The king’s new law says I must marry two men by my twenty-first birthday. I have just turned eighteen, and I am not taking any chances. I am leaving Star Kingdom and my family behind, heading for the mountains to live a life in solitude for a change. No more dodging the brushes of men in the crowded streets.
That is the way I want it until Arrow shows up and follows me. At least he is kind and keeps his distance. He knows what happened to me when I was thirteen. How three men raped, and they left me for dead. I live with the nightmares and can’t deal with the fear they cause.
The more I am with Arrow, I begin to feel safe. I watch him, and as we become closer, I want to know what it would be like in his arms. Will his kiss be as sweet as he is to me?
I’ve watch Jenna for years and know the awful past she survived. She has nothing to do with me or any other man, and when she leaves, I must follow and protect her. She heads for my home village, and I want to be by her side as she starts over. I want to show her what love is and that she doesn’t have to fear it.
Returning home, I will return to my past. The things I have, I am not proud of. But if Jenna discovers them, will she ever forgive me and give us a chance for love?
