The Thirteenth House by Sharon Shinn

Description: Declared heir to House Danalustrous, one of the Twelve Great Houses in politically troubled Gillengaria, Casserah must make a summer circuit of social gatherings and balls hosted by each house in turn. With Danalustrous arming for war, however, she refuses, feeling that her place is with her people. So her shape-shifter sister, Kirra, goes instead, disguised as Casserah, to scout out Casserah's potential suitors and discern which houses are aligned with the king. In Ghosenhall, Kirra is surprised to find some warriors and mystics she considers friends and with whom she bands to protect beautiful, quiet young Princess Amalie as she, too, makes the circuit. En route, Kirra begins an affair with Amalie's regent, Lord Romar, and that puts the whole party in great danger. Attacks on the princess, Romar, and others begin; innocent people start dying; and the question arises, who is so serious about controlling the throne? One of the Thirteenth House underlords? Lethra, the mystic-hating head of a group of religious extremists? Or someone much closer?
