About Trained by the Warrior
“He saved me from a despot. Now I’m his to claim.”
Rinae lives to support her mother and sister, but everything changes the night of her eighteenth birthday. A ruthless tyrant attempts to steal her innocence, only to be thwarted by Sir Cadyn, a warrior mage bent on revenge.
Fleeing the aftermath, their only option is to hide. With his mission failed, Cadyn turns to protecting the beautiful, young Rinae. His dominance tests her will. Her defiance tests his patience. At first they only share a cause, but the call to fight back sparks their passion. Rinae can’t resist his enticing power and firm discipline, while her need to be trained awakens Cadyn’s hunger for more than justice.
Discovering a strength she never knew she possessed, Rinae will sacrifice everything to save her family and free her people. However, Cadyn’s commitment to Rinae overwhelms his thirst for vengeance. Forced to decide between happiness and victory, their love could save an entire world – or doom it.
