It might be wicked, dangerous, and decadent, but Ankshara is Britta’s home. She’ll do anything to save it, even if that means marrying the son of one of the city’s conquerors. As heiress to the abbey that once ruled the city, it’s a burden she’ll gladly bear. At least, that’s what she thought before she met her groom-to-be.
Handsome but stern, Dux Lucius sees his upcoming marriage as a distraction him from his real purpose: cleaning the city of its criminal element. When his daughter is kidnapped, however, he’s forced to turn to Britta – the fiance he’d hoped to keep at arm’s length – for help.
Together, the pair set in motion a series of events that could save, or destroy Ankshara. Can the children of two ancient enemies find love in their arranged marriage, or will their differences tear Ankshara apart? Find out in this tale of romance, fantasy, and political intrigue!
