My new wife is keeping secrets.
When I agreed to this arranged marriage, I knew there would be challenges—but I never expected to stumble into a mystery like this. Princess Justine is hiding something important from me, and I won’t rest until I find out what—even if I have to play dirty.
I intend to uncover all of my wife’s secrets. And I plan to enjoy every delicious moment of it.
Ember Casey is a USA Today bestselling author living in Atlanta, Georgia in a den of iniquity (or so she likes to tell people). When she’s not writing steamy romances, you can find her whipping up baked goods (usually of the chocolate variety), traveling (her bucket list is infinite), or generally causing trouble (because somebody has to do it).
Renna Peak is a bestselling contemporary romance author living in Spokane, Washington. When she's not scheming her next plot twist, she enjoys gardening, paper crafts, collecting office supplies (she has a major colored-pen problem), and hanging out with her four children.
Though my husband seems to believe it is his right to know my darkest secrets, I can never tell him the one that troubles me most.
I want to allow William into my heart—he’s everything I’ve ever wanted, and I’ve never known a greater desire. But I’m not sure I can ever surrender enough to allow us to find anything close to love.
Prince William swore he’d never marry a noblewoman. But when he agrees to an arranged marriage to save Montovia, he has no idea what’s in store…
As the third son of my family, I never thought I’d have to make a political marriage, especially in this day and age. I enjoy my freedom - but for the sake of my family and my country, I’m willing to do the unthinkable and wed Princess Justine of Rosvalia.
But Justine is nothing like I thought - from her fiery temper to her mysterious past, I find her far more intriguing than I anticipated. The only problem? She hates my guts.
I’m not one to shy away from a challenge, though, and now I have a new goal: to seduce my new wife, by whatever means necessary.
When we finally—finally—find our common ground and begin our relationship anew, it seems the universe is conspiring to keep us apart. And this time, it isn’t simply a misunderstanding.
This time, it’s much bigger than either of us.
Victoria can help me to do just that. And though she finds my plan ridiculous, it is the only way to regain what I’ve lost.
But she continues to surprise me. And after our ordeal, I find I’m unable to find comfort anywhere but in her arms.
I can't stay away from her, but I know that because of my position, she and I can never be together.
But I also can’t give her up. I’ve never wanted anyone or anything like I want Victoria. And even though circumstances try to tear us apart, I can’t stay away—and impossible or not, I can’t put off my choice any longer.
The king’s demands are beyond unrealistic. Do we really have to choose between Leo giving up his life and me giving up mine?
Finally, Elle is in Montovia with me. But she didn’t exactly get the welcome I expected. Now I have two choices: give up my title in order to be with Elle, or prove to my father that I can be responsible.
Unfortunately, responsibility for me is easier said than done. Especially when I seem to lose all sense of control around Elle.
There has to be a way to find our happily ever after. Together.
This is Part Five of a six-part contemporary romance serial by bestselling authors Renna Peak and Ember Casey.
