When the high kingdom’s princess comes to assess the prince, assassins of rival courtiers come to claim his life. One nearly succeeds in his mission. But with shadowy movements and charred skin like her own, Vala knows he is not like the rest.
As threats to the prince continue and questions about Vala’s life begin to rise, she faces a fear worse than fire or water, worse even than losing him. She fears finding out who she truly is.
Wishes don't come true.
I should know. If they did, my addict mom wouldn’t have left, and my dad wouldn't have lost his job. I wouldn't have moved cross-country to a creepy old house on an estate willed to me by some crazy great-aunt I never knew. It's not exactly the best way to start senior year, but life in Las Vegas is over, and change is exactly what I need.
When I meet the groundskeeper’s smart-mouthed grandson, I can tell by his gritty style that he’s the kind of change I probably should avoid. And when I ask him about my family’s past, his dark, mischievous eyes tell me more than his words. But it's not until I find the well and the headaches begin that I realize how much he's really hiding.
Maybe wishes do come true. With a price.
Smug. Irritating. Pain in the …
After high school, I was content with the idea of never seeing him again. But as his sister Merilyn’s best friend, it was bound to happen eventually. I just didn’t expect it to be at her wake, where, following a foolish, naive, and completely ridiculous incident, I’m prepared to return to my perfectly routine life and wash my hands of him forever. Again.
Unfortunately, Merilyn had other plans.
Even though she traveled the world, her final request is for Caleb and me to recreate our senior year bucket list and take her ashes along for one last adventure. All the foolish, naive, and—you guessed it—completely ridiculous memories return in an instant. He tormented me, teased me, kissed me like no one ever had, made me fall for him, and broke me like no one else ever would. Reliving it all might end with a crash worse than the first. Or maybe not.
Maybe the fall would never end.
As they pass through what is meant to kill all who draw near, a surge of magic emerges, bringing death to some and more power to others. In turn, The Divide is weakened, the fog dissolving enough to reveal what lies beyond, reigniting thoughts of war between sides. But the imminent collapse of The Divide isn’t the only thing concerning Vala and Xavyn. They discover what Vala needs the most is also what the Islain queen had been searching for—a feather. Not only could it help prevent war, it could restore Vala’s immortality despite all she has forgotten. Though there are others also searching, waiting for magic to return, prepared to risk it all for the same immortal goal.
After the harrowing battle against Herja, Vala and Xavyn find themselves in a new battle against time. The war between lands quickly approaches should The Divide fall, but even that concern must wait while they engage in a more dire conflict with Verdandi. She must be stopped before finding the final piece needed to end the world.
To stand any chance at defeating her, Vala and the others will have to add numbers to their charge, which includes negotiations with the incorrigible Volare king. In the midst of it all, Vala has to face her true identity. Though acceptance doesn’t always come easily, especially when it comes from within. For Vala, it also means accepting what happens after. If they stop Verdandi … If they prevent the war … If she reconnects with her pith … Will she have to say goodbye forever?
Love is also pretty far down on Mark Foster’s priority list. The closest thing he’s had to a relationship was two nights with a hottie tourist looking for an unforgettable vacation bang. But after he catches a gorgeous local spying on a public make-out session, his sour view of long-term turns a little sweet. He’ll even ignore the odd coincidences that follow her for a taste of the L word.
Falling for Mark’s charm would be easier than choosing a single item from a dessert menu, but Gia knows love’s never that simple.
When an anonymous Duplicity client hires her to target a Silhouette bride and groom, both sides of the business collide.
And Mark’s ties to the bride are the icing on the screwed up cake.

One simple persuasion can sever a life.
The moment Annisyn Kane slips her rake pick into the lock of a stranger's door, the straight life she's led the last few years is scratched out. In the past, the goal was never theft. It was to escape. From life. From death. To quiet the dreams that replayed an affliction she longed to forget. This night, though, was different. She was out of options.
The isolated house was supposed to be an easy target. In and out. No problems. But the simple job takes a twisted turn when Annisyn comes face to face with the only real love she ever had.
Five years ago, she could have persuaded Damian Mead to stay. She wasn't willing to be the end of his future, so she let him go. Before the emotions from their tangled past have a chance to spin between them, Annisyn discovers that their startling encounter is the least of the night's problems. There's someone else in the house, and the only thing on his mind is revenge.
