fair King Henry has a problem. While he's young and dashing
and has all of Venice clamoring to appease him (in order
to obtain help from the French navy), the truth is, Henry
won't be happy until someone mistreats him. Fortunately,
he's smart enough to pick famed courtesan Veronica (who's
also an adept sword fighter, poet, politician, and God only
knows what else) for his one night stand.
the privacy of the bedchamber, Henry's ashamed of his needs
and afraid to admit them, but Veronica's quite experienced,
and very understanding of such quirks: That knife you see held
against Jake's ivory cheek is about to be put to good use! Next
morning, Henry has trouble sitting down...but he's got a smile
on his face. And Venice gets the ships it needs.
