Female guardians don't fall in love - not if they want to remain one of Patel's deadliest warriors.

It's a delicate game - pretending to be a lady when the prize is a crown. One false step and Nakoma will hang for her deception. Lucky for Nakoma, the prince doesn't interest her ... but charming stablehand Lars just might.
