Olivia Bennett, Princess of the magical Lightbearers, is an only child, and as a result, she's a woman with a great deal of expectation piled onto her delicate-yet-tough shoulders. She isn't particularly thrilled with the latest requirement of her station in the world, so, in a surprising act of rebellion, she leaves her family's magically protected home and heads off to Vegas to have some good old fashioned fun in a place where no one knows she's a princess--or that she isn't even human.
Of course she runs into trouble, of the potentially deadly kind.You see, Lightbearers carry magic that the shapeshifters want, and they believe the only way to gain said magic is to kill the person who currently possesses it. This is why Lightbearers have lived in their magically hidden coterie for the past 500 years, and absolutely why the princess, the only heir to the throne, should most definitely not have run off to live it up in Sin City.
Luckily for Olivia, Tanner Lyons isn't like the shapeshifters she's learned about in her studies. Seriously lucky, actually, because he ends up rescuing her from his own father, who planned to kill her for her magic. Tanner then vows to take her cross-country to return her safely to her secret home.
Assuming, of course, they can keep their hands off each other en route. Which is crazy since they're supposed to be arch enemies, not lovers...
