About Allegiance - Goodreads, Amazon, B&N, IndieboundAN EIGHTEEN-YEAR-OLD QUEEN IN LOVE WITH THE ENEMY AS THEIR COUNTRIES PASS THE POINT OF NO RETURN…Bound to a man she cannot love, Queen Alera of Hytanica must forget Narian, the young man who holds her heart. For Narian is destined to conquer Hytanica at the behest of his master, the powerful magic-user known as the Overlord. Alera doesn’t truly believe Narian will fight against Hytanica—until Cokyrian troops attack with Narian commanding the charge.Faced with the greatest betrayal a heart can know, Alera must set aside personal feelings and lead her kingdom through its darkest time. And when all hope, will and courage seem lost, she must find strength and remember that even the blackest night must have a dawn….
As you can guess, the love triangle between Lord Narian and King Steldor is a huge part of the plot of this series. So today on the blog I will be featuring Lady Alera, the main character from the Legacy series talking all about who she thinks deserve's to own her heart.(Whether or not I agree with whoever it is *Humph*) lol.
My husband, King Steldor, is arrogant, stubborn, and hot-tempered, but he is also intelligent, brave, firm in his beliefs, and staunchly loyal to his family, his friends, and to our Kingdom of Hytanica. It is these latter traits that make him a good King; it is the former traits that make him a less than perfect match for me. While I cannot deny that there are sparks between us at times, I do not love him, and don’t believe I ever will. The saddest part of all of this is that he sincerely loves me, in his own way. But he wishes to dominate and control me, and I will never be happy as an oppressed woman; nor will Steldor be happy loving a woman who does not love him in return. He deserves the chance to experience reciprocated love, as do I.
When I am with Lord Narian, my heart and mind are free. He encourages me to speak my thoughts – thoughts that Hytanican men would view as inappropriate for a woman. While he and Steldor have many characteristics in common (their quick minds, courage, and sense of duty), and under different circumstances might even be friends, what distinguishes the men is the way they view me. Narian sees me as a human being, not just as a potential wife. He values my ideas over my ability to manage a household and bear children. He respects me, and believes that to try to dominate me would be to take away what is most sacred about me – my spirit, a spirit that he helped me to discover in the first place.
While Steldor does not wish to make me unhappy, he does. He tries to orchestrate my life, whilst Narian merely wants to experience it at my side. Both are honorable men, but only one sees me for who I truly am, and believes I should embrace that person.
~~~Thank you for joining us Lady Alera! It seems as though your mind and heart are already made up so I wish you good luck on your relationship with darling Narian...I do hope Steldor get's let down quietly though...he is such a sweet boy deep down on the inside...
