When Prince Edward of Calais receives a note implicating his wife in an affair, he is furious. He’s only been married to Annette for three weeks, but she distanced herself from him almost as soon as they returned from their honeymoon.
Annette woke up disoriented, not knowing who she was or what happened to her. To make matters worse, someone shot her aunt and might be after her as well. Her relationship with Prince Edward seemed strained at best. After receiving a couple of threatening notes, she doesn’t know who she can trust.
She knows she is drawn to Edward—they clearly have chemistry—but he keeps her at arm’s distance. He is definitely hiding something.
Edward and Annette can’t fight the pull they have to each other, but Edward has to decide if he can forgive Annette, and she has to determine if she can trust him. In a world where everything is not as it seems, will love prevail or will their marriage go down in a ball of flames?
