ThePrince_coverShe’s everything he wants….

Cold. Heartless. Deadly. Whispers of his name alone bring fear to fae and
mortals alike. The Prince. There is nothing in the mortal world more dangerous than him. Haunted by a
past he couldn’t control, all Caden desires is revenge against those who’d wronged him, trapping him in
never-ending nightmare. And there is one person he knows can help him.

She’s everything he can’t have…

Raised within the Order, Brighton Jussier knows just how dangerous the
Prince is, reformed or not. She’d seen firsthand what atrocities he could be capable of. The last thing she

the man under the bitter ice. Yearning for him feels like the definition of insanity, but there’s no denying
the heat in his touch and the wicked promise is his stare.

She’s everything he’ll take….

But there’s someone out there who wants to return the Prince to his
former self. A walking, breathing nightmare that is hell bent on destroying the world and everyone closeto him. The last thing either of them needs is a distraction, but with the attraction growing betweenthem each now, the one thing he wants more than anything may be the one thing that will be hisundoing.

She’s everything he’d die for….

EXCERPT: 

Did it make you a bad friend if you were completely, a hundred percent envious of that friend? Yes? No?
Kind of?

I figured it was somewhere in between.

That’s what I was mulling over as I watched Ivy Morgan brush thick, red curls over her shoulder, laughing at something her boyfriend Ren Owens had said to her.

At least I wasn’t envious of that—their love. Okay, well, that wasn’t entirely true. Pretty sure anyone who was as single as me would be envious of all that warm and fuzzy that was passed back and forth with each long look or casual brush of skin. The two could barely tear their gazes away from one another to eat the dinner we’d grabbed at the cute little diner inside the shopping center on Prytania Street.

I honest to God couldn’t be happier for them. They’d been through so much—way more than two people should ever have to go through to be together, and here they were, stronger and more in love than ever, and they deserved that happiness.

But their epic love story wasn’t the source of a current case of the green-eye monster that was sitting on my shoulder.

Ivy was just such a… badass.

Even right now, relaxed in the chair, surrounded by twinkling Christmas lights with her hand in Ren’s and her belly full of a cheeseburger deluxe and crinkle fries and half of my tater tots, she could kick ass and take names along with addresses, telephone numbers, and social security numbers.

If the proverbial poo hit the fan, you called Ivy or Ren.

If you needed to know what streets Royal intersected with, you called… me. Or if you needed coffee or fresh beignets but were currently busy, you know, saving the world, you’d call me.

The three of us were all members of the Order, a widespread organization that was literally the only thing that stood between mankind and complete, utter enslavement and destruction by the fae. And not the super cute fae found in Disney movies or some crap like that. Humans thought they were on top of the food chain. They were wrong. The fae were.

The only thing pop culture got right about the fae was their slightly pointy ears. That was it. The fae were more than just beings from another world—the Otherworld—they were capable of glamouring their appearance to blend in with humans. But all Order members, even me, were warded at birth against the glamour. We saw through the human façade to the creature that lurked beneath.

On a hot summer night, a screech of
brakes and shattering glass changes two lives forever.

 

Liv wakes in the hospital, confused when they call her Morgan. She assumes it’s
a case of mistaken identity, yet when the bandages come off, it’s not her face
in the mirror anymore. It’s her best friend Morgan’s.

 

Morgan always seemed to have the perfect life, yet Liv must navigate endlessly
disturbing secrets of the criminal and murderous variety—and a romance that
feels like a betrayal. Torn between the boy she loved as Liv and the boy she’s
grown to love as Morgan, Liv still has to survive Morgan’s last request.

Excerpt
“Just let this be the second secret you
keep for me,” I say then. “Thanks for not telling Nathan, by the way.”
Clay leans his arm along the door frame,
tilting his head slightly out the open window as if he needs the air. “You
couldn’t pay me to talk to that jackass lately.”
“You two fighting?”
“No. He’s just . . . Nathan.” He
hesitates. “I wasn’t going to tell you this . . .”
“What?” Anything that could divert me
from my precarious situation, even momentarily, seems like a welcome
distraction.
“He brought a girl home last night.”
From his tone he expects this to destroy me.
And sure, there’s a twinge because
before, I thought Nathan and I had a soul-deep connection. Fact is, he’s a
little immature, a lot selfish, and I just never noticed. They say love is
blind, but I’d say that infatuation is blind, and love is tolerant. When you
really love someone, it’s not that you can’t see the flaws; you’re just willing
to forgive them.
Belatedly I realize he’s expecting a
reply. “I’m not surprised. Nathan is used to getting what he wants just like
you’re using to giving things up. Oh, I was going to ask him to drop this off,
but since you’re here . . .” I fish in my backpack for his hoodie.
Yes, I’ve been carrying it for like four
days. First I hesitated to wash it, but I didn’t want to be a sad girl who’s
still smelling her ex’s clothes a month later. Then I didn’t return it because
that felt like final acceptance, —superstitious, I know. Over is over, and
random articles of clothing don’t change anything.
“You didn’t need to bother with that.
I’ve had it forever.”
“All the more reason for you to have it
back,” I say.
“Do you need to be this cool about
everything?” he bursts out. “I know you have to be scared and hurt—”
“Yeah, I am, all those things. And yes,
I have to be this way, or I can’t function. Why are you even here anyway?” The
pain and frustration cracks my voice, and I really wish I was anywhere else.
“Because I’m worried about you.”
“Then stop. I accepted your decision,
now respect mine. It’ll be easier if I don’t have to see you.”
His jaw clenches, showing the force he’s
exerting to bite back whatever he wants to say.
Finally he just takes his hoodie but he
pauses with his hand on the door. “You know you can call me, right? Even if
we’re not together, I’d never let anyone hurt you. One call and I’m there.”
My heart feels like it’ll crack in two,
but I’m resolute; I have to be. “I already deleted your number.”

Rosa Fedele is a phenomenal Australian Author, who also has amazing artist skills! She drew all of the illustrations in the book. They belong in an art museum. Seriously, they are so gorgeous! If you like dark, mysterious ghost stories, then this is for you! Plus it takes place in Australia. I would love to visit one day!

About the Author:

14235900‘For me, every painting and every book is a new adventure, started with a thrill of excitement and anticipation.’

Australian author and artist Rosa Fedele, known for her portrait and figurative work, was born in Sydney and studied at the prestigious Julian Ashton Art School. A member of Portrait Artists Australia, Australia’s largest industry association for professional portraitists, her work has been exhibited in NSW Parliament House and Parliament House Canberra, as well as numerous galleries and exhibitions in Australia and worldwide.

Rosa fell avidly in love with books at a very young age. Her favourites were those by C.S. Lewis and Tolkien, and later on Raymond E. Feist, David Eddings, Anne McCaffrey and Frank Herbert; in fact, anything with beautiful and spellbinding words and imagery that would allow her to escape into other worlds.

Her debut novel The Red Door was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream, to interweave a story with pictures and draw the reader into her own bewitching, and slightly dark-edged, world. The next in her illustrated suspense series, THE LEGACY OF BEAUREGARDE, will be released 10 July 2018, stay tuned and follow the hashtag #australiannoir
