If the King is fated to love thirteen women before he turns fifty, is he still husband material? One cold, snowy Wintertide Eve, Queen Geneva of Foresta tracks her straying spouse in an attempt to discover where exactly he goes at night. Has he met his next great love already? Will he put her and their three children aside?
As Geneva labors over the solution to her husband’s curse, King Reginald is attempting to discover a solution for a problem of his own--and for the entire Middle Kingdoms.
