Theodora was the Queen of Polis, a city-state that lost the war against the most powerful empire in the continent. She is sure that they'll execute her immediately but, somehow, she survives the meeting with the Emperor, and she finds herself... Married? Tossed in a new world without connections and allies, she has to either accept her fate or lose the chance to help her people once again. She soon finds out that her new husband knows more about her than she does herself, and that his purposes are often far from what she expects. A fallen queen that doesn't know how to be anything else. A handsome Duke who's the cause of her ruin. And their efforts to find some happiness in a marriage that's been forced on them. WARNING: there are contents not suitable for a sensitive audience. The smut scenes are half-censored at the beginning, but the amount and details will increase after a few dozen chapters (according to the Queen's mood .-. ) *** From the story: «You did it on purpose!

There isn't any other woman in my heart.» «And in your bed?» «Since I am the one coming to you, my bed is actually empty. There is no woman in it. At all times.» «You don't need a bed to have an illegal relationship.» «Duchess, are you suggesting something? Where do you want to...» *** Proofread by: Pascal_Hoareau I do not own the copyrights of the image used in the cover.

Far in the west lies an island, named Stoikia, an island full of greedy nobles, poverty, murder, witches and many more evils. But Jackson Fen, and his older brother, Borison Fen, are the only "sane" and "pure" people on that island. With the help of some outsiders, Jack's plan is to get off that island and escape to a nearby island to the east, named Chrylotine. The island was supposedly safer than any other in the area. He wanted to start a fresh new town or haven for the people of Stoikia, to take back what was theirs from the nobles, and prove Jack's worthiness of leadership.
