Book Description:

On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.

Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.

Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure who she truly is.


Vivien is feeling tense with her impending birthday, but it mainly has to do with her crush with fellow student Brad.  When she decides to take a chance and let him know how she feels, it ends up with her huffing away and embarrassed by the incident.  Needing to blow of steam, she heads for her daily run only to end up in the middle of an attack and meeting Brad's twin brother Aedan.  Everything Vivien knew is about to change, she is a princess from another realm and Aedan and Brad are there to serve as her bodyguards.

This was the beginning of what I believe will be a series, it was intriguing because Brad and Vivien definitely have feelings for one another but Brad wears his duty of her bodyguard with honor and it interferes with what both want and what they can have.  Impending danger swirls around Vivien as she moves closer to the date she will become Queen.  Can't wait to read the next one.
