Philomena is a child of the empire, traded to faraway Deusetats to seal an alliance and marry a prince: the handsome but arrogant Prince Rainhart.

However, politics is never simple. 

On the eve of Philomena's wedding, the king is brutally assassinated, his heir accused of treason, and Philomena's life thrown into chaos. Philomena and Rainhart flee the king's betrayers, trading the world of palaces and gowns for one of danger and fear.

Far from home and surrounded by people who want them dead, they must attempt to right a wrong that has angered even the old magic sleeping beneath the ground. 

They'll have to work together if they want to survive. 

But, they can barely stand each other, and Philomena has secrets of her own, that if discovered could cost the alliance, her position, and the person who has captured her heart.

It's a great start, I like the whole scene with the dog, it shows that no matter what awaits Rainhart he is playful as a child at heart!

Until I got to when you wrote, "slapped his thigh", I thought there was some serious sexism issues going on. :-P tired confusion.
