A Clean Medieval Romance
(The Bitter Kingdoms Series Book 1)


A princess in disguise. A dangerous warrior. A hundred-year war.

They never know that their greatest love and greatest threat are one and the same.

Amid the ruins of endless war, Princess Marguerite of Asterias, Meg to those who love her, is determined to find a way to help her people. Unknown to her weary father and domineering brother, she secretly steals away from the castle to feed and clothe the hungry in her kingdom. She hopes desperately to find someone, some way to save her country.


And then she meets a stranger. 


Dark, dangerously handsome, a soldier in her father’s army, or at least that’s what he says. When she sees his extraordinary fighting skills, Meg can’t help but wonder. He’s far more than a mere foot soldier. Despite the mystery that enshrouds him and the ever-increasing danger of her kingdom falling into chaos as the enemy army prepares to attack, Meg cannot resist him.


Will undeniable attraction, secret rendezvous, and forbidden love stand in the way of their happily-ever-after?
