Something evil is gathering power in the kingdom. It knows the secrets in your heart, and nobody is safe….
Petra Kel – young and headstrong – has been named General of the Queen’s Guard. But while Petra’s head may be in rebuilding the war-torn kingdom alongside her childhood friend Queen Belengaria, she left her heart miles away in their homeland the day she turned her back on the only man she ever loved and fled.
But then Petra’s past – in the form of Bel’s roguish brother Zander – comes crashing in, just as rumors of dark magic begin to swirl at court. Petra can’t afford to be distracted…but the unfinished business between herself and Zander is like a vice upon her heart.
When evil takes hold of the kingdom and threatens Bel, Petra is forced to make the impossible choice between love and loyalty. And will the insidious magic of the Stone’s Heart reveal the heartbreaking reason why she left Zander behind all those years ago?
