Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Selection series Kiera Cass is back with her most epic novel yet—a sweeping enemies-to-lovers standalone romance.

“Love has a sound. It sounds like a thousand heartbeats happening at the same time.”

Princess Annika has lived a life of comfort—but no amount of luxuries can change the fact that her life isn’t her own to control. The king, once her loving father, has gone cold, and Annika will soon be forced into a loveless marriage for political gain.

Miles away, small comforts are few and far between for Lennox. He has devoted his life to the Dahrainian army, hoping to one day help them reclaim the throne that was stolen from them. For Lennox, the idea of love is merely a distraction—nothing will stand in the way of fighting for his people.

But when love, against all odds, finds them both, they are bound by its call. They can’t possibly be together—but the irresistible thrum of a thousand heartbeats won’t let them stay apart. 

Kiera Cass brings her signature sparkling romance to this beautiful story of star-crossed lovers and long-held secrets.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“Wow!! This book was amazing, I loved it so so much!! The love story between these two characters, Annika and Lennox, was so heartwarming!! I mean, they met one time when they were kids, and they have loved each other ever since! This story was so cute, and I like how, in the end, we got a small glimpse of them in the future with their son!! They will be the best King and Queen!!”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“Another success from Kiera Cass, this was such a beautiful book. The characters were so emotional and the plot was perfect. I loved everything about this, my favorite character would have to be Lennox and Escalus. I loved the cave scenes and I don’t remember how many times I cried during this read-through. I can say it was pretty predictable what was going to happen, but honestly I don’t care lol. The tropes were beautifully played and there was just enough of a twist on things that it made this book interesting. There is so much good things I can say about this that I would need to write an essay.”
