Shirley G. Martinabout this book: Imagine a young girl taken as hostage to ensure peace between two warring countries. This is what happens to Princess Allegra when she is ten. Years later, at the age of nineteen, danger threatens her, and she is taken to yet another country, for her own safety. There, she is appointed a new guardian. The last thing she wants is someone telling her what she can or can't do. She vows that some day she will determine her own fate.
Appointed Allegra's guardian, Rowan is surprised to find that his ward is not some little girl, but a beautiful young woman. He struggles with his attraction for her, trying to concentrate on his position.
Too soon, danger threatens Allegra again. For her safety, Rowan takes her to a far distant land, a world beyond time and space. There, they can't deny their love for each other. Yet they realize they can't stay in this beautiful land, that duty calls them back. With the help of a friendly dragon, they return to Rowan's country.
While they have been away, an upheaval has occurred in Allegra's country, and a new king is on the throne. This king wants Allegra as his wife.
Allegra must choose between the good of her country and the desires of her heart. Which choice will she make?
As with my other fantasy romances, "Allegra's Dream" was fun to write. I wondered what life would be like for a young girl of royal blood who has no say in her fate. I wanted to present a strong heroine who refuses to let events rule her life.
