I’ve decided to change things up a bit. Beginning this week I will blog “The Marriage Bed” one scene at a time until it’s finished. This will be a first draft, so there may be rough patches, but I hope you enjoy the story.
At a time when kings and queens still ruled and political power was won by force, there were two small monarchies carved out of history. Trying to save their countries from annihilation during the wars between Catholics and Protestants, the two Kings conspired to join their two houses.
Prince Nicklaus Dietrich is the royal heir to the throne of Trier-Inkeln and was to be wed to the eldest daughter of King Hans Stolz until she becomes ill and dies days before the wedding. The Kings only other daughter is a cloistered nun who is preparing for her final vows. I have been charged with retrieving Princess Hannalore/Sister Agnes from the convent and preparing her to be wed to Prince Nicklaus. God help me.
