With her enemies intent on ruining her, Josie needs all the friends she can get. Friends that include the captain of the guards, a man determined to find out about his past before he gives in to desire.
As the captain becomes more certain that magic stole the servants’ memories, some very powerful people also hear the whispers of magic and begin to wonder. With rivals from several quarters closing in on the truth, events are set in motion that could change the course of the kingdom, and see the palace servants and Josie lose everything.
The Secret Heart
Caroline Small is a fortune hunter, and she's found her prey of choice: the Earl of Bexley. But the more she schemes to entrap him, the more she risks trapping her own heart.
The Lover's Knot
When Julian Swann becomes the tenth Duke of Clive, he's surprised to learn that his predecessor--who supposedly died of a heart attack--actually committed suicide. But the secret of the last duke's death is more sinister than it first appears. His suicide note is a forgery. And the author, to Julian's horror, can only be Sophia Roe--his ex-fiancee.
The Orphan Pearl
Lady Lily Spark has been missing, presumed dead, for years. Now she’s back in England, and in possession of a secret that could change the course of history. And she has no intention of giving it—or herself—up to anyone.
The Young Blood
Sabine Banchory believes that an unhappy marriage has made her immune to rakes like the Earl of Kingston. Kingston is fairly certain that, with the right attentions, Sabine will fall into his bed and insist that she'd come up with the plan. It's a game of cat and mouse he's played before, interrupted by a terrible crime that changes the rules... for good.
Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.
By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.
