Product Description

“A richly woven talke of romance and intrigue laced with compelling characters, easy-to-hate villains, and deeds of derring-do.”
— Tristi Pinkston, author of Secret Sisters

At a time when royal infants are marked at birth, a royal advisor makes a terrible misstep — and an infant princess must be secreted away to save her life. Named Sarah by Miranda, the woman who agrees to raise the child as her own, the girl is unaware of her royal heritage — even though Miranda has done all she can to pair Sarah with the king's nephew, Lord Chad. But unexpected events prevent the expected betrothal.

Determined to fulfill her devoted mother's wishes, Sarah reserves her heart for Chad despite her growing affections for another man. But as plots against the crown unfold, someone accidentally discovers Sarah's mark of royalty — setting the stage for discoveries that will shake the kingdom to its core.

About the Authors

Jennifer K. Clark

JENNIFER K. CLARK grew up in the small mountain town of Monticello Utah where she is proud to say that she passed all of her English classes, and with fairly good grades too. At the time her writing aspirations didn't go much beyond turning in her next essay on time, however, she did have a passion for fictional tales and inherited her father's love of storytelling. Convincing neighborhood kids that their backyards lay over ancient ruins and stories to back it all up was part of daily routine. Made up languages, haunted houses, and tales of jungle adventures were also widely known among her friends. After graduating college, her interest in writing was sparked when she shared one of her made up stories with her sister, Stephonie Williams. Together they wrote their first novel, Mark of Royalty. Since then, Jennifer has fallen in love with the art of writing and has set out to learn the craft of combining the written word with storytelling. With veneration for the Renaissance time period, Jennifer loves to study history and attends festivals depicting that particular era whenever she can. She also finds the study of war strategies irresistible and enjoys reading about the great battles that have shaped history, using them as inspiration in creating the battle scenes in her own books. In her spare time she spends a lot of time with the animals on her farm and still takes time to spin yarns with her kids and other youth in her community.

This story is SO GOOD!

A babe born to fulfill a prophecy is given the royal birthmark...

Only to discover she is a daughter, not the son that she was suppose to be...

And when her twin brother is born right after her...

He is also given the royal birthmark and the daughter is whisked away to save her life.

The girl is raised by a woman who is determined to love her and give her all the advantages she might have had had she remained at the castle.

She gives her the name of Sarah, but her royal heritage is fully kept from all.

As time goes on Sarah has a chance to marry the king's nephew...but her heart is set on another.

"As plots against the crown unfold, someone accidentally discovers Sarah's secret mark of royalty—setting the stage for discoveries that will shake the kingdom to its core."

Sarah has a chance to run...

Will she take it~

OR will she be given the chance to fulfill the prophecy as she was born to do?

What would YOU do?

A FUN read!

This was a fun read. It seems to be meant for younger kids and teens, but I still enjoyed it. The hint of LDS theme was refreshing, but not over-whelming and all the loose ends were tied up nicely at the end. I would highly recommend this book for girls excited to read their first novels and families. Nicely done for a first novel.

I found this book very intriguing from the beginning. I was fascinated! The authors did a wonderful job of catching my attention and keeping it. It was a fast paced novel and it didn't drag. I loved the character development and enjoyed the sweet romance between Sarah and Alex. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes great writing style, complicated romance with a happy ending, a hint of political intrigue, and a wonderful message of divine nature.

Good read

I would classify it as a romantic-drama. The beginning was a tad bit slow, but by the middle of the book it becomes a page turner. I really liked the story. Teen and up would enjoy the book.
