There are secrets hidden deep within the walls of Sagewick Castle.

Crown Princess Amarantha has an unusual pastime that she will do anything to keep hidden. She walks a fine line between breaking the law and acting like the perfect lady. If she is found out, her life is over.

Wanted criminal Daxton Grove is in the royal castle, tied down in a suitor's competition to win the princess' hand. He finds himself disguised in the only lifestyle he's ever wanted, on an undercover mission to find a magical potion. However, when the princess discovers his real identity, he must resort to desperate measures to avoid a life in the dungeons.

Amara and Dax both want nothing more than to return to their previous lives. But a murderer is on the loose, sabotaging the suitor competition, and time is running out. 

Innocent lives are at stake, magic is the tip of the iceberg, and death is lurking around every corner.

But love could be the most powerful force that could save or destroy them all.

I really like how you've started but I've noticed that you overuse the word "she." Sometimes you need to use her name, or a different phrase, like "the princess" or "the battered beauty" that last one sounds a bit odd.... but at least you can see my point.
"It did" would be used at the end of a sentence by the common people, not so much a lord. Sorry, I know corrections are annoying, but they help in the long-run :)

If she has to wear a corset, that could help support her bruised ribs....but if it's pulled too tight it could break them.
