In ancient Britannia, the warrior who brought down the king stag was named the defender of the land. Eartha’s brother Balen has been in love with Princess Galiene since they were children. Upon the death of the High King, the tribesmen of the realm vie for the throne, and with it, the hand of the princess.
Balen is desperate to win his lady, but a rival tribesman is equally determined to keep them apart. With her brother, her dearest friend, and the country she loves hanging in the balance, Eartha must do the unthinkable to ensure her brother’s victory in the stag hunt. Sometimes true love needs a helping hand…or for blood to be spilled.
