Prince Alexander has just turned twenty, instigating crucial events in his life and the Kingdom of Aylon. Under instructions from his father, King Xavion, Alexander's first order of business is to choose a young lady with the birthright of Aylon and hor her in making her his wife and eventual queen. Already overwhelmed with his royal duties, Alexander approaches the next chapter of his life without any idea of the surprises that lie ahead for him. When his father prods him to treat a visiting princess as his personal guest during her extended stay in Aylon before she returns to her fiance in Darnell, Alexander reluctantly agrees-until he feels an almost instantaneous chemistry with Arayna that soon leads to forbidden romance. After Alexander discovers his purpose is much deeper than taking the throne, he and Arayna begin an emotional and strategic battle to live life, rather than allowing life to live them. But as Alexander breaks the conventions of his position and era, he puts everything at risk in order to pursue his dreams. In this historical romance, a prince embarks on a touching, coming-of-age journey where he hopes to discover himself, his purpose, and true love.
