Summary (From the publisher):

"You will be important to many people," her mother tells fifteen-year-old Æthelflæd. This is obvious enough. She is King Alfred's eldest daughter, after all. But her royal blood makes her a target as well, vulnerable to those who would wish to hurt the king.

When her father pledges her to his ally, Ethelred of Mercia, suddenly Æthelflæd finds her freedom stunted by the presence of Red, a gruff new bodyguard assigned to protect her and deliver her to her new home. At first, she tests the limits of Red's control, and once even manages to escape his watchful eye. Her escape has grave consequences, and that is when she learns that Red has much more than protection to offer her. He begins teaching her how to battle like a man, giving her the training that will enable her to face the battles to come. And when enemies threaten the borderlands, Flæd turns first to her guardian, and at last to her own inner resources and battle skills to save her life and protect the lives of her men.
