She's engaged. So is he. And according to the headlines, so are the mouths of their betrotheds. How far will he go for revenge?
Lady Zoey is the daughter of Duke Arden, only she's never met the man. So what right does he have to marry her off to some pompous, playboy prince?
Prince Aaron Condor is in love with Lady Emily Maine. But when King Henry and Duke Arden decide to mend fences, Aaron ends up engaged to newcomer Zoey.
Prince James Condor returns as Duke James Beaumont after being exiled five years ago. He's only back to propose to childhood sweetheart Emily Maine.
3 months later, Aaron and Emily are caught in a compromising photo together. James wants revenge, Zoey wants someone to tell her it's okay to give her fiance a second chance. When the jilted lovers meet on the streets of Caines and he proposes to her, Zoey learns that that person is not James Beaumont. She meets with James again anyway and ends up married to him. It was all a drunken mistake, but that doesn't make The King's Guard hunting them any less real.
He begs her to stay in Caines, promising to get it annulled, but she's not about to be left behind. Backed into a corner, he ends up taking her home. What the hell does he do with her? Nothing, that's what, because she's his brother's fiancee and the future crown princess. Her technically being his wife doesn't make that any less true
