Heart of Red, Blood of Blue
Gisela of Steinland was born without color. Behind her back, servants whisper that she is a moon child, a child of the devil. Albino. But as a royal daughter of King Arnold the Red, Gisela is still good for two things: forging marriage alliances and birthing children-sons, of course. If only Gisela did not look like a ghost, her father could have married her off years ago. Instead, her first betrothal started a ten-year-war he is determined to win at all costs, even if he has to bring her out of hiding to do it. Bloodless Kristoff, the savage Krongon commander to the north, does not care what Gisela is, only that she is Steinland's heir. His last kill. With her spilled blood, he can end his revenge on the Reds once and for all. Desperate, Gisela's father is forced into an alliance with a king he despises, and Gisela finds herself betrothed once again, this time to an old brute. Unwilling to be the sacrificial lamb, she goes on the run, throwing herself into a fight for her life, a battle between three kingdoms, and the deep longing to be loved. Can the girl who started the war find a way to end it?
