Wrath. Lust. Envy. Avarice... What's your Sinful Secret?

After surviving an attempt on her life that left her with little memory of her former life, Naiara finds herself in the safe arms of the kingdom of Voltaire. Several months after regaining her strength it is discovered that the Voltarian Princess has vanished! In an attempt to salvage strained relations with the imposing kingdom of Irenous, who had been promised the vanished princess, Naiara finds herself blackmailed into posing as the missing princess. She will have to fool entire countries if she is to be accepted amongst the nobility and take her place as queen of Irenous. She has few allies to help her through this deceitful endeavor, but with their help she could very well become the princess she is forced to become.

As she struggles with learning the ways of the nobility, the chance for forbidden romance blooms even as danger looms around every corner. Naiara's tormentor is still out there waiting for the right time to finish his most secret of sins. Everyone has a secret, but who's sin will match hers?
