Prince Djohn-Kronos has violently murdered his father, taken the throne, nullified all existing royal betrothals, and started a war. But he has no intentions of stopping there. He is determined to marry Princess Helispeta, whom the deceased Emperor promised to Djohn-Kronos's twin brother, Prince Devoron-Vitan.
Emperor Djohn-Kronos let Helispeta believe him to be Devoron-Vitan during their hologram visits. He even forbid her grandfather from informing her. But he never forbid her grandfather from sending word to Prince Devoron-Vitan.
Helispeta did not find out until far too late that her husband is the emperor. Her new husband is as cruel as Devoron-Vitan is not. Helispeta has no intension of playing meek and accepting her lot in life. She is determined to flee Emperor Djohn-Kronos and be with Devoron-Vitan ... even though it is treason.
*****This is an incredible tale! I hope that the author will someday adapt it into a full length novel. It is about 10,000 words, an estimated 23 pages. If you love fantasy romance, as I do, then I strongly urge you to click the link and purchase this tale from the publisher. It is not expensive and you will NOT be disappointed. I have no doubt that after reading this you will look up Rowena Cherry's other books. They are all this good!*****
