"Clarise, a young and beautiful woman, is tired of watching her village be pillaged by bandits and thieves. She is tired of her people crying out helplessly with no one to protect them, not even the King. The towns people have told her that the King is too busy with worrying about fighting the French, rather than providing for or guarding his people from harm. There’s also talk of how he seduces one woman after the next, an ability that prevents him from keeping a wife. Clarise is not one for rumors and decides to embark on her own journey in which she can actually find out the truth about the Kings character and confront him of the poor governing of his people.
In order to travel to the Royal town safely, Clarise must hide from the traitors of the crown. In the middle of the night she hops into a wagon that has a destination heading to the royal palace. But someone is watching Clarise, the Spanish Prince Vaughn. When Prince Vaughn decides he isn’t going to tell anybody about Clarise and orders her to be released at his bed chambers instead, both characters in the story find out that it’s better to make love instead of making war.
