Serena Cordeaux works for the Royal Protection Detail and is involved in the search for the Carramer heir. Evidence now suggests that the true ruler could be Garth Remy. In high school, Garth's cruel taunts and rejection of her prompted Serena to give up modeling and join the police academy. She's now asked to find Garth and deliver him to the palace. In Valarie Parv's OPERATION: MONARCH (2) chemistry between characters is slow to develop. The plot suggests they are romantically unsuitable, and they only begin to understand each other at the end.
