Fate can be kind. She can also be a spiteful bitch.
That is something Connor Holden, earl of Featherstone, has discovered through firsthand experience. But if he thinks Fate's a witch...just wait. He's about to meet her sisters - Destiny and Luck.
They will make Fate's deeds look like child's play.
Just because time travel is possible does not mean time stands still. Connor doesn't care if it stands still or not. For him time no longer holds any meaning.
Much has happened in the five years since Reagan disappeared through the curtain of time, taking Cullen McKinnon with her in the hope of saving the young knight's life. The least of those events is Henry's awarding Connor the titles of duke of Featherstone and earl of Rockport. Upon Connor's request, the earldom was passed into his care to hold until the rightful heir could take possession. No one but Nic, Morgan, and he knew that the heir is Reagan O'Riley. He just has to keep the faith that she will eventually return.
Connor has always been a prime catch, but this latest news sends his stock soaring to new heights. The titles did not come without stipulation from the king. "You must marry, Connor, and make it soon. I, like you, have little patience these days." Henry is quite emphatic. Conjecture is rampant, and expectation is running high in the ranks of the nobility. All are anxiously awaiting the announcement. Who exactly is to become his duchess? Connor is running out of time. In this instance he prays time will stand still.
