About the book: 

The world is divided between the Goldarians and the witches, and Jessamyn has found herself caught in the middle. Once thought to only be a baker’s daughter, she has since learned that she is so much more, and will become so much more.


Struggling to keep a secret that could destroy their realm, Jessamyn attempts to navigate her new life at the palace. While free of Lucinda’s curse, Nik and Jessamyn face a new threat: King Nikolaus Goldarian.


The relationship Nik and Jessamyn forged while trying to break Lucinda’s curse is tested when they find themselves on opposite sides of the societal wall that separates mortal from witch.


Lucinda’s spell was only the beginning of the witches’ wrath against the crown, and soon Nik will have to choose between his kingdom, or her freedom.
