Two forbidden lovers share the rare gift to heal others with a kiss—but at a cost.
Enchanted healer Odelia’s life has been a lie. Her father hid his visions of her future as the leader of a bloody civil war. When she uncovers the truth, she must decide whether to forsake her people or embrace a destiny that would pit her against the current heir to the throne...the man she loves.
Prince Kennard doesn’t want to take after his father, as a king or a man; whereas, the shape-shifting tyrant sees his son as weak. With every choice they make, the spirited prince and the inflexible king pull further apart. Kennard takes an active role at court, enlisting his friend Odelia’s aid—unaware of her destined betrayal. Helping him build his royal retinue and find a bride will force her to bury her feelings and will bring his to the surface.
Amid culture clashes and threats of war, Odelia and Kennard navigate a world where power always has a price. If they choose the wrong paths, they could destroy not only their hearts but lives and nations.
And a kiss might not be strong enough to save them…

Queen Odelia got everything she wanted—and it just might kill her. She and King Kennard have pulled off a successful coup, but to hold on to their turbulent kingdom, the newlyweds must accomplish the impossible. Subduing the opposition means sentencing Kennard’s family, possibly to death. And although the promised heir of Odelia’s pregnancy helped them in their coup, no Healer has ever survived childbirth before.
Of course, through it all, Meriveria is still at war, not helped by the incompetent militaryleadership Kennard’s father put in place. Victory may require costly and unpleasant alliances, counter to the kind of rulers they want to be.
Can Kennard and Odelia hold their composure and bring their people together as they face the prospect of losing everything and everyone they hold dear?

Alex, the Prince of Fyr, is no novice when it comes to pressure. He has to face his father’s ailing health, the expectation to marry soon, and the hidden necromancers trying to take over the realm by exploiting his dark curse. At least there’s hope in a cheeky savior, but Earth girls aren’t so easy.
Toury and Alex learn that the strongest magic cannot be conjured but must be earned. They must risk their lives, hearts, and futures to save the land from a darkness of apocalyptic proportions. But can they trust each other enough to save Fyr? Or will everything they hold dear turn to ash?

After everything they’ve been through, Alex and Toury deserve a happily ever after, but being king proxy is not all it’s cracked up to be.
Alex inherited a world divided by his father, including incensed rebels—and a rogue dragon on the loose!—but the most pressing issue is Toury. Though he chose his kingdom over her and hurt her, by the god and goddess, he loves her too much to let her go. But can he ever do enough to deserve her?
Toury is a shell of her former self and grappling to figure out who—in this still-alien world—she will become. Her relationship is a hot mess, nightmares plague her, and rooting out necromancers is more than overwhelming—not to mention family baggage. Becoming queen means overcoming her past and seeing Alex for the man he is and not the cursed monster who destroyed their love.
Rebels, dragons, and betrayals galore are just another day of court life. Toury and Alex managed to save the world, but can they repair a torn kingdom while their personal lives are in shambles?
