About the Book

Defying death takes a toll. Rowan and Julian never expected to survive, but now they are back from their ordeal changed in ways nobody could have imagined and reluctant to share their struggles—even with each other. Not that it matters anyway—personal trials have to take a backseat to duty. As they try to become the king and queen Vernanthia so desperately needs, they must grapple with their newfound powers, a new marriage and all the complications of falling madly in love with someone you barely know. The path of true love was never smoothly paved—but this is a minefield.

The epic love story of Rowan and Julian continues in this imaginative retelling of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo & Juliet. If you think you know how this story ends—think again!

There is sex on a couple of occasions, but there is very little description. The most described is some intense romance and intimate kissing. (including 2 male characters).

There is underage drinking but it is a period fantasy piece and this would have been acceptable and expected in that time period.
