Note: This is the same King Takes a Bride, but with a new cover.
Chey's ability to handle diplomatic situations is put to the test by an unexpected visitor to the shores of Latvala. When the visitor makes a startling revelation, it throws the Ahtissari family into a tailspin. Chey learns that holding grudges and abandoning her nemesis in a time of crisis isn't as easy as it seems, while a sequence of events regarding the King and his bloodline threaten to rip the country apart.
In an effort to ease the tension, Chey offers to sacrifice the one thing she's wanted all along: her wedding to the King.
