Upon arrival, he comes face to face with Mary, and learns his sister wishes them to marry.

Maggie MacLaren has lost almost everything. Discarded by her husband over her inability to bear him a child, she is sent back to her home with nothing but the deed to an unknown remote island, a feeble replacement for the dowry that originally accompanied her. King Phillipe de Potiers has also lost everything.

Planned weddings are rarely known to go well, and it seems the more the nuptials have riding on them, the more complicated things can get.

Nicolette Twistleton has dealt with being jilted by her betrothed the day before their wedding by attracting every male she can and then solidly cutting them down. With visions of travel in her head, she is certain she will find happiness and safety for her broken heart in adventure.

Caius and Kendall have been engaged to be married since they were children.  He is spoiled and selfish, and has a reputation as being a ladies’ man.
