The day I learned of my arranged marriage to the Prince of Vires, I decided to kill him.
Nothing could compare to the horror of being sold to a man I didn't know, forced into a consummation ceremony in front of the royal council, and becoming a prisoner in my own castle.
I was wrong.
At sixteen years old, I didn't want to be married to anyone, least of all the young but cold Prince of Vires. Despite the kingdom of Besmium's vulnerability without our alliance, I hatched the perfect plan to stop the marriage I never asked for--I decided to kill him. But when I got what I wanted and the wedding was canceled, I realized there were worse things than being married to Prince Young. Things like my kingdom being under attack and another prince vying for my hand.
Now my only hope is the man I tried to kill. But with the enemy circling Besmium like a hawk, it may be too late. Now I'm faced with an impossible choice--my kingdom...or my heart.
Besmium has been reduced to rubble, and sinister Camelot reigns supreme.
Abandoned by Minseo, brother of the fallen king, widowed Charlotte's path is perilous. New to life beyond her walls, she's forced to face the winter and motherhood alone, while being hunted by a soldier whose life's goal depends on her capture.
When whispers reach Minseo that Queen Charlotte survived, he decides to leave his drunken shame behind and seek his lost love. He knows finding her won't be terribly difficult but protecting both her and daughter Morgana is a different errand—one requiring more than time's power to heal.
Beyond the landscape of lies and treachery, Charlotte will need to navigate her feelings wisely. Can Minseo be trusted with the ultimate secret? Wherever young Morgana goes, a trail of ash is left behind, in consequence of something sought by sorcerers and mortal fiends...united, closing in.
