What if you fell in love with the one person you'd sworn to destroy? Lara has only one thought for her husband on their wedding day: I will bring your kingdom to its knees. A princess trained from childhood to be a lethal spy, Lara knows that the Bridge Kingdom represents both legendary evil - and legendary promise. The only route through a storm-ravaged world, the Bridge Kingdom controls all trade and travel between lands, allowing its ruler to enrich himself and deprive his enemies, including Lara's homeland. So when she is sent as a bride under the guise of fulfilling a treaty of peace, Lara is prepared to do whatever it takes to fracture the defenses of the impenetrable Bridge Kingdom. But as she infiltrates her new home - a lush paradise surrounded by tempest seas - and comes to know her new husband, Aren, Lara begins to question where the true evil resides. Around her, she sees a kingdom fighting for survival, and in Aren, a man fiercely protective of his people. As her mission drives her to deeper understanding of the fight to possess the bridge, Lara finds the simmering attraction between her and Aren impossible to ignore. Her goal nearly within reach, Lara will have to decide her own fate: Will she be the destroyer of a king or the savior of her people?

"Ugh, I'm really unsure whether to give it 3 or 4 stars. 3.5, probably. To be honest, 3/4 of the book was decent, although the characters are too naive if the author really wanted to present them as the warrior-king and the spy-princess. There's no way Aren would think Lara isn't a spy. Neither she would really believe her corrupted father was doing everything for the sake of his people. But, aside from that, the plot was interesting, the Brigde Kingdom descriptions were wholesome, and I really enjoyed the book. Until the last 1/4 of it. All I wanted to say was WHAAAAAT. Who let the book get published like this? Why everything started to happen crazy quickly? It felt like author was tired and just skipped a half of the book that was supposed to be written. The twist in the end of the story was weak. Not sure I wanna read the next book."
