Sheltered her entire life within the walls of the castle she was born to, Princess Marilla was destined to be nothing more than the wife of the next Emperor. She was finally fulfilling her destiny by marrying a nobleman her father had presented to her. She intended to obediently accept him on her wedding night, but he had other plans in motion.

A honeymoon is supposed to be filled with love and passion, not murder and betrayal, yet for Princess Marilla that’s all her wedding night offered. Now, with her husband having assassinated her father to ascend the throne, she finds herself a fugitive in her own kingdom. On the run with Hayden, her handsome childhood friend and the Emperor’s most trusted General, she discovers her feelings for Hayden run deep. Together, they find their strong feelings are more than just friendship. Through their journey, their love grows along with her knowledge of the Emperor’s corruption. Now, she intends to take her rightful place as Empress with The Bladed Tiger by her side.
