He murdered everything in his path, including half of the men from her region. A disagreeable and murderous tyrant was not only hearsay, lady Beatrice Compton had seen it for herself. His reputation spoke for him and more. Yet to end his raid of her people and the death of many, her father was buying peace with a wedding. Her marriage to him. Tyrant was a word all too kind for a man who murdered his own siblings to be king, while his father lay on his death bed. Being the only child of Earl Compton, Beatrice was more than her people's only hope, she was their only answer to kill the tyrant crown prince before his father died and he became king. They trained her in secret to kill him and she hated him enough to pay attention to every last word. Otherwise, Crown Prince Hermann Wolfgang would consume them all.
