Years before, he was anointed future king of Israel. Now if the sitting king learns of his secret, it will mean death for David and everyone in his family. David's secret destiny becomes more complicated when he falls in love with King Saul's daughter, Michal. He will do whatever it takes to secure her heart, provided she doesn't find out that David is the rumored rival to her father's throne.
Now that Michal is of age, the Queen determines her daughter must be married as soon as possible. Michal resigns herself to a pre-arranged marriage with a man she does not love. Then by fate or God's providence she meets the handsome, young lyre player standing outside her father's chambers.
One lives in a palace; the other sleeps under the stars. Though they come from vastly different worlds, Michal and David are drawn together. When King Saul uncovers David's secret and vows to kill him, Michal is torn between her love for her father and feelings for David. Two kings, two men she deeply loves but for different reasons — one heart broken in two.

The Secret Heir starts with David as a young man and shepherd. Even though he is a shepherd he has already been anointed to be the next king of Israel. The book shows how he is called before King Saul to play his lyre and sing. This isn't about all the exploits of the Bible but about a young man who falls in love with a king's daughter while a lowly shepherd. The characters and the era are well researched, the characters will draw you in and keep you immersed in the story. While a work of fiction the story stays true to the Bible with a little fiction thrown in to keep the story moving. This is the first book I've read by this author and I'm impressed by her insights of David and his life, the characters were likable, even King Saul at his worse was shown in a way you could be sympathetic. I received this book from the author and no one asked me to leave this review. All opinions are my own and I can truly say I enjoyed this book immensely. I'm looking forward to reading more by this incredible author.
