<p>In this four-book ebook bind-up of romantic, fairy-tale-like YA novels from bestselling author Jody Hedlund, three separate noblewomen—Rosemarie, Juliana, and Sabine—face difficult choices, dangers, and painful truths as they work to find a way to protect their futures. And as each meets one of the noblest knights in the land, they must also protect their hearts. This bind-up contains:</p><p><em>The Vow: </em>In this novella prequel to <em>An Uncertain Choice</em>, a young Lady Rosemarie finds herself developing her first romantic feelings, directed toward the son of a visiting noble couple. But just as the two begin to explore what their feelings toward each other may be, a terrible illness sweeps through the estate and leaves both of Rosemarie’s parents gravely ill. As Rosemarie begins taking over duties in the castle, she uncovers a vow her parents have kept secret … one that could change her life, and her romantic future, forever.</p><p><em>An Uncertain Choice</em>: On the cusp of her eighteenth birthday, the beautiful and wealthy Lady Rosemarie knows it is her destiny is to fulfill a vow made by her parents, one that dictates she enter a convent on her eighteenth birthday. But as she prepares to enter the religious life in one month, Lady Rosemarie receives the news that there is an exception to the Ancient Vow: if she finds true love and is married by her birthday, she is freed from the obligation to become a nun. At the urging of her godfather, she agrees to allow the three handsomest and noblest knights in the land the chance to win her heart in thirty days. But when the knights’ arrival results in a series of attacks within her land, she begins to wonder if the convent is the best place after all. If only one of the knights—the one who appears the most guilty—had not already captured her heart.</p><p><em>A Daring Sacrifice</em>: Juliana is the daughter of a lord, but the circumstances of her father’s death have forced her to live in the woods of Wessex disguised as a young man. There, she helps the poor, starving peasants around her survive while her cruel uncle rules the lands that are rightfully hers. When she is captured during one of her raids by a neighboring lord, her life complicates more: her captor is Collin, a boy she knew in her past life, and he immediately recognizes her as both a notorious bandit and his redheaded former friend. As her uncle closes in on her location, and the bounty on her head increases, Juliana takes refuge in Collin’s castle. But the longer she spends with Collin, the more she questions her past decisions—and the more her heart bends toward Collin’s charms.</p><p><em>For Love & Honor</em>: Long ago, Lady Sabine gave up the hope of marriage due to a skin blemish on her hands and arms that, if revealed, could cause her to be branded as a witch and place her in tremendous danger. And who would want to love a woman so flawed? Instead, she tells no one of her curse and devotes her life to finding beautiful art and relics, purchasing them with her inherited wealth. Unbeknownst to her, however, her current journey to Sir Bennet’s estate is not to purchase a new piece, but her grandmother’s attempt to marry her off. At the same time, Sir Bennet’s mother has asked him to wed Sabine in order to secure the monies needed to repay the family’s debts. As Sabine and Bennet get to know each other, they find they are more matched than either could have expected, but their dual secrets linger in the background—and both, if not revealed in time, could lead to not only heartbreak, but their demise.</p><p>Discussion questions for <em>An Uncertain Choice, A Daring Sacrifice, </em>and <em>For Love & Honor </em>are also included.</p>
