Two months have passed since Elizabeth left Crompton Palace to join her brother Gregory in exile. Now she’s two months wiser, two months tougher. But the runaway princess is no closer to finding her footing beyond the palace walls- and keeping her identity a secret is becoming harder every passing day. Fortune changes when Elizabeth meets Matthias, a pagan with a kind voice, a facial tattoo, and the most striking cerulean eyes she has ever seen. With Matthias as their escort, Elizabeth and Gregory find themselves far from Christendom in the heart of the dreaded Skuge Forest. Despite Balmoral’s pagan propensities, Elizabeth finds comfort in her new home- and her blossoming feelings for her rescuer. But when she learns of a prophecy that fates her to marry the village’s self-impressed chief, Elizabeth faces her biggest crossroads yet. Can she wed a man she can’t stand to secure her family’s place in their new home? Or will she risk the wrath of fate to give her heart to a man she’d walk across hot embers for…even if he’s cursed?
