Now that everyone knew I was a girl, most of the other guards treated me differently--they seemed to think that I was suddenly weaker than I used to be, even though I hadn't changed. I was still the same person--the same soldier--I'd always been.

I wouldn't be the one found relaxing on the job, allowing something, or someone, to get past me. My life was devoted to protecting my king.
  But the expression on Damian's face wouldn't leave me, the pain he was so adept at hiding from everyone--everyone but me. I, who knew him best and had hurt him the worst.
  What if the person he needed protection from the most was me?
