As princess and the single heir to the throne of her kingdom, Beth is at the will of her parents. That means never leaving the safety of the kingdom or the wall around it. For years she's dreamed of seeing the other side, but when that dream becomes a reality she isn't sure if it's really a dream or a nightmare. Christian has been at the mercy of a power even greater than the king and queen. He would do anything to be free again--even give up the thing he loved the most. The problem he faces is that there's no longer anything he loves. Getting a job protecting the princess was the distraction he thought he needed. He just didn't realize that he would be pulling her into his world. Together, they're faced with trials neither of them thought they would see. Two people facing entirely different challenges are both forced to make the same decision: Is love worth it?
