    Summary

    Prince Stiles of Cor has always known, somewhere in the back of his mind, that he was never truly going to marry for love. Fighting it has only made it worse. Now, presented with a choice between two children of the Hale family of Ignis, Derek and Cora, he must make the decision to determine who will rule by his side. If only it were that simple.

    “Tell me,” he says, taking a drink. “If your sister does accept me as her husband, would you be pleased for her fortune or yours?”

    Derek sets down the pitcher and moves further into the room, removing his vest and setting it over a chair. “I don’t believe that’s a fair question. If she finds happiness in your kingdom, by your side, of course I’ll be pleased for her.”

    “And relieved, I imagine.”

    Derek turns, arms crossed over his chest. “Would you be?”

    Summary

    Stiles is under no illusions when he is sent west: perhaps his marriage will end up a love match, but his duty is to secure the treaty between his people and the kingdom of Francia. Yet from his very first encounter with his arrogant husband Derek, Stiles realises that doing his duty will be a far more difficult and perilous thing than he ever imagined.

    Summary

    “Who … who am I to wed?”

    A small flash of guilt covered the king’s features before he was able to recover. “Your union will join the royal families—joining our family to the Hales.”

    Dread and sorrow sunk in Stiles’ stomach as he closed his eyes.

    There was only one Hale left unharmed by the great fire that nearly wiped out the entire royal family—the Dread Wolf of Triskelia, Crowned King Derek Hale.

    Summary

    Due to the destruction of House Hale and the debts incurred in their survival and search for justice, the King (blah blah, make believe world) arranges a marriage between Derek and Stiles, eliminating all debts the Hales may owe. Derek is very unhappy. Stiles is pretty shocked at who he's being matched with, but he's certainly not unhappy. It's pretty clear from the start Derek doesn't share that feeling.

    Stiles passes the time by hunting with his falcon, Derek broods. Until...

    (These stories are only connected in the fact that the tropes are borrowed from old-school bodice rippers. They're stand-alone.)
