Sometimes choosing between love and family means choosing between life and death.
Aston Smith, Knight of Fridel, has been sent on a dangerous mission: catch The Rogue Royal, a notorious man who has been killing corrupt monarchs. When the mission goes wrong, the knight is sentenced to death. To escape his fate, he runs, planning to track down the murderer and clear his name.
Along the way, he meets and teams up with Jade du Halen, who he thinks is just another woman. Secretly, she is the runaway princess of Adion who denied her duties as a princess and refused to marry the man her father had chosen for her. Instead, she convinces Aston that she can clear his name, joining him on his hunt for justice.
Can these two individuals hide from their hunters, catch The Rogue Royal, and live happily ever after? Or will Jade’s secret tear them apart?
In a story told from the perspectives of five individuals, lives are changed forever, reputations are destroyed, love is found and lost, and betrayal is never far behind.
His wrists were rubbed raw, his shoulders sore from the strain of being held above his head. Aston pulled at his restraints one last time before giving up. His wounded shoulder ached at its awkward angle, but he supposed it was fitting. Prisoners weren’t meant to be comfortable.
How many men had he put in this same predicament? How many times had King Donn told him a man was guilty and then watched as Aston brought the man down?
How many of those men had been innocent, like him?
Aston cursed under his breath. He was terrified. The knight tilted his head back, his eyes travelling to a hole in the roof no bigger than a rabbit. The full moon above him allowed the dungeon some light, saving Aston from being immersed in darkness. It also allowed him a detailed view of his dungeon mate, a man who was no more than bones, chained across the room from him.
Is that to be my fate? To be left here, forgotten, until I completely disintegrate? He shivered at the image that passed through his mind. After all he’d been through, with all he’d found out, he still wasn’t ready to die.
