The King's Muse
Having lived in the murky darkness of the castle dungeons since the fall of her kingdom, prisoner Kanara finds out how difficult remaining hidden becomes when she is suddenly thrust into the light. When the son and heir of the traitor King is mysteriously presented with her after a call for entertainment, both of them get more than they bargained for.
When Eyre, the hawk-eyed heir of the cruel and sly King Baraco, finds out how well the hauntingly beautiful girl he is presented with can play the sacred instrument of their country, the connection is a strange and strained one between the two. If his memory serves correct, it would be wise for him to keep an eye on the girl whose eyes are as big as the secrets she holds.
With the remnants of her past life surrounding her, Kanara manages to keep (most of) her head about her while staying out of public knowledge as a Muse, a personal melody weaver for the Prince. In befriending a princess, her maid and a serving boy, she finds out more about the new traitor king and his plans for both of his children. With spies in every shadow, her presence becomes harder and harder to cover. With the help of the two children of the man she hates the most, the strength of her former self might just be able to come forward.
