Defiant : Magic can have deadly consequences.
When the sudden and suspicious death of Eloise’s mother points to forbidden magic, Eloise is determined to bring her mother’s murderer to justice. She will stop at nothing to find the killer…even if the clues lead right to the palace gates and the prince’s manservant, Kaven. He is irrational, volatile, and prone to knocking women off horses. Given his personality, it should be easy to find the proof she needs to place him in irons. However, when dark magic is used, nothing is as it seems, and Eloise is about to learn that nightmares often hide behind fairy tale lives.

“Here, Miss Eloise.” Our groomsman appeared from the stable, leading Sugar by her reins.

“Does that sound like hunting dogs?”

“It does.” He nimbly leapt onto Sugar’s back. “I’ll go warn the hunters away.”

As Hugh rode down the rutted path leading away from our small estate, I turned toward the two-storied house I called home. Smoke curled from all four chimneys, but with the hint of spring in the crisp air, I knew the fires wouldn’t be necessary for long.

Letting myself into the kitchen, I inhaled the warm yeasty smell of the bread dough Judith was kneading.

“Were those hounds we heard?” she asked.

“Yes. Hugh went to warn the owners off.” I shrugged out of my cloak and hung it and my apron by the door.

“It’s been happening too frequently in recent years. The king should remind people that he cares about these lands by visiting them more often.” Judith, who’d been with our family since I’d been born sixteen years ago, knew just how infrequently the king left his castle.

“I’m sure he has bigger concerns with Prince Granger’s negotiations in the north,” I said.

“What could we possibly need from the north?” Anne asked as she set a tray with a tea service for three.”
