"Mother, what would happen if someone of royal blood were to fall in love with... A servant?"
"My dear, the punishment would be death."
Princess Juliette has always hated slavery. How could somebody strip another person of their human rights, then force them to do things they could easily do themselves? Ever since she was a young girl, she has refused to own a slave of her own.
Her world is shaken when her father introduces yet another new slave to the family, Emmet. But this slave is different from the others. Juliette quickly finds herself attracted to his quiet ways, his looks, his smile. As she experiences true love for the first time, she is heart broken that she could never be with someone of such low rank.
Emmet, who has never been fond of the royal family, easily finds something special in Juliette too. She is the first person to ever treat him for what he is, a human. Not to mention the way she's sweet to everybody she meets, her soft voice, and her crystal blue eyes. But of course, a princess would never find love in a slave.
Will things ever work out for the princess and her slave?
