Bloodbound #1: The Bloodbound
When the king is betrayed and left to die at the hands of invading forces, Alix winds up saving him single-handedly. Now instead of a scout serving on the edges of the action, she is head of the king's personal guard, working to help him reclaim his crown while attempting to repel the relentless invaders. When both the king and a fellow scout lay claim to her heart, she may need to choose between the two.
