I will protect her at all costs… whether she likes it or not.
Once upon a time, I threw a princess over my shoulder and carried her out of a bar fight.
Jessa has carried that grudge ever since. Hates my guts. She’s uncooperative on her best days. Feisty. Stubborn. It’s adorable. Not a word I’d ever tell my best friend, of course. Because she’s his little sister.
The plan was royally simple. Go undercover and protect her. Seeing as it’s all I want to do already, it should have been the easiest assignment of my life. But of course, she is determined to cause trouble. And all the forbidden temptation manhandling her entails.
The stakes are too high to mess this up.
The monarchy is at risk.
And so is my heart.
