But she knows him and what he will do if he discovers her true name. Made to fight for her life to earn her place, she vows to find a way to break the curse no matter the cost. To. The. Death. The words describing the tournament turn Prince Alexandre Durand’s blood to ice. The last warrior standing will win a spot at his side. As he's thrust onto the throne, forbidden magic, dangerous betrayals, and a complicated love could tear his reign apart. When the secrets begin to unravel, will Alex stay true to the laws and traditions of Gaule or will he give it all up for a woman who deceived him? Inspired by the Rapunzel story, this is the golden-haired princess as you’ve never seen her before.

High-Action Rapunzel Retelling
In this Rapunzel retelling, Ms. Lynn takes the childhood damsel in distress you know and love and turns her into a strong protagonist you’ll be rooting for from the start. In this version, Etta has a magical ability she’s unable to use since magic is illegal. On top of that, her life is bound to the life of another—the handsome prince Alex who just happens to be the son of the man who destroyed her family. To protect her own life she must defend his as well. In Lynn’s masterful hands, the relationship between the two grows and evolves, and you will find yourself turning page after page to find out whether Etta will ultimately succeed in her mission. The only bad news is, you’ll need to wait until book two (and three!) to find out, so you should probably queue them up on your Kindle in advance.
Highly recommend to anyone who loves a fast-paced, tightly-plotted action story with a kick-ass heroine.
