Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.
It’s a big deal.
When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.
What she isn’t…is married.
It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.
Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.
Even Queens. Especially them.
Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.
And a sacred promise keeps him there.
To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.
Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever.
Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.
This is theirs.

Lenora is thrust into a world where she wants to make a difference in a man’s world. She has to struggle with keeping true to herself and being good to her people. Of course this means you have to make conflict with people and I love seeing Lenora stick up for herself in a world that I can imagine is very difficult and I love how hard she fights for what she thinks is the best for her people.
Edward is a wild child who doesn’t want to be refrained. He loves his freedom and is not wanting to settle down any time soon. But when he meets Lenora, she sparks something in him that makes him start to see that maybe there is something more then the next adventure.
Lenora’s relationship with Edward is not necessarily one they both expected to happen. They get together as a favor for someone they mutual love but it quickly becomes something more for both of them. Edward learns that Lenora has a lot on her plate and he doesn’t like how hard it is for her. He is determined to show her that there is more to life then politics and that everyone deserves a fairy tale story.
I really love this series by Emma Chase and I love the way that she writes. She makes it feel like these characters are real and you are hoping for their happiness like you do with the real royal family. I really hope that this is not the end to the royal love stories that she has written. I need more of it.
