A member of the Dark Court, Vancia has spent her life among humans—together but separate, hiding in plain sight. Now Pappa says it’s time to put her glamour to use against the unsuspecting humans and, worse, agree to an arranged political marriage with a guy she’s never even met.

After the sudden death of her parents, Vancia felt lucky to have been taken in by family friend Davis Hart, who is not only generous to her, he’s a powerful Senate committee chairman.

Now, five years later, she’s settled into her new life, splitting her time between their homes in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, Georgia, where she goes to school. She’d like to feel like a regular high school student, but there’s nothing regular about their world. Her busy adoptive father is always travelling, and he’s secretive, spending a great deal of time with a shadowy organization he calls The Council.

When he tells Vancia about a political marriage he arranged for her years ago, she reluctantly agrees. After all, she owes her “Pappa,” and he deserves her loyalty. Besides, she gets the distinct feeling that his request isn’t actually a choice. And there may be even more to her mysterious groom and their impending marriage than he’s letting on.

THE SWAY is a companion novella to The Hidden Saga, a Young Adult fantasy romance series that begins in the backwoods of rural Mississippi and ends up affecting the entire world. Book 1, HIDDEN DEEP, was selected as a 2013 finalist in the prestigious RWA Golden Heart contest and took first place in the 2012 Maggie Awards for Young Adult Romance Writing.

Meet Vancia, enter the mysterious world of the Dark Court, and Give in to the Glamour of the Hidden Saga.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE SWAY:
“I could not put this book down. The story-line held me entranced in an elven world, hiding in plain sight among mortals, seeking domination while a greater mystery unfolded. I was flipping through the pages faster than ever in dire need to find out what happens next in the female protagonist's life and if she will ever find a back bone to defy her overly obstinate, adoptive father's plans for her life. The cliff hanger at the end drove me somewhat insane, but it is an exemplary novella for the YA audience that I HIGHLY recommend. On a side note, I am still overly desperate to learn the grand scheme of things behind the conspiracy theory. I will be reading the other books. I HAVE to read the other books.” Paranormal Trance Reviews

The evil of the Ancient Court is spreading... 


Macy Moreno has been through hell. She only survived because the guy she loved—Nicolo Buonaccorsi—sacrificed his own life to save her. Though she’s discovered there’s much more to the world than she ever imagined, as far as Macy is concerned, all its magic died with him. She’s alive, but her heart will never recover.


Macy goes back on the road, trying to outrun her painful past and the haunting memories of the love she’s lost-- and trying to forget that the end of mankind is quickly approaching. If only Nic had survived. If only there were something she could do to stop the coming Plague. But she’s only human—as far as she knows.


The only bright spot in her life comes from an unexpected source—a traveling companion she didn’t want but can’t seem to get rid of. And just when she thinks she might find some semblance of happiness in her new life, everything changes again, and she’s caught in an emotional tug-of-war between her past and the present. 


Give in to the Glamour once more as a new villain arises, a new love emerges, and a new hope for the survival of humankind comes from the most unlikely of places. Download your copy of Hidden Magic today! 


***Fans of high-stakes urban fantasy like the Mortal Instruments and deeply romantic paranormal romance sagas like Twilight will be drawn to the excitement and suspense of Amy Patrick’s sexy, magical Hidden Saga.***

Author's note-- The Ancient Court trilogy is a subset within the Hidden Saga. It is set in the same world and features many of the characters Hidden fans know and love from the previous books as well as introducing new characters from the mysterious Ancient Court in Europe. If you've read the earlier Hidden Saga books, you'll be entranced by the continuing story. If you haven't, then HIDDEN GAME is the perfect point to jump into the Hidden world, and you won't be lost or confused by the storyline. Then the magic continues in HIDDEN MAGIC, and the subset trilogy wraps up this fall with HIDDEN HERO.

As a royal in the Ancient Court, Nic’s life is planned out for him. Those plans do NOT include falling in love with a human…

18-year-old Macy Moreno meant to spend a few months backpacking around Europe. Instead, she’s ended up in an ancient castle belonging to international soccer sensation Nicolo Buonaccorsi.
Macy thought it might be fun to meet a celebrity—especially one as hot as Nicolo, but things at Nic’s house are a bit… strange. For one thing, she’s only one of many girls there, and all the others seem to be under some sort of spell. And while their exotic “hosts” are generous and intensely beautiful, they’re also a little terrifying. They keep promising the girls they’ll get to meet the handsome and wealthy sports star—but they don’t deliver.
Macy is done with the whole bizarre situation and ready to hit the road again. But her life takes a thrilling and startling turn when she catches the eye of the mysterious and alluring Nicolo-- and learns the truth about him and the Ancient Court's Hidden Game... 

Romantic and gripping, Hidden Game will transport fans of urban fantasy and paranormal romance to a fascinating world within our own, filled with suspense, danger, and desire. Readers captivated by Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga will devour Hidden Game.
