Paladin

Sam is the most promising swordsman among this year’s crop of Paladin trainees...and knows it. Brash, cocky, and unbeatable with a sword (well, almost), Sam is the kingdom of Thule’s best hope against the violence wrought by demons. The only problem is that Sam is really Lady Samantha, daughter of the seventeenth Duke of Haywood, and if her father has his way, she’ll be marrying a Paladin, not becoming one. But Sam has never held much interest in playing damsel-in-distress, and so she rescues herself from a lifetime of boredom and matrimonial drudgery. Pity that Tristan Lyons, the Paladin assigned to train her, is none other than the hero of her childhood. He hasn’t recognized her as Lady Samantha--yet-- but if he does, he’ll take away her sword and send her packing. Sam is not the only trainee hiding secrets: Braeden is a half-demon with a dark past that might be unforgivable. Sam, Braeden and Tristan set out for the western coast, charged with rooting out an infestation of demons that has made the West unlivable. As they travel, they uncover a deep-seated corruption of power that threatens to derail everything they stand for. Rebellion stirs, led by a rival faction of warriors who tempt Sam to join them with an irresistible offer. A war between men is coming, and Sam must pick a side. Will saving the kingdom cost her life -- or just her heart? Reminiscent of Mulan, but with a medieval fantasy twist, Paladin is a tale of adventure, action, and romance.

Do not read further! This author has inappropriate chapters later on. I would do more to discourage readers but I cannot.
Good start, i don't see why it should be removed from the published book. Gives a window to how she came to her decision.
Amazing idea...I hate how the traditional girl is portrayed as a damsel in distress. I love how you made the statement false.
I stare reading it once and then I had to make a new account :/ but It was soo good I came back c:
Awe... That's very nice of you. I bet that made your mom happy. I am glad that you didn't dedicate it to your fat lazy cat like I would have.
I like her thinking. Definitely seems like a character I'm going to get along with just fine.
