Keira has accepted Alex's proposal and she's ready to move on with her life. She has never been eager to become royalty, but she is willing to do what she has to in order to marry the man that she
loves. Unfortunately, she has no idea what that will mean or exactly how much she will have to give up. If she can manage to live through the embarrassment of it all... Expectations are high and
the pressure is extreme, and there may be some things that even the prince can't save her from. (Sequel to The General's Daughter, Keira's Fire, and Daughter of the Rebellion)
