Marissa never expected to be kidnapped. She never expected to be shut in a cage, forced to travel across space and time to end up on a planet, paired up to an alien prince who doesn’t really want her.
Life was funny that way. However, even if she doesn’t want to work with Dakara, and she wants to find a way back to her planet, to the parents who miss her, and the language tutor helping her out with her eleventh language — she can’t. The prince trials are soon. If they fail together, they die together. So, for now, they need each other.
