rare quiet moments, she can be found curled up with said cat and a good book.
