In a land plagued with fear of dark magic and monsters, a princess decides that her destiny isn't worth living. After running away from Cloiten, her home, Alexandria thinks that everything will go as she plans. She'll find a secluded home and live alone for the rest of her days, but she wasn't counting on Nicholas.
He's a tall man with muscles that most people could only dream of, but despite all this, he has a heart of gold. Alex is used to men who care only about themselves and protect only those who they think are useful to them. She's definately not used to a man who would put her before him and do whatever she said.
Nicholas' golden heart is just what it might take for her to except her royal fate, but when she does, she wants him to be her king. The only problem? He's a commoner. She a princess. Law is the only thing keeping them apart. That and the sudden knowledge that a new horde of Darklens, a race of hideous creatures that hunt the royals, are now loose in Cloiten.
Even though it's Nicholas' fate to save the royals, he feels as though he can't. Yes, he would do anything for the princess, but it's not his will to do it, it's his capability. That and he feels like he doesn't deserve a beautiful golden haired princess as the love of his life. He still presses on and let's her enjoy the strong love they become tangled up in. Will that love prevail through endless dangers and the fact that even if the Darklens are defeated, the law won't allow it?
