Can Victoria’s worst nightmare be her only protection?
Victoria is one of six daughters of the Duke of Segovia. Locked away in a medieval castle, she manages the ins and outs of her domineering father and five cooped-up sisters eager for adventure. When a mysterious assassin appears at the castle amid rumors of a threat against the throne, Victoria is thrown on the run as her older sister Bella disappears. But finding Bella is the least of her problems. After an alarming encounter with the enigmatic killer, The Hirado, a shady invitation to serve the Infanta at court brings her right into a trap. Victoria realizes there’s more to The Hirado’s behavior than meets the eye. She’ll have to rely on an eccentric prince, a trip to Venice, and quick wits to escape two bumbling thugs and a king who’s out to get her. Who knew that old book in her father’s library could be so important?
