Aston Smith, Knight of Fridel, was on the run.
On the wrong end of a failed mission, Prince Talbot panics and blames everything on Aston, the only other person with him the night everything goes wrong.
Now, Aston is a traitor to the country. After being sentenced to death over the failed mission, Aston leaves Fridel in search of the one person he thinks can make everything right: The Rogue Royal.
A murderer killing shady monarchs and lords, The Rogue Royal is the most wanted fugitive among the kingdoms. Aston vows to hunt him down to clear his own name.
In a chance meeting with Aston in a forest outside Fridel, Princess Jade du Halen assigns Aston as her own personal bodyguard, with or without his consent. Jade is running from her father, unwilling to marry the annoyingly charming but childish man he has chosen for her.
A knight running from death, a prince hiding the truth, a murderer killing whoever steps in his way, and a princess who refuses her duty. Four lives are hopelessly tangled. Who can survive, and who will fall?
