Chosen when a child, Lady Kathryn is trained to be a ruthless killer. She is destined to be the English king's assassin. Only he and the guild master know it. It's a secret that must be kept.

Upon her return to England a murderous plot against King Aldrich is discovered. Kathryn is shocked when he proposes marriage as a means for her to remain at his side at all times. An assassin has never married her king before! Agreeing for the sake of her oath to protect the ruler of the realm she becomes the Queen and his wife. What she doesn't realize until it's almost too late is that the traitor is much closer than she or the king ever imagine. Her fight for the king's life very quickly becomes a fight for her own when her secret is found out.

My new cover is a big thanks to @Marveler_!

Really confused because breeches would have been really baggy during the time that this was set, it's only recently that they've become tight
