Summary: Ser Charles is a humble knight of the Kingdom of Lehnshire, ward of Durwyn Darkholme, and adopted brother of Lady Raven Darkholme. One fateful day he slays the dragon that has been terrorizing the kingdom and gains the attention of King Erik, the Black King. They begin a passionate love affair. Raven has always enjoyed an exceptionally close relationship with her brother. She conspires to marry King Erik in order to remain close to Charles, to give King Erik the Queen and heir he needs and to allow Charles and the King to continue their affair. Everyone finds themselves torn between love and loyalty.

Author Note: Thank you so much to karon_chan for the inspirational art work. It's truly amazing.

I took on quite a few things I don't usually do with this fic - a medieval setting, world building, writing in the first person. In the end, I truly enjoyed writing it. It spoke to me and led me where the characters needed to be.

So many thanks for Afrocurl for being my beta. We had some great conversations in the process. xoxo
