Orphaned at a young age, Amelia Cicely Florence, the first lady ruler in the history of the Empire of Creador, was but seventeen years old.
Upon her first appearance at the Gathering, some nobles and aristocrats questioned her capabilities and the role of women in society--that was to assist her husband, be his pillar of support, and make sure that their family lives for the next generation.
But Amelia thought differently.
She's not for breeding, and definitely not for show. She is the rightful duchess of House Florence--maybe more, but absolutely nothing less.
Then entered Duke Alexander Clement, the man with a promise to support her and let her be what she wanted to do with her life.
His conditions? Her happiness.
Or is it?
