PRINCE NICHOLAUS, heir to the throne of Baramore, is less than eager to be responsible for commanding an entire kingdom. His father, King Locke, is anxious to retire the position to his only son, but knows well the pressures Nicholaus faces. Questioning his own leadership abilities, Nicholaus fears that his time upon the throne will come before he has found a companion who would rule Baramore alongside him.

Between the time it takes for his kingdom to win a battle across the valley, and to host a party that celebrates the victory, Nicholaus's fate changes forever when he chances a surprise encounter with a lady from another kingdom, Arianna of Kalamon. The only thing as unfamiliar to him as the new emotions he's embracing is how difficult it will be to court the daughter of a sworn enemy. When Princess Arianna is kidnapped, Nicholaus races against time and against Arianna's own brother, Prince Braden, to find her.
