New York Times bestselling author Jo Beverley presents a romantic fairy tale in which one princess’s idea of happily-ever-after gets turned upside down…
A dragon has invaded Saragond! The time has come for Princess Rozlinda to be sacrificed. She is the designated SVP—the sacrificial virgin princess—and her chaste royal blood will appease the monster and prevent the destruction of the kingdom.
Not to worry! A dragon hasn’t eaten a princess in ages. It’s purely ceremonial now. Just a small cut and a little bit of blood, and Rozlinda will have done her duty. She’ll be free at last to cease being both “S” and “V,” and she has the man in mind.
But things don’t go quite to plan. Someone kills the dragon, and tradition says that the princess must marry the dragon slayer, whoever that may be. Even if it is the terrifying dragon rider of Dorn himself!
