A princess runs away from an arranged marriage, unaware that she is being tracked.
Seventeen-year-old Lia has a duty to her kingdom as the princess of Morrighan. Right before her wedding (the result of an arranged marriage with a prince from a neighboring kingdom who she has never met), she convinces her maid to run away with her. They manage to hide their identities and find work in a harbor town, but Lia’s spurned betrothed won’t let her go that easily. He wished he had thought of a similar plan, so the intrigue of his runaway bride leads him to search her out. Unfortunately, he isn’t the only one searching for her. Will Lia’s heart be won by her prince or will she just end up with a kiss of deception?
