A member of the Dark Court, Vancia has spent her life among humans—together but separate, hiding in plain sight. Now Pappa says it's time to put her glamour to use against the unsuspecting humans and, worse, agree to an arranged political marriage with a guy she's never even met.
After the sudden death of her parents, Vancia felt lucky to have been taken in by family friend Davis Hart, who is not only generous to her, he's a powerful Senate committee chairman.
Now, five years later, she's settled into her new life, splitting her time between their homes in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, Georgia, where she goes to school. She'd like to feel like a regular high school student, but there's nothing regular about their world. Her busy adoptive father is always travelling, and he's secretive, spending a great deal of time with a shadowy organization he calls The Council.
When he tells Vancia about a political marriage he arranged for her years ago, she reluctantly agrees. After all, she owes her "Pappa," and he deserves her loyalty. Besides, she gets the distinct feeling that his request isn't actually a choice. And there may be even more to her mysterious groom and their impending marriage than he's letting on.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE SWAY:
"I could not put this book down. The story-line held me entranced in an elven world, hiding in plain sight among mortals, seeking domination while a greater mystery unfolded. I was flipping through the pages faster than ever in dire need to find out what happens next in the female protagonist's life and if she will ever find a back bone to defy her overly obstinate, adoptive father's plans for her life. The cliff hanger at the end drove me somewhat insane, but it is an exemplary novella for the YA audience that I HIGHLY recommend. On a side note, I am still overly desperate to learn the grand scheme of things behind the conspiracy theory. I will be reading the other books. I HAVE to read the other books." Paranormal Trance Reviews
Sway - Part of a new series beginning with Hidden Deep this can be a standalone story. In the first book we met the Light Elves where the prince is arranged to marry. This novella is developed around his betrothed and her storyline as part of the Dark Elves. I really enjoyed discovering the connections of characters and trying to decipher on my own those connections. Patrick does a wonderful job developing twists and descriptive imagery. Very easy to get lost in the Elven world.
