Loathing the thought of his beloved Oriana in the arms of another man, fearless Zyraxes delivers death upon the Roman enemy. With only the rugged land as his bed and the sky as his blanket, trouble finds him often.
Summoned to aid Oriana’s father in the war against two powerful enemies—one of them Oriana’s savage husband—Zyraxes proves himself worthy of more than just noble titles and coin. But he wants none of it. What he wants is her.
When Zyraxes discovers a broken and nearly dead Oriana, though forbidden, he disregards her father’s orders to leave her to her death, and instead chooses to protect and conceal her. Will saving her be enough to win her heart? Will his part royal lineage make him worthy of her love?
ARC I wasn't sure what to think about this book when I first started reading it. It has a lot of fighting, and it is has a warrior's spirit throughout the whole book. It makes me really believe that is how warrior's were back then. Lots of drama happens in this book, and it has a beautiful love story. However I wasn't personally a big fan of Zyraxes or of Oriana. I loved the book before this a lot more than I liked this one. Zyraxes and his "brothers" have go through a lot in this book. Getting Oriana back, and then losing her and Nerva at one point in time, and then having to get them back and fight again. Lots of changes take place for the world around them with all of the fighting, and them just trying to get back what was theres to begin with. Overall I would say this book is just okay, it's not something I would want to read over and over but it was very interesting.
