What if your kingdom was on the verge of destruction, and the only thing that you could do to stop it is by marrying an intolerant, rudimentary, blue-blooded man who has never been on your good side from birth? The king of Sedalia has passed away, bringing two kingdoms on the verge of war. Evelyn must marry Prince Ashton in order for him to take over the kingdom as the rightful heir. How will this arrangement work out, if at all? Will Evelyn succeed with all the duties of being Queen, nonetheless being the wife of a highnASS?
