Once upon a time, Leander decided to kidnap a sorceress. It didn't go to plan.
[Wattpad Picks: Editors' Choice]
Leander just wanted to forget the army now he'd left it behind him, but war had dogged the country for the past thirty years and forgetting was nigh impossible, especially when it looked unlikely to finish any time soon. Pretty, clever and vivacious, Miss Harper was surely the perfect distraction. If only she would give him the time of day...
Unfortunately Miss Harper only had eyes for her big promotion (in whatever that job of hers was) and Leander didn't feature in her plans. All she was interested in was magic, something nobody took seriously, and the fate of the nation. Drunk and desperate, he made one final, wild attempt to be noticed by her.
Magic, it transpired, was a little more serious than Leander had bargained for. If he thought he'd escaped the war, he was sorely mistaken: it was exactly where Lissy Harper was heading, and now she was taking him with her.
Nothing was more dangerous than a sorceress when you'd got on her bad side.
This is a complete (admittedly rough around the edges) story, updated on request/whim.
