Sir Darius Lee is a Knight of the High Order.
But when Darius discovers a stranger in his room in the middle of the night, and the intruder turns out to be a beautiful woman, he begins to question how he is meant to live his life.
Princess Megan of Bethyea is being held captive.
But when two knights help her to escape and bring her back to her home planet, she finds the home she knew no longer exists.
When The Council of Twelve questions Darius about his relationship with Maggie, she tries to flee from The Academy of the High Order to prevent him from losing his knighthood.
Will Darius and Orion find Maggie before she leaves Albion? And if they do, how can they face the decision of The Council? And what about the feelings Orion has developed for the princess?
[This excerpt contains a manmade pool designed to look like a lake.]
As Darius studied her, the girl turned and looked in his direction. Her eyes searched the edge of the woods, and though he felt certain she had not seen him, she abruptly twisted and dove into the water.
He silently cursed and prayed Orion had reached the other side of the lake. He ran up the sloping rock and executed a neat dive into the pool behind the girl. His long arms sliced powerfully through the water, but the heavy traveling cloak he’d grabbed as they left the suite slowed his progress. The woman, on the other hand, flew across the lake, no doubt spurred on by sheer terror.
She reached the other side and nimbly lifted herself out in a small alcove. She ran across a short expanse of grass toward the scant concealment of the sparser trees on this side of the lake, when, without warning, Orion stepped directly into her path from behind a larger tree.
“Hold it right there.” He held out both hands to stop her, but without a pause, she grabbed his wrist and twisted her hip into his midsection, swinging him over her head.
When Darius reached his novice, Orion lay with eyes wide, gasping for breath. As he ran past, he called back with a sidelong grin, “Nice move.”
