With their children’s fate in the balance, Serenity and Sky agree to a two-year contract as a dual interaction in The Aquarium, re-introducing Serenity to the crowds as the Sea Star. But navigating the perils of this new Museum will be more dangerous than ever. The director has a reputation as the country’s most notorious assassin, her predatory brother has made Serenity his new favorite target, and the performances demanded of Sky and Serenity are simply unimaginable. When history starts to repeat itself—with female bodies showing up strangled this time—Serenity realizes there’s no one left to help her. But will saving herself cost her more than she can bear?

Serenity is trapped behind Temple walls, now a pawn in Force’s hands. His goal is to turn her into the face of his Temple, and he hires Luc to play the role of master artisan. Ultimately, Serenity is to become Yang, the bearer of her father’s dark Temple legacy—and the training for that once again involves the whip. This time, she must use it on Bliss, her twin—the Yin to Serenity’s Yang, though Bliss is nothing but a shell, one who only knows total submission to Force’s rules.
But Serenity has even bigger problems—Luc constantly pursues her, Force thrusts suitors in her path at every turn, and she must endure grandiose exhibit viewings. Most chillingly, a series of corpses with swan symbols carved into their chests keep randomly appearing, and she doesn’t know who is involved. Serenity needs Sky now more than ever. And he will be there to protect her—no matter what it takes.
In this action-packed third installment of the Uncaged Series, will Serenity manage to survive Force and all his machinations? Or will her father and the Temple finally be her breaking point?

Meanwhile, Bliss is still the Temple’s Yin. She’s a beautiful shell burdened by the ghosts of an abusive childhood—ones she believes she can never conquer. Yet, Bliss has no desire for a relationship with anyone, least of all the sister who escaped. But as the days pass, she finds herself growing closer to Serenity and Serafina despite her reluctance. With swan-carved corpses continuing to drop, Bliss realizes she is starting to act—and feel—more like a sister and less like Yin.
When Bliss and Serenity discover a dangerous secret that could destroy their family, they make an oath to keep it. To hide what they’ve uncovered, Serenity must play Yang to perfection and risk losing her heart forever—while Bliss faces her own greatest challenge of opening her heart and letting love inside.
In this mesmerizing conclusion, the Temple twins must unite in what becomes a test of their strength, their commitment, and ultimately…their hearts.
