2 Works by tears_of_nienna in Captive Prince - C. S. Pacat
When Prince Laurent of Vere is forced to attend a masquerade ball in his brother's place, he has no idea that his dance partner is also his bitterest enemy. Furious and betrayed (and not at all haunted by their kiss), Laurent spends the ensuing week avoiding Damianos--not an easy prospect when you're confined to the same palace. But there's a greater danger looming. Will they be able to put aside their differences long enough to find the culprit?

20 Nov 2018
The war with Akielos has settled into an uneasy alliance, and Prince Damianos is sent to spend a year at Arles. Seven years later, he returns to Vere to offer condolences to King Auguste on the death of his father. But Auguste’s younger brother is much changed, as is the political climate in Vere, and Prince Laurent is the target of an assassin. When Damen returns to Akielos, an unexpected guest is sent with him—but danger follows, and the fate of two kingdoms hangs in the balance.
What might have changed if Auguste lived—and what was inevitable, even so.
