The hero and heroine are strong minded people with a desire to reach their goals, goals that the other individual obstruct from achieving. The heroine is the leader of her castle, a rarity in the world of men. She wants to keep it that way since she watched how her mother suffered under her father, plus the men who kept raiding her castle after his death. It’s why she doesn’t want to get married and is lucky enough to have a fiancée who disappeared in the crusade a decade ago. However, her King has offered her home and hand to the hero as a reward for his bravery in battle. This is a huge thing for the hero who is son of a traitor; a title he suffered gravely since he was a young boy. His own noble friends turned against him and his knightly mentor tortured him till his brother-in-law rescued him. Now, he has a chance to gain it back by getting the heroine to marry him.

In truth, it’s actually her cousin playing the fiancée as one of her hairbrained schemes.
