Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king's army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince's guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can't prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.

The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she's sworn to protect?

In the kingdom of Antion, peace has at long last been restored. Now that King Hector’s reign of terror is over, the newly crowned King Damian, along with his most trusted guard, Alexa, must focus on rebuilding Antion and reclaiming the hope of their people. But the wounds of the past are no as easily mended as Alexa and Damian had hoped. And to further complicate matters, Alexa still harbors a secret love for Damian, a love she refuses to acknowledge for the sake of Antion, and for the sake of the king himself.

When new threats to the kingdom surface—including an assassination attempt on Damian—blame is cast on the once-friendly nation of Blevon. Alexa knows things are not what they seem, however, and once again the fate of her country hangs in the balance. Will Alexa be able to protect her king and find the true enemy before it’s too late?


Filled with romance and treachery, magic and violence, this stunning sequel to Defy whisks readers off on another thrilling adventure.

Hi Sarah, I'm a mom from Mesa AZ and just wanted you to know that I've loved reading Defy! However, I have stopped half way through...because there is nothing worse than finding a great book and then realizing the next installment doesn't come out for another year...okay 11 months! That's almost, but not quite, as bad as cleaning a public restroom!! Soooo! I am going to put forth my best stubborn self and wait to read them all at the same time!!! I'm just telling you this because I only do this with books that I really, Really enjoy!! So, I, in my own round-about,l "could've said in a few words", and grammatically disfunctional way...am telling you that you did an Awesome job!!! Your family should be very proud of you!! Don't give up writing!!

I loved your books! They are so well written and full of action! I read them both in three days! I couldn't put them down! Im going crazy knowing that I have to wait for the next one but know its going to be just as good, if not better than the first two! You are a talented writer and hope you continue to write!

Oh my goodness! I just finished reading Defy and was literally crying! I had no idea what to do next... Then I found out there was a 2nd book to Defy. You don't know how happy I was! xD I kept screaming and running around.. Can't wait to get it. I loved Defy, couldn't even put the book down for one second haha.

I went crazy after reading Defy! The book series was so good, when i realized that I was getting close to the end of Defy, I begged my mom to let me buy Ignite on my nook! I was so excited when she said that I could, that knowing Ignite was already on my nook, I read faster, and so the moment after I finished reading Defy, I picked up my nook and started to read Ignite! I was so excited to find out what happened to Alexa that I had the book read in two days! I wish there was already a third book, though... You should keep writing these kinds of books. I hope that there is a third book as much as my friends hope that I will let them use my nook to read Ignite! But like I stated a minute ago, I HAVE to find out what happens to Alexa, and I NEED to find out what happens to Rylan and if he's okay.

I am a HUGE fan of your Defy series. I listened to the first two books in the series on audio book and I just saw that you released the final book in the trilogy. I have been waiting patiently (or trying to) for the three book to come out on audio book. Do you know what the release date for that will be? I can't find ANYTHING about it online. HELP PLEASE! Many thanks from a loving fan!

I'm also waiting for the audiobook. I would love to know when it will be out.

Hi, I just read your book and I really liked it. However, it was so irritating when the main character would not admit she was in love with Prince Damion.

My friend recommended your books when we visited the library. I was caught off-guard by the amazing warrior quality of your lead female. Amazing series! It inspires me.
