In This Kingdom by the Sea by Icy Blackstone
Arcanis was a world set in its ways, until nine-year-old Darien-Marcus san Gene became margrave. Raised by the advising council made up of his father’s best, he’s given a mistress at age 12, a wife when he’s 13, and develops a tremendous desire to rebel all on his own. When His Majesty reaches 19, the orphaned prince declares his independence... and there’s nothing those stuffy, old-fashioned advisors can do about it.
With the aid of his wife, his best friend, and his younger brother, Darien begins the not-so-subtle and sometimes shocking changes to his world. Against the background of the love story of a teenage groom and his child bride and their growth into passionate adults, there’s also the tale of a society in transition because its ruler considers it both constricting and out of date…and he’s having a great time doing it!
