Since her father's assassination five years ago, Jeanne de Reynar has been the Empress-Elect of the Starsdenn Empire. She lives an easy life of politics, luxury, and semi-regular visits from her best friend-with-benefits. Save for the occasional attempt on her life, she has no complaints.

But when the attempted poisonings and failed muggings and other deadly methods become more common, the Council forces her to take on a group of bodyguards (for her own safety, of course). At first Jeanne is against the idea, until she meets one guard: Alveara. Never one to fall for princes and lords, Jeanne is smitten with the tall, stoic guard from the very beginning.

Life in the palace takes a turn. Beyond assassins, rising political tension, and Jeanne's own conflicted heart, there's something more sinister bubbling just beneath the surface. When Jeanne loses it all, the real work begins.

How are you supposed to build an Empire in a day?
