This is a very interesting read! Sariana is all business, but has been living in an environment that promotes a much easier going and emotional life style. She is quite sure she doesn't want to stay in it or bend to it, but after a year of living there, she catches 'small' clues that she just may be 'going soft'. When she receives a marriage proposal that should be the best thing for her, and she finds herself wishing for 'love', she KNOWS she's been there too long. Trying to prove herself so she can go home, she hires a Shield to help her. She gets MUCH more than she bargains for simply because she refuses to give any credit to the legends and stories the people believe.
Sariana is one of those women you just KNOW can be so much more than they are. Gryph realizes this and sets out to win her for his own....and show her that there is much more to life than business. Their quest proves to be intriguing and will keep your attention from start to finish. Saraiana just LOVES to do things differetly! I rate this book a 5/5. It is going on my keeper shelf!
