Once Upon a Slave
In the kingdom of Carmonia, slaves and servants have very different roles. Slaves aren't paid, can't own property, can't speak unless spoken to, and even have to wear special bracelets that can only be cut off by their owners. 21 year old Will Hartlock knows the rules better than anyone. All his life he's been a slave to the rude, arrogant Prince Harris. He's never had anything worth fighting for.
That is, until Harris is betrothed to Princess Alexia of Seclusia.
Princess Alexia has no desire to wed the awful prince of Carmonia, but she must to keep peace between the two nations, and stop a looming war. Soon, she finds comfort in Will, a the prince's personal slave at the palace. But their midnight meetings soon turn to something more. If caught, war will erupt, Will would get punished (or worse), and everything would go down in flames.
Can Will and Alexia overcome the obstacles standing in the way of their love, or will hearts and kingdoms be shattered?
