    Summary

    Five years after the death of his family and his disappearance from high society, the enigmatic Lord Percival de Rolo opens his home, Whitestone, to a handful of guests. Among them is Lady Vex’ahlia of Syngorn, an impetuous rebel determined to make a fortune for herself. Together, the intrepid pair begin to unearth the mysteries of the ancient castle - but there are some secrets that are not fit to be known, and Vex cannot help but wonder at the true motivations of her sinister host...

    Summary

    Upon arriving back in Whitestone, Fredrick calls his third child to his side and says gravely, "My son, while I was gone I made arrangements for you to be married."

    Percival, who was raised in nobility and has always quietly feared this exact thing his entire life, sets his jaw and nods obediently. "Yes, Father," he says, and then holes himself up in his workshop to drink.

    Upon arriving back in Syngorn, Sildor calls the girl child to his side and says gravely, "My daughter, while I was gone I made arrangements for you to be married."

    Vex'ahlia throws a chair through a window.

    Or, the one where the Briarwoods never took over Whitestone, Thordak never destroyed Byroden, and two asshole nobles make a snap decision over whiskey. Percival struggles with his chronic emotional constipation and works on his tan, Vex'ahlia commits arson and sighs a lot, the de Rolo siblings win the award for Tal'Dorei's Least Helpful Peanut Gallery, and, eventually, there's a wedding. If they can all survive each other long enough to get to it.

    Summary

    "I go where my feet take me," she offers with a shrug, somewhere between a reason and an excuse. "And apparently my feet wanted me to be cold." They both glance down to her toes, bright red against the snow since she still hasn't replaced her shoes. She's worn thick calluses into them, her heels now as rough as any boot, but the cold in her feet is an afterthought to Percy's smile and the glint in his eyes.

    "Well, dear" he says, and offers her his elbow, "let us go warm them then, yes?" By the gods, she didn't realize it, but she's missed him.

    "Do lets," she agrees, and takes his arm in hers.

    Or, the one where Vex wanders, Percy waits, the both of them want, and the both of them make mistakes. The romance of two broken people, told over the span of a lifetime, and in four seasons.
