A PRINCE fighting to save a princess
A SERJAH torn between duty and desire
A PRINCESS willing to sacrifice everything
A DECOY with nothing to lose
A WORLD about to be torn apart
After his father’s latest punishment, Grayson isn’t at his full strength. Trapped in Ryden and surrounded by enemies, he knows escaping with Mia will be more complicated than anticipated. Tyrell is determined to claim Mia for himself, and Henri’s plans for the rest of Eyrinthia are more horrific than Grayson ever imagined. Despite the increased danger, he and Mia must return to Mortise and warn Desfan of what’s coming—even though it may already be too late.
In Mortise, the palace is still reeling from the brutal attack that left many dead and even more wounded. Regardless of the chaos, Desfan is determined to continue with his coronation. As serjan, he hopes to bring stability to his country and solidify the peace with Devendra. But things in Eyrinthia are always complicated. When Prince Liam reveals they may be facing dangers from old enemies, Desfan will have to decide what kind of ruler he will be.
Devastating news from home has left Clare broken. Despite her heartache, she must once again be Serene’s decoy when a terrifying report sends the princess on an unexpected mission to Zennor. Left at the palace, Clare helps Desfan build trust with the elite in Mortise while guarding a treasonous secret. Because as her grief transforms into a burning desire for vengeance, she is finally ready to embrace a new role—rebel.
Eyrinthia is consumed by uncertainty. Duty. Desire. Sacrifice. Every rebellion has its cost.
Books in the Series
“Don’t you have somewhere to be?” Imara asked blithely. “A coronation, perhaps?”
“They can’t very well start without me. Besides, it’s not until this afternoon.” Desfan crossed the room and sat in the empty chair beside her bed. Bright sunlight poured through the open windows, and the crash of distant waves was punctuated by the cries of seabirds.
“Where is Karim?” she asked.
“In the other room.”
“How is he?”
Imara lifted one eyebrow. “Are those his words?”
A smile tugged at Desfan’s lips. “How did you know?”
“It sounds like something Karim would say.”
“True. But I promise, he’s all right.”
The bedroom door clicked faintly as Hanna left them alone.
Desfan’s heart suddenly beat a little faster, but he tried to hide that as he asked, “How are you feeling?”
“A little peckish. Hopefully Hanna’s gone for breakfast.”
His mouth quirked. “I meant your leg.”
“Oh, that.” She waved her hand. “It’s well on the mend. Barely hurts at all.”
“I doubt that.” His brow furrowed. “I’m sorry, Imara. I—”
“Please, spare us both. Unless you want to thank me again for saving your life, let’s not talk about last night.” She smoothed a hand over the quilt on her lap, suddenly intent on the colorful pattern.
It could have been his imagination, but her cheeks seemed to have a hint of color now. What part of last night was she thinking of? His pulse quickened as he thought of his favorite part.
He cleared his throat. “Has the physician been to see you since you woke?”
“Yes, he left just a few minutes ago. He’s been most attentive.” Her eyes narrowed on him. “Quite possibly too attentive. I’m sure there are others in more need of the royal physician’s expertise, but it seems he’s been under orders to check on me every half hour.”
He didn’t bother to feign an apology. “I needed to know you had the best care.”
Her eyes softened. “Thank you, Desfan. Truly. But my father won’t go to war over this.”
“That’s reassuring. But I had other motivations.”
Her breathing thinned.
His own lungs suddenly felt too tight as he waited for her to say something. Anything.
Her lips pursed. “You’re a good friend, Desfan.”
Fates. Her words seemed to draw a line in the sand, but the way she said his name . . .
He was far too tired to have this conversation. He didn’t even know how he wanted this conversation to go, so why did he feel a cut of disappointment that she’d merely called him a friend?
He was betrothed to Serene Demoi, not Imara Buhari. He had a duty to fulfill. An alliance to secure. He should not be looking at Imara’s lips, wishing he could kiss them again.
He needed to stop looking. Now.
He shifted in the chair. “Considering you saved my life, I owed you the best possible care.”
“I would tell you I won’t let you forget it,” Imara said, “but you keep bringing it up, so I can’t very well be the one to remind you.”
“I will never forget.” The taste of fear had been sharp on his tongue, had knotted his insides when he saw that knife plunge into her leg. The bleeding alone could have been fatal, but just knowing the agony she’d endured—was still suffering—pierced him deeply. She’d come back to help him. She had refused to leave him behind, and she’d paid dearly for that choice.
Imara reached out and touched the back of his hand. “You have enough to worry about, Desfan. Don’t torture yourself over this.”
Her skin was soft. Warm. Darker than his, and completely mesmerizing. He stared at their hands, watching as her fingers slipped away.
He nearly gave into the urge to snatch them back.
