His Forbidden Touch by Shelly Thacker

Chased by assassins, a princess and her bodyguard must reach her royal wedding...and resist a forbidden love. Disgraced ex-knight Royce Saint-Michel was banished from his homeland because of an impulsive act that cost him all he held dear. Now, he has the chance to reclaim his birthright--if he agrees to escort the lovely Princess Ciara across a war-torn land to her royal wedding. The two set off alone through snowy mountain passes, but forbidden desire soon proves even more dangerous than the assassins on their trail. With the fate of two kingdoms hanging in the balance, will Royce and Ciara do as honor and duty demand...or surrender to the longing in their hearts? "Highly recommended.
