Summary

Lady Lalaine of Ellington vowed never to marry because of a tragic event from her past. Being cautious, she had never allowed herself to love. She had realized two truths: a married woman could lose her life for any reason, and if she did lose her life, she would also lose love.

Prince Hadrian promised himself he would never be king. Knowing the ancient laws, he knew he had to be married, or at least engaged by eighteen years of age to fully receive his title. He had managed for several years to keep the ladies of court at arm's length, but no more.

Lalaine's parents, the Duke and Duchess of Ellington, and the King and Queeen had had enough of seeing their children shirk the responsibility of the the ancient court tradition of marriage. Deciding to take action, they set up Hadrian and Lalaine at a ball. Upon discovering their prearranged courtship, Hadrian and Lalaine concoct a plan to get out of the courtship.

Will the plan succeed? Or will Hadrian and Lalaine fall in love and into the trap they set?
