Goodreads Synopsis:

Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.

In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.

Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soldiers to the border. Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.

To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.

Book Excerpt:
She just needed to say it as simply as possible so he understood. “I’ve pretended to be a boy my entire life. And now here I am, acting like a lady in love.” Her face flushed with the admission.
His features immediately softened. “I didn’t realize I was making you uncomfortable when I touched you.”
If another man acted the part—Knox, Harlan, or even Ackley—would she still feel this way? Or was it simply Gordon who sparked these emotions? And it wasn’t that he was making her uncomfortable. She almost wished he were. Every time he touched her, heat seared through her body. And she had no idea what to do with that knowledge.
“Since the moment I met you,” Gordon said, his low voice rumbling in the space between them, “you’ve adapted to any situation thrown at you. I assumed you could play whatever role we needed you to with ease.”
Reid blinked, not knowing how to respond. Maybe she just needed some time to get into character.
Placing his hands on her shoulders, Gordon forced her to look into his eyes. “I don’t want to make you uncomfortable, but we don’t have a lot of time and we need to pull this off.”
She nodded.
“You’re Duke Ellington’s daughter. You’re a strong, beautiful woman. Stand tall and hold your head high. I am your doting escort who is smitten with you.” 
She glanced away.
“Reid.”
Peering up into his eyes, she wasn’t sure she could pretend to be courting this handsome man before her. Why did he have to be so attractive? He was already engaged to someone else, and she had no desire to be attached to a man right now.
He reached up, cupping her face. “When I put my hands on your waist or place a kiss on your forehead, you will smile and pretend to enjoy it. I can’t have you jump and blow our cover.” Gordon’s thumbs moved over Reid’s cheeks, making her breath catch.
There was no way she could do this. Not with Gordon. If it were anyone else, she could pull it off. But not him.
“We need to be on our way,” he said, sliding his hands to her shoulders and squeezing them. “Ready?”
