The fairy tale romance of The Virgin Queen continues. New Queen Joanna and her kind but brooding new husband, King Will, could be living happily ever after if he weren't so busy being king. Affairs of state have kept him from her table and her bed too long; she can’t even tell him the secret that she knows he most needs to hear. And when Joanna is abducted by a mysterious hooded stranger while distributing comfort to the poor, she wonders if she'll ever see her beloved Will again.
