One of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2019
A PUBLISHERS WEEKLY STARRED REVIEW: ” Desert clippers and light rail, magic-powered cellphones, black royalty, and a princess negotiating chronic illness bring both depth and delight to this kind, lighthearted romance. Once upon a time, Princess Abelia Olivia Jayne Venenza Ribaldi Porchenzii renounced matriarchal Brevspor’s throne for an anonymous life working in waste reclamation. Then Abbie learns her engagement contract to Prince Edward of Orangiers is still valid—and to defeat his brother Lincoln’s foreign-backed coup, she must honor it. Resolved to renegotiate her freedom and say goodbye to her ailing father, Abbie sets off through the magic-ridden Unveiled. But duty-driven Edward’s proposal isn’t just a geopolitical stopgap: he loves Abbie, and there might be ways for an ex-princess and a reluctant heir to be happy on both their terms. Final Fantasy fans will relish West’s debut, a vibrant, voraciously readable adventure whose technocratic fantasy world is grounded by a generous understanding of everyday limitations and love. This perfect confection is socially aware, wonderstruck, and unforgettably fun. “
Princes aren’t used to being ghosted.
Edward has been patient. Five years. He waited for his best friend (and betrothed) to return home and fulfill the marriage contract they signed. But he can’t wait anymore. Embroiled in a war he fears he can’t win, he must ascend the throne ASAP with Abbie ruling beside him. If he can just reason with her face to face, he knows they can work it out… that is, assuming she’s more reasonable than she used to be.
All Abbie wants is a cup of coffee, her marriage contract voided, and a horse that doesn’t talk. Is that so much for a princess to ask? But when Edward tracks her down, her dreams of a simple, common life go poof. Now she must choose a life of freedom or one of duty. If only Edward wasn’t so dang alluring, the choice might be easier …
Can an insecure prince and a headstrong princess find enough common ground to fall in love?

Is true love like lightning, or can it strike twice?
Sam only took this job as a favor to one of his best friends, Edward, who also happens to be king. Despite the recent notoriety he gained on a dangerous mission, he doesn’t make friends with women–he doesn’t even make eye contact if he can help it. Being assigned with Macias, the most intimidating woman he’s ever met, poses a small problem. Falling in love with her poses a huge problem.
Tezza Macias, the Grand Duchess’s night security, is too tough to admit that the disappearance of her husband is breaking her. Guaranteeing Abbie’s safety matters more than anything to her, but as depression creeps in, she’s losing her connection with the magic that makes her excel at her job. Her new partner isn’t making things easier with his probing, personal questions about things she’d rather not talk about…even if his brand of handsome shyness is pushing all her buttons.
When a curious projection stalks the castle halls, can they work together to discover its source…and the threat it may pose?

A boy from the docks stands no chance with a princess, right?
If Rhododendron Broward could immunize herself against the inconvenient attraction she feels toward her brother’s best friend, she would’ve done it years ago. Even though she’s a doctor and researcher, she’s never found a cure for his charm. Thankfully, being a princess, she’s been able to keep him at arms’ length…until he volunteered as security for her expedition.

What happens to a magic user when the magic starts using him?
The Warlord-in-Chief of Gratha is so old, he’s forgotten the name his mother gave him.

Even if he trusted his little apprentice with his secret (and his heart), there’s nothing Frieda could do to help him…there’s nothing anyone can do. For the good of Gratha, she must take over the magic when he’s gone, and that will be soon. Using Frieda is essential; loving her wasn’t part of the plan.
Frieda didn’t ask to be in this position. Everyone else is scared stiff of the big, bad Warlord, but after years together, she’s becoming more his equal every day.
