King Toridesh goes to the extreme to ensure he's never betrayed again. Can Issalia prevent the fate that awaits her or will she become the next . . . dead queen? Betrayed by his first wife, King Toridesh gives his new brides no chance to deceive him. After he marries a virgin of his choosing and consummates the marriage, he has them killed. As an only child, Issalia has been sheltered by her parents in an attempt to shield her from their king's murderous intent. When her mother falls ill, Issalia refuses to allow their market-stall to be closed for the day, knowing this one day of income stands between them and poverty. While in disguise, the king spies the lovely Issalia in the marketplace and takes her as his next bride. Will Issalia succumb to the fate of the virgin brides before her, or will she be able to break the king's curse?
