Elsie Nichols is the Librarian of the Old Library of the palace of Brierwood, which is under the reign of King William Phillips. There is a love triangle, but will love ultimately win or will it be a catalyst of possible ruin and tragedy? Book 1 discusses the beginnings of such a story of our young librarian and where her heart goes, but there are two men who fight for her and neither gives up. Each have their values and why she should be with them. One uses the past to try and convince her to come to him, while the other reveals his own past and brings her to his side, but will she leave man number two like everyone else?
