Four years ago, I was an eighteen-year-old girl with skills most men would kill for. I knew several languages, all different types of fighting styles, and two men in my life that taught me that and so much more.
I had no clue who my father and uncle really were, or at least what they really did for a living. That all changed when I met my now husband, Prince Zander, at a charity ball. My father was invited too, and then everything kind of fell into place after that.
Someone tried to kill Zander at the ball and I saved him because his guards were not quick enough. Then it turned out he asked me to be his personal bodyguard until we found the person behind it all.
It was your normal girl's fantasy, finding a prince and falling in love, but with some gory things like killers trying to get you, and finding out your father is actually an assassin for the government.
We finally worked together after everything was out in the open and caught the guy who was trying to kill the prince, killing him, but his son, who also helped his father, escaped.
The queen actually helped with the plan but it wasn't our original plan to kill him. He kind of did it himself. If it weren't for that, he would be locked in a dark cell somewhere for life.
It turned out the guy behind it all was a drunk assassin that was fired from his job, the same company my father worked for, he was also going after him and the prince because of jealousy.
My father stayed with our government and was also offered a job working for Zanders's government as well, so now he was doing both jobs. My uncle was once his handler but he had to replaced because his full-time job was with his now-wife Amber training our royal guard.
Zander and I got married three years ago and had the most amazing royal wedding a girl could ask for, it was so romantic. He was crowned king and I queen shortly after so his father and mother could take off on vacation and get some time off.
I found out I was pregnant a few weeks after the wedding and we ended up having a little girl, we named her Ava Marie, and she is a handful like her father but with my fighting spirit.
I found out I was pregnant again eight months ago, this time with a boy, and everything seemed to be going great in the kingdom, with our family, and with us.
Our life has been exciting, busy, and happy the past few years, it all seemed like the happy ever after you always hear about.... until a sealed red envelope was handed to me, addressed to me this time.
Not again... Not another letter... it was another threat... it must have come from Mark's son... The envelope was Mark's way of threatening Zander before... SHIT his son Alex was back and coming for vengeance.
I stared at the letter for a long time and rubbed my belly while sitting at the table, I couldn't open it for some reason, I just knew it was something bad.
