When called out to a disturbance, PC Merlin Emrys does not expect to find a dead body and a madman waving a bloody sword at him. He also does not expect the sudden promotion, or to jeopardise said promotion by trying to prove the madman’s innocence. He definitely does not expect to find himself falling in love with the madman, one Arthur Pendragon.
