    Summary

    Ten years ago, when the war between the seafaring kingdoms of Ismene and Alagona broke out, the most beloved second princess of House Bellerose vanished. Conspiracies about her disappearance flew fast and quick, but eventually the war took over, and the people forgot.

    Since then, the dread pirate Ghislain has been a menace on the high seas, slipping across battle lines and wreaking havoc on both sides. She'd been a free woman for so long that the barest taste of captivity sent her flying, her beloved ship and crew carrying her far from the gilded chains she was once trapped by. The war might be ending, but she had no intention of going home.

    Home, unfortunately, had other plans.

    Summary

    There will be peace between the great horde commanded by the khatun and the empire of Dao—if all goes according to plan. The westerners have brought gifts and tribute, and even a princess; and it's just Taban's luck, that she should be assigned to serve that princess as a bodyguard until the terms are all agreed and she may be delivered safely to the khatun. Taban's given her oath, and it's inconceivable that she would break it—it doesn't matter whether she likes this princess or not. Westerners are soft and useless, everyone knows it, and the princess will marry the khatun and stop being Taban's problem.

    (Except that isn't exactly what happens.)

    Summary

    “Traditionally, of course, the princess in question would have met with her suitors on arrival.” Mother pauses meaningfully to eye Gwendolyn. “The princess in question could still greet the remaining lords when they arrive.”

    “Could,” says Gwen with her mouth full. “Shan’t.”

    Summary

    This was the one thing that all agreed on, from the province council of which Father was a member on down to the most ignorant servant. The proclamation asked for the suitor whom each province felt best represented them. Whether or not Ghyslaine truly represented the province was immaterial, despite her rough hands from carving wood, the persistent smell from minding various livestock. For 'suitor', the proclamation meant a man.
