The Killer: With a blade at her throat how loyal would any wife remain, far less a princess bound by law to her man-child husband?
Content Warning: Dub-con, coercion
Royal Sins: With the one surviving heir a man-child married to a foreign princess, the royal line is in jeopardy. For the seventeen years it will take for a new heir to be born and take the throne, the old king and the princess regent walk a tightrope. One slip will bring war. In public, their honour must be above reproach. In private, duty will require sacrifices of honour, and of body.
