"Sire, I don't understand your plans for me," Krystal pleaded. "Please send me home. After all, I'm only a mere peasant girl."
King Gregory stepped closer and lifted a strand of her hair in his hand. "I don't want you to ask me that again. And as for being a mere peasant girl, you are that no longer,"
"What do you mean?"
"I have the authority to name a princess of Avolonya, and I have. You are now that princess."
After running away from home, Krystal is transported to a faraway kingdom where an evil tyrant is bent on taking the crown—and Krystal's hand in marriage. But when she falls in love with the rightful heir to the throne, she must make an impossible choice: sacrifice her one chance at happiness and agree to marry King Gregory, or face the destruction of an entire kingdom.
