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.
I read this awhile back and never could comment. I just wanted to say how much I LOVED every minute of this. This is one of my first wattpad books and because of how much I've enjoyed it I've been with wattpad for awhile now. Thank you. Keep writing. You're amazing.
Wow, and just when I began to think that this guy was kind, he leaves a twelve year old with a dead demon
It is very like Tamorra Pierce's Lioness Rampant Series. This is really good, I love it.
She's 12 I thought she would have been 16 or something but hey it's cool. If that was me they must be stupid if they think I would get back in that bed I wouldn't be able to sleep for months
I would have shîtted bricks while I was running away in fear.
I would have died if the dam thing was still standing shoot he wouldn't have to tell me twice to get back I would leave his asś there
