Book 1: Washed Under the Waves (March 6, 2018)
A hidden island. A prince in disguise…and a lady torn between love and duty.
Lady Tayte Bashan never desired the distinctive black hair that marks her as Undae royalty, but when her family perishes in a devastating tsunami, the burden of leadership falls upon her young shoulders. Even as she prepares her island for the prophesied prince, she fears the duty to marry him is truly meant for another.
Dispatched by the King to an island untouched by the outside world for centuries, Prince Geoffrey Athan D’Ambrose must lead its people to the ultimate truth. But how is he supposed to win the heart of Undae’s princess when the King sends him disguised as a tutor?
Betrayal stirs within Castle Bashan, a threat as deadly as the rising wave. Now Tayte and Athan must brave the maelstrom or watch as the entire island succumbs to treachery’s destructive tide.
Book 2: The Fire Starter (April 10, 2018)
A secluded island. A fiery princess…and a translator with a smoldering mission.
Princess Amaryllis Filippopoulos will not wed. The rightful heir, she will not succumb to her father’s absurd plot to marry her to an off-island prince and forfeit her rule. When a proxy wedding creates a sham of a marriage and battle erupts over the bride, will she sacrifice her purpose in order to save her island?
Prince Valryan Molan is sent by the King to translate the island's scrolls…and to marry its princess. The High Lord of Celosia may have handed Valaryn the key to his kingdom, but she’s as pliable as iron.
When strangers with illegal fire weapons threaten Celosia, Valryan and Amaryllis must face a combustible choice. Will the heat fuse them together or blow them apart?
Book 3: From the Frozen Depths (May 8, 2018)
An island at war. A determined commander…and a princess frozen in frustration.
Padar Lacer receives a chilly reception on the island of Dharani, home to a people solidified in their beliefs of caste and karma. Upon her arrival, Padar agrees to treat a dying soldier, but when she discovers it requires more than her medical training, can she do the unimaginable to save his life?
Jym Fountayn wants to stop the war at all costs, even using a foreign princess to further his cause. After all, he warned her from the beginning that he was no prince. But when Padar's talk of a King who melts icy hearts ignites the entire island, Jym begins to wish he was the chosen prince and not just a warrior destined to kill or be killed.
When hidden motives escalate the civil war, Jym and Padar must thaw the frozen thinking of generations to reunite the families of Dharani under the King of kings.

An imprisoned island. A desperate leader…and a prince gambling on faith.
Since her parents' courageous sacrifice, Kylie Laperouse leads a band of rebels in the underground tunnels of Karoo. She lives to free prisoners from the governor's systematic slavery and to protect them from the island's dragon.
Prince Mitchell Chifley Monroe eagerly embraces his mission to Karoo, but he'd rather forgo pursuing a princess. As he uncovers the island's secrets, he finds more than the penitentiary keeping its inhabitants cowering in the shadows.
When darkness deals a fatal hand, Kylie and Mitch must trounce the true enemy enslaving Karoo and play their final ace—shining the King's Light into generations blinded by fear.
