There's never a dull moment for Princess Ria! With a father like Caitel, any situation can be flipped upside down in the blink of an eye. Playing with Perdel's sons? Fun, but not when a broken statue makes for a sulky emperor! Setting Elene up with the guy she's crushing on? Cute-except Caitel mistakes Ria's intentions and orders to have him killed! But at the root of it all seems to be Caitel's affection for his daughter, which Ria now knows she can put her faith in...Until a familiar face shows up at court and proclaims to have mothered a legitimate heir to the throne!
