About the Book:
Five years ago, I was banished from my father’s kingdom even though I was his favorite of his three daughters once upon a time.
Then my father lost his mind, and with no one else willing to take care of him, I took the responsibility upon myself.
We’ve been running ever since.
My two sisters, each queen of their own bordering territories, want ownership of my father’s lands, and they’ll stop at nothing to assume that ownership.
Even if it means killing my father and me.
Which is why we’ve been kidnapped by mercenaries.
But one man among the group of lewd mercenaries stands out…
Devon is withdrawn, quiet, and easily the leader of the pack, though no one seems to know him well.
When I’m entrusted into his care, I find myself fighting the natural attraction I feel towards him, fighting the stupid desire to paint him as anything other than a man being paid to deliver me to my death.
And yet, there’s something unearthly about Devon—something about how he appears to have super-human strength and speed, something about the detailed stories he tells around the campfire, vividly bringing to light the history of the noblest of creatures: the dragon.
Something that tells me maybe this man isn’t all he appears to be…
Selena was banished five years prior for refusing to marry her father's choice for her when the time came. Now, Selena is on the run with her father, who's cognitive condition is in a constant state of declination. The Good Daughter begins with an emotional and heart-wrenching scene. The state of Uther hit me hard and drew on my own experiences caring for a loved one in his condition. My heart broke for Selena.
Through their travels, Selena and Uther have managed to evade capture until they stop in one small village for rest and a meal. A band of mercenaries track and kidnap them, having been hired by one of Selena's sisters. What follows is a tale of deception and double-cross that has Selena twisted up in knots.
Her captor is alluring and isn't all that he appears. There is a secret hiding within Devon. While Selena wants to believe he's a good person, she can't help but think about everything he's done in their short time together.
Selena is a strong heroine and as much as I'd like to praise Devon has a great hero, he does some pretty sketchy things in The Good Daughter. I really hope he redeems himself, and in a spectacular fashion. I enjoyed every single thing about this story. The setting is simple yet perfect for the story being told. The characters are three-dimensional, interesting, and written well. I'm excited to see where these two extraordinary authors take us in book two.
I was provided a copy of this book to read.
