Even as others feast around her, Lady Liliana is in no mood to celebrate the peace made between her father and his greatest rival, for this accord was sealed with a contract for her hand in marriage—her opinion on the matter notwithstanding. Almost before she knows it, Liliana finds herself the reluctant bride of Lord Andrew, the son of her family’s oldest and bitterest foe.
To Liliana’s surprise, though he is fierce in battle, Andrew is no bloodthirsty savage, and in fact his schooling and cleverness are a match for her own. Educated as he may be, however, Liliana soon learns the hard way that Andrew is more than willing to bare her bottom and chastise her firmly if she forgets her duty to honor and obey him.
After a brutal and cowardly attack on both of their families, Liliana and Andrew have no choice but to act together if they are to survive and save their people from a ruinous war. Can a strong and lasting love emerge from the chaos, or will their marriage and their realm be torn apart by conflict?
