Ballad of Discord
If the man you love won’t trust you with the truth, how can you ever again trust him?
The pieces of Elizbeth McKinley’s world scatter when her father, in an act of pure madness, joins forces with a mysterious Frenchman in an attempt to claim the Scottish crown. Now, pawns in a game far vaster than they can imagine, Elizbeth and her sister must flee or be shipped off to France to wed strangers. To make matters worse, the one man who should most wish to help her, the man Elizbeth loves, refuses to believe she’s in danger. His betrayal will cut deeper than any sword.
