*Sequel to The Lady Knight* As the heiress presumptive of Monrique's largest duchy and a Lady Justice in training, Lady Therese De Beauharnais of Roche has her hands full with her duties, studies, and of course - fending off all her suitors who seem to be only after her money and her body. However, as her father, the Duke of Roche, inches towards his death, and it becomes increasingly likely that she would succeed him without a husband by her side, she faces trouble from someone who does not want a woman to govern Roche in her own right. One of the Monriquan Armed Forces' best archers, Lady Katherine Harrington of Johanne is at the lowest point in her life. Desperate for a diversion, she is quick to accept a foreign Emperor's invitation to teach archery at his newly founded women's military academy. However, someone who does not want the initiative to succeed is determined to cause harm to the Emperor, and the students of the academy. Both women are no strangers to injustice. As they struggle with their circumstances, only one question remains on their mind - do truth and justice always prevail in the end?
