Prince Rathian is the Commander of the Vanguard, fighting a war against Villious that he just wants to end, but dark forces are gathering that the Prince might not be able to stop alone. 

Stakel is forced to serve the Villious as one of the Queenís Consorts and he just wants to go home to the land he was stolen from. 

Rathianís army captures Stakel when he is left for dead by his own people.  When Rathian is taken to the prisoner, he feels an immediate connection to the strange captive.

Can Rathian and Stakel overcome being enemys to become something more?  Will Rathianís troops get in the way of their love?  Will the dark forces destroy the two before they even have a chance at happiness?

The Vanguard is an intriguing story of love, lust, and betrayal.  At first, I wasnít sure if I would like the back drop of The Vanguard, but T.A. Chase has created a world so rich in detail, it becomes a character in the story.  Mr. Chase has a way of making his characters come to life and they drag you into the story.  The Vanguard is no exception. 

My heart broke for Stakel and all he was forced to endure, but Rathian helps make up for some of the pain in Stakelís past.  Rathian is a wonderfully loyal and proud character and just the man for Stakel.  The passion and love these two share is beautiful.

Mr. Chase has such a way with characters and emotion that I am Joyfully Recommending The Vanguard and hope Mr. Chase might revisit the word of Rathian and Stakel.
