The Rightful Heir
by Diana Sheridan
Arkon has loved the deposed King Dardwin from afar for the past six years. Determined to stand at Dardwin's side, he makes Dardwin a deal: He will defeat the usurper Morbain, but in return Dardwin needs to agree to take Arkon as his consort. Skeptical, Dardwin declares that first Arkon must prove himself with two other challenges. Then, perhaps, Dardwin will consider accepting Arkon's bold offer.
