A royal wedding is every girl’s dream. It means one celebration after another: balls, fireworks, and revelry until dawn. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement—that she agreed to marry the crown prince just to guarantee Arin’s freedom—if she could only trust him.

Yet even as the danger grows, she can’t help searching for a way to change her ruthless world . . . and she is close to uncovering a shocking secret . . .
