Anything worth taking seriously is worth making fun of.
All her life, Emily has had one dream–to be a wife and mother. Unfortunately, her father has other plans for her future- to never let her marry at all (he’s afraid of her dying in childbirth as her mother did). But when her father crosses one of the most powerful men in England, King Henry II decides the best way to keep peace is to hand her over as a political hostage to Draven, Earl of Ravenswood. Knowing this is her only chance to catch a husband, she immediately sets her cap for the most eligible bachelor in Christendom.
