Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king's army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince's guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can't prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.
The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she's sworn to protect?
I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH! I will post a review of it later when I have all my thoughts together, because it was that good. The sequel is even better, so I really recommend it. The following scene when Prince Damian finally says what he truly feels for Alexa for the first time. SWOON! If happens a little after an attack in the jungle, in where he "saves" her life.
He took one last step so that our bodies touched. I could feel him everywhere - our legs, out hips, out stomachs. "I've made mistakes. So many I can't even count. But saving you was not one of them."His thumbs rubbed across my jaw. I started into his eyes, my heart in my throat. For that breathless moment, there was no sound, no time, nothing beyond his body against mine and his hands on my face. I wanted him to kiss me, I wanted it more than I wanted air, but the tiny part of my brain that was still functioning knew this was wrong. Impossible.I tried to pull away, but he dropped one of his hands to wrap his arm around my body, pressing me to him, refusing to let me break away."But I'm not-""You're perfect," he said roughly, cutting off my protest. "And if I had to do it over again, I would save you every time."His mouth closed over mine and there was no more thought. No more worry. No more pain or loss or fear. There was only Damian. His arm tightened around me, crushing me to him, his other hand threaded through my hair. I clung to him as his lips moved on mine with a need and hunger that nearly overwhelmed me [...]"Alexa," he whispered against my skin. "Do you have any idea what you're doing to me? I've never needed anyone the way I need you."
If you tell me that you didn't swoon over Damian, my girl friend, you are bad. Once again, I really recommend the series (which there still a book to be release). Tell me your swoon scene!
