Love as thou wilt. The first precept of Blessed Elua, and it is the one by which all D'Angelines live their lives.

However, no one knows how difficult it is to follow, when one is a member of House Courcel.

Or the son of a traitor.

I watch her swirl across the dance floor. She is masked, like everyone else here, but I know her. If those violet Courcel eyes did not give her away, then her bright, lively laugh would.

Elua knows, I love her. But no love could survive between a Prince and a Princess of the Blood.
