The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride, fast. Of the ten noble-born ladies brought to his castle as candidates, one is not as she seems. Avelina is a mere maidservant, standing in for her lord's daughter. Despite her best efforts, she and the Margrave are growing closer. But something evil is afoot in the castle.
What happens when a margrave realizes he's fallen in love with a servant?
The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride, fast. He invites ten noble-born ladies from around the country to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks, a time to test these ladies and reveal their true character.
Avelina is only responsible for two things: making sure her deception goes undetected and avoiding being selected as the margrave's bride. Since the latter seems unlikely, she concentrates on not getting caught. No one must know she is merely a maidservant, sent by the Earl of Plimmwald to stand in for his daughter, Dorothea.
Despite Avelina's best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she can't deny her own growing feelings. But something else is afoot in the castle. Something sinister that could have far worse-far deadlier-consequences. Will Avelina be able to stop the evil plot? And at what cost?
