Aiyuki Eika. Aiyuki. "Love Snow". A fabricated last name with a real, burdened meaning. Shouldering this meaning is no mere feat for the illegitimate child of Satan himself. Then again, Satan never played by the rules, so why should she? Consequences be damned, she'll make her mark. Whether or not that is what she truly wants will be determined.
Imagine that on the night of your birthday, you get the news that you are the heir to the king. Pro: You are now royalty. Con: You were born out of wedlock and are a bastard child Pro: There are some very good-looking boys at the palace. Con: Society hates children born out of wedlock. This is exactly the case for Lady Aspen Ripley who got the news of her true parents the day she turned eighteen. The transition from the heir to a duchy to the heir to the throne is a very big one, and it is ten times more difficult when everyone is out to get you. Is there anyone she can truly trust to help her at court or will her naivete be her downfall?
