Nevan is a Prince from another kingdom, though Ashlyn, the Princess of Azure Valley, doesn't know it. Desiring to know what Ashlyn is really like, Nevan plays the part of a peasant to get close to her. While most people see only the ragged clothes he wears and the dirt on his face, Ashlyn sees much more than that. She sees right into his soul and sees him for how he truly is. Nevan soon forgets that he was acting and the real Nevan takes over as he begins falling head over heels inlove with her. Nevan, not wanting to ruin the love that is shared between Ashlyn and him, is afraid to tell her that he isn't really a peasant; however, what he doesn't realize is that she already knows.
