Crowns and Kingdoms: Bohemia: Book Four: Bohemia (Paperback)
The fourth book of Norris Bloom's Crowns and Kingdoms series follows Adela as she reluctantly agrees to travel with Aegis of Bohemia to his distant kingdom. Once there, she discovers that Bohemia is a poor nomadic kingdom with many unusual customs. Unable to refuse the crown, she becomes the queen of the gypsies, but struggles to solve the problems facing the Bohemian people. Far worse, gypsy code demands that she be married within a year. Adela's worst fears become reality when she realizes that her future lies solely in the hands of the drabarni--the wise couple of the kingdom.
