*Sequel to The Lady Knight, but can be read as a stand alone* Lady Therese De Beauharnais, Heiress Presumptive to the dukedom of Roche, is the epitome of perfection. With beauty, wits and wealth all embodied in one being, she is the most sought after bride in Monrique's marriage market - and the only bride who is insistent on rejecting all her suitors. However, as her father, the Duke of Roche, inches closer and closer to death, and it becomes increasingly likely she will succeed him without a husband by her side, she faces trouble from someone who does not wish to see a woman govern Roche in her own right. Lady Katherine Harrington, Archery Mistress of the Monriquan Armed Forces, is at the lowest point in her life. Desperate for a diversion, she accepts the request of a foreign Emperor to help him train his country's army of women who wish to defend their country. However, someone who does not wish to see the initiative succeed is determined to cause harm to both the Emperor and Lady Katherine. Both women are no strangers to injustice. As they struggle to handle their circumstances and triumph over their enemies, only one question remains on their minds - will truth always prevail in the end?
