Samuel Foster would be turning 18 in two weeks. He grew up in a fairly normal low case family home with his parents and two younger siblings. The thing out of the ordinary was he knew for as long as he could remember he would be getting married at 18 to a girl he never had met before due to a promise his family had made.
Lena Scarlet, Princess Scarlet was feared by many, respected and loved by everyone near her. Deadly as she was calm, her one annoyance in life was the arranged married he father decided upon before she was born. Being fiercely independent and trained to protect herself, she never felt the need for a relationship or marriage as she fully capable of taking care of all her needs.
However, a promise was a promise and whether either of them liked it or not, their parents were at least going to force them to live together before calling the wedding off.
Please give the book a chance. I'm not the greatest of synopsis writers, as I am sure some of you can tell and the book may be slow at first due to the setup and lead in. But I promise it will getting more interesting as it goes along.
Scene excerpt from the story:
"You didn't happen to think it was important to tell before now?! The princess was furious with the other woman.
"I.." She paused for a second to swallow,
"I never thought that it would come down to this. I promise though that they wouldn't do anything terrible."
"They said the same thing to my father.. but they were wrong. I don't trust anyone's word." The princess replied standing up. The more her anger rose, the darker her eyes got.
"You should just be fortunate that I am not my father. Do you know what he did when faced with a similar situation?" with no reply, she continued
"He killed almost all of them. You could say it was a massacre. Me, I won't got that far, but if anything happens to him, I will personally kill the person who touches him.
