And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces. And thus does she come to be rescued by the knight-prince Marcello Falassi, who takes her back to his father's castle-- a castle Gabi has seen in ruins in another life.

"Running... the fence... the wolves. Voices. And deep, blue-green eyes. Cerulean blue. The color of the glistening Mediterranean Sea capturing the sun's reflection. Even as she remembered the horror, her heart calmed, imagning those pools of safety. And a face attached to those eyes. Angular. Strong. Rich words had rolled off his tongue: 'You're safe now, daughter of man.' Then all had faded, except those round, cerulean eyes. No other shade on her artist's palette captivated her like cerulean. And no other eyes captivated her at all"--P. [4] of cover.
