And then one of my students hit on me.
And the rest of the day was a complete mess. The beautifully single Mr. Drake McCain found
me in my classroom, feeling sorry for myself.
And not sixty seconds later he had me laughing and electricity racing
through my blood.
My family is broken and complicated. I literally don’t know my biological father’s
name. My mother is absent and my half-brother
barely knows who she is. But Drake? He’s not complicated. He’s sweet and kind and insanely adorable,
and comes from a wonderful family. He is
everything I want.
The chemistry between us?
It’s there in spades. I keep
telling myself that I should be feeling really awful and depressed since I just
got dumped a few days ago. But I keep
getting this ridiculous smile on my face every time Drake is around and it’s
kind of hard to keep telling myself that.
I’m Kaylee Ray. I
believe in fairytales and happily ever after’s, and maybe the search for Prince
Charming is over.
Cue reality check.

Alivia toyed with King Cyrus’ heart—and now, he’s going to make her pay. Perhaps with her life.
Hidden in the belly of the castle, truths will come to light, and the surface of the King’s brutality and the horrors of the castle have barely been scratched.
Prepare to be judged…
Uncontrollable bloodlust and an ever-shifting world rule her nights now. These twisted politics are deadly enough, but now her heart is the newest battleground. There’s no hiding from the one who hates everything she was born to, a spy who embraces everything she’s become, and a King who vies for someone she may soon remember.
The games have begun. The House of Conrath is growing. Blood will be shed, the bodies will fall. Alliances will be tested and old enemies look like harmless children compared to the new ones rising from the shadows.
