As a palace concubine, Lakshmi lives a life of luxury. But her life is not as simple as it seems--her placement in the palace as a concubine is a facade; and when the future of a loved one is threatened, Lakshmi must choose between protecting one that she loves or fulfilling her duty to guard the emperor. Further complicated by personal entanglements and physical dangers, will Lakshmi be able to save the one she loves without destroying her own life in the process? AUTHOR'S NOTE: The Bodyguard will be updated each Monday until the series is complete. Enjoy!
