Calista Thorne is destined for a king, but when a gang of landless knights attack her ancestral home of Blackbriar Keep she is ready to defend and sinks a poisoned tip arrow into the commander of the opposing force.  Torch stays conscious long enough to lay claim to the keep and Calista herself before passing out leaving Calista to either cure Torch or watch her father be executed.

Hating the position she is in Calista knows that saving Torch is going to be touch and go, she must save him, and as the days pass, she becomes a little more enthralled with his tautly muscled body, and his whispered demands.

Torch is determined to win back the throne which is rightly his by birth from the man who killed his father.  He has lived in shadows for years within the Bastard Brotherhood when in truth he should be king.

The adventure and excitement of the battles,  bravery, betrayals, kept the pace of this book rolling along at a great clip, so it’s definitely a fast read.   A read which I derived great pleasure from reading, keeping the reader totally focused both on the simmering romance and excitement of battles and suspense.

DESTINED FOR A KING is the first book in the Bastard Brotherhood series which I am sure I will be following!
