In a world where titles and money mean everything, marriages are arranged for financial gain, and those intended for each other may never meet until the engagement, Crown Prince Valdemar dares to befriend an impoverished farmer’s daughter just as his small nation of Brevalia undergoes a period of crime and unrest.
One of his closest friends is furious with his continued attentions toward Anika. Could he be the person behind the crimes or is someone else upset with the royals?
What will the leader of the land, Queen Marguerite, think of his fondness for a commoner? And what will become of the two foreign princesses the queen has brought to the castle as potential brides for the prince?
Will Prince Valdemar and Anika ever find a way to be together or will they be doomed to marriages of convenience?
