Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.
It’s a big deal.
When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.
What she isn’t…is married.
It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.
Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.
Even Queens. Especially them.
Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.
And a sacred promise keeps him there.
To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.
Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever.
Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.
This is theirs.

|Final Score - 5 Stars!|
I hate admitting to reading books out of order, especially when I'm a stickler for reading books in order, but i have to say - that's so not the case with this one! Knowing that the first books in the series have to do with Lenora's grandchildren make me happy I started here first!
I loved reading about Lenora's childhood and her romance - but more than that - it's the story of how she came to embrace her destiny as the future ruler of her country. I was utterly captivated by
her strength of character and purpose. I could not put this book down and read it one night! I can't wait to sink my teeth now into the other books in the series - as I now have some wiggle room between ARC's.
And lets not forget how romantic to was to read. I loved her friendships with Archie, Thomas and her eventual romance with Edward. Swoonworthy! The romance is between Lenora & Edward doesn't start off without a hitch, but its a quick one with no fallout except them falling in love. I loved this book. It's another win for Emma Chase.
