Two guards ushered the prince in the room and I damn near fell out of my seat. This couldn't be right. I hadn't seen his face yet but I knew. I knew he was my mate and I had to make a quick decision. Do I stand my ground and put him to death because of who he is politically or do I protect him? I never wanted to find my mate. I wanted to rule the kinetics alone. I wanted to show my father I didn't need a man by my side to rule and now I was thrown for a loop. I felt like throwing my hands in the air and screaming out 'plot twist' at this interesting curve ball life had thrown me.
