The Spinster . . .
Her uncle sent her to the king’s court to find a husband. But four years have gone by, and still no suitable man has asked for Zovinar’s hand . . . Unable to go home, she spends the balls waiting for them to be over—until, on the night of the crown prince’s visit, a man she has never seen before steps from the shadows.
The Thief . . .
Garreth is on a mission. Injustice must be exposed. His banished friends must be found. He needs money, he needs to stay alive—and he certainly doesn’t need a fragile, timid lady to get in his way while he’s fleeing the palace with her friends’ jewelry in his pockets. But caught red-handed, he has little choice but to comply with her wishes and accompany her back to the ballroom.
A Dance with Death . . .
A single dance. A hurried flight. It should have been their last and only meeting. But their dance has drawn unwelcome attention, and suddenly the spinster and the thief find themselves caught in a web of old lies and new dangers. With a ruthless prince on their trail, the forbidden desire igniting between them may be the least of their troubles . . .
