After inheriting his title from his brother, the new margrave has two weeks to find a noble bride. What will happen when he learns he has fallen for a servant girl in disguise?
The Margrave of Thornbeck is under orders from the king to find a bride, fast. He invites ten noble born ladies who meet the kings approval to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks, a time to test the ladies and reveal their true character. But one of the guests is not who she pretends to be . . . and not everyone in attendance is there with good intentions.
A commoner, Avelina has only two instructions: keep her true identity a secret and make sure the margrave doesnt select her as his 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 Avelinas best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she cant deny her own growing feelings. But something else is afoot in the castle. Something sinister that could have far worseand far deadlierconsequences. Will there ever be a wedding at Thornbeck Castle?
