    Summary

    She was young, he’d been right, and so small. She couldn’t have been much above five feet tall, and it certainly had been an odd sensation looking down at his new monarch. But there was a strength in her voice – a strength with a tremor, for sure, and a lot of fake confidence that anyone with any observational skills would see right through – but a strength that had surprised him, given her history. She hadn’t been completely cowed by Conroy, he thought a little triumphantly. There was a fire in her eyes, an eagerness to succeed, but a wariness. She couldn’t hide her fear, no matter how imperiously she looked at him, how high she held her chin.

    Or, the one where Lord Melbourne becomes Private Secretary to a twenty-two-year-old Queen Victoria sometime in 2017.

    Summary

    That night stands frozen in his memory, beautiful and horrifying all at once. He would never have stopped running, if that was what it had taken. He would have taken her to the country; to France, or America, or off the very edge of the earth to keep her safe. He would have stolen her from death, stolen her away from her crown and for himself, and he never would have forgiven his own selfishness.
