There is nothing in life that eighteen year old Zara craves more than her freedom. Stolen from her home in Cadrebia at the age of eight, Zara has spent more years than she cared to admit as a slave to the Tankadesh courts. Her days are filled with protecting the princess, while she spends nights entertaining the king and his officials with her mastery of weapons. Any spare moment in between, she plots escape.
Yet her hopes for freedom come to a crashing halt when a stranger arrives bearing the mark of her assigned lifemate, and he threatens war if she isn’t turned over into his care. But a lifemate is not part of the plan. Her dreams, of choosing her own path and being the master of her own will, weaken as her Moon seeks to claim his Sun.
Is it possible that this stranger, with gentle blue eyes and a ready smile, didn’t come to be her new master? That there could be more to his tale?
Zara soon finds that neither her captivity nor her parents’ deaths were mere random attacks. And by returning to Cadrebia, she may have put the future of the royal line—and her Moon—in jeopardy. While Zara breathes in her first taste of freedom, her enemies move in, seeking to rob Cadrebia of its blessed prophecy.
To keep what she holds dear, Zara must rise above the pain and uncertainty to claim the lifemate assigned to her, or more than her freedom will be stolen this time.

SUN AND MOON was such an interesting story! I loved the settings and the descriptions of clothing. Desiree gave such beautiful details of the sun and moon emblems as well as Zara's clothing that I was awed by it all. I also liked the way Zara and Jaedon's relationship bloomed. There was quite a bit of action and tension that had me glued to the page. It was a bonus to have a little bit of mystery thrown in surrounding the action that left me feeling even more on edge for Zara's safety. Lastly, I LOVED the transformation Zara experiences over the course of the novel. I won't give details, but I was very touched by the message of how God loves and cares for us. One thing I will mention is there were quite a few kissing scenes then I usually prefer when reading, but nothing inappropriate. Though, I will confess that the ending, especially the last line, was perfect. Overall, a great read that I would recommend to Fantasy readers who like strong romance in their stories.
