Lions in the Garden
by Chelsea Luna
Release Date: March 1st 2016
Lyrical Press (Kensington)
Ludmila Novakova--Mila--has barely set foot outside Prague Castle in her seventeen years. But with the choice between braving the bandits and wolves of Bohemia's uneasy roads or being married off to a disgusting old baron, she's taken what she can carry and fled.
Escape won't be easy. Even Mila has heard the rumors of a rebellion coming against the court. The peasants are hungry. The king hasn't been seen in months. Mila's father, the High
Chancellor, is well known and well hated.
But Mila can't sit behind a stone wall and let fear force her into a life of silk gowns and certain misery. Her mother's death has taught her that much. She has one ally: Marc, the son of the
blacksmith. A commoner, a Protestant --and perhaps a traitor, too. But the farther she gets from the castle, the more lies she uncovers, unraveling everything she thought she knew. And the
harder it is to tell friend from enemy --and wrong from right . . .

Check out an excerpt from Lions in the Garden:
The beauty of Prague Castle—my home—filled me with an overwhelming sense of panic. I shivered, partly from fear of returning to the castle and partly because my thin cloak didn’t provide enough warmth from the night’s chill.
"You’re cold," Marc said.
He slipped his hand under my cloak and rubbed my bare arm. "You’re not fine. You’re freezing."
"We’re almost there. I won’t freeze."
Marc drew me to him until my back lay against his chest. I shivered again with the unexpected contact.
He wrapped his arms around my waist and leaned into me, using his large frame to shield my body from the whipping wind. I couldn’t stop myself—I nestled into him, seeking his warmth.
"That’s better," he whispered.
I was incredibly aware of how close we were and how much of our bodies touched. I’d never been this close to a man. My mind buzzed with activity. Was he as aware of me as I was of him? Or was I being silly?
