Leaving behind her royal life should have solved most problems for Rachel of New York. While wandering the Royal States buys her peace for a while, her sister's suicide drags her back into the cutthroat world she'd left behind.
The RPS hunting her down to deal with her sister's body is bad enough, but one nameless bachelor at a wedding in Illinois changes everything.
With the help of a sole RPS agent, Rachel attempts to build a new life for herself in the west. With her mental health crumbling under the pressure of remaining in hiding and dodging a crown she doesn't want, she's running out of time. If she doesn't choose her future, someone will choose it for her.
She never anticipated how far Ethan of California would go to win her—or that behind the fiery beast lurking within her is a talent that will forever change the world.
