Evie is no stranger to obligation. When you're born a princess, your every day is an obligation. Evie has grown up fulfilling requirements, being constantly watched, and becoming almost numb to the idea that people see her as a possession rather than a person.
Her current task, however, involves more than simply putting on a dress and a smile and attending an event. Now she is obligated to pick a husband, and her choices aren't fabulous. She is going to have to marry within a few years, but how do you decide between terrible options? Especially with everyone watching. Evie finds herself hating her royal status more than ever and can't help being drawn to the mysterious man who offers a taste of the forbidden.
(Sequel to Keira's Fire, Daughter of the Rebellion, The General's Daughter, and The Princess Bride)
