TITLE: The Chestnut Maid
GENRE: YA Fantasy
When assassins murder his look-alike cousin by mistake and declare King Cornelius dead, the royal teen disguises himself to seek vengeance and reclaim his throne. When Anna-Maria, his nearly betrothed, crosses his path, he foolishly offers to smuggle the desperate girl across the Verdboyne border. Anna-Maria soon prefers ‘Neil the Fiddler’ to her uptight fiancé and Cornelius must choose between romance and revenge… for his crown is settling more firmly upon the usurper’s brow.
