Adopted into her royal status, Nobi is not your typical princess. She is of mixed heritage in a world where that is forbidden, a myth to many, kept secluded within the gates of her mystical people. Others’ thoughts, often cruel, bombard her, causing her not to trust her own mind. Nobi can also interpret meaning from the wind.
Nobi despises the men of Rowan, believing one of them raped her mother resulting in her birth. Yet she is promised to Lord Erick, the future Ruler of Rowan, to ensure the safety of her people. Drugged to compliance, Nobi walks down the aisle and into a new world.
Erick is a powerful and handsome young warrior, chosen to take over his father’s place of power. Reluctant to take a wife, he agrees to the unprecedented arrangement to forge a new era. When he lifts his bride’s veil he discovers she is none other than the exotic mythical beauty he’d spied a year ago by the river. He soon learns his wife’s uniqueness extends far beyond her appearance…
The passionate dance of resistance between the Princess and the Lord is penetrated by the danger that looms within the city of Rowan. Will accepting her husband’s love be the answer to controlling her gifts, and saving her people?
Reader Alert: Princess Nobi never thought the leader of the people she despises would be able to set her passions afire! Lord Erick Dean never imagined he would see his mythical beauty again after spying her in secret, until she appeared before him as his bride.
To My Readers: I love the elements that are spun into this epic tale: passion, resistance, struggle, love. Nobi and Erick took me on a journey I will never forget along with their supporting characters whose stories are begging to be told as well. I hope reading Your World’s Captive gives you the butterflies, tears, and laughter that it gives me time and time again.
Cuddle up with a soft blanket and enjoy!
