She'll win back her freedom, even if she has to steal it.

Nimona Weston has a debt to pay. Her father’s dealings with the dark society known as the Trust cost Nim her freedom. There’s one way out of the contract on her life and that’s to bide her time and pay the tithes. But when the Trust assigns Nim to a task in the king’s own castle, her freedom is not the only thing she’ll risk.

Warrick Spenser has a secret. As king’s seneschal, he should be the last soul in Inara to risk association with dark magic, but long-hidden ties to the Trust are harder to shed than simply cutting the threads. When the Trust sends a thief to his rooms, Warrick thinks he’s finally found a way to be rid of them for good. But Nimona Weston is hiding secrets of her own.

He stepped closer. “Miss Weston, you steal into my private rooms in the small hours of the night, question whether I’m entertaining guests, and expect me to be dressed for your company.”
“I didn’t—you misunderstand. I only mean to make you more comfortable.”
“By invading my private quarters.”
Nim huffed. “Well, I certainly cannot call on you in any way that is proper, now can I?”
His silence seemed to say, and whose fault is that?
She crossed her own arms, stung by his assessment. “Have you something against light in this room?”
The clouds took it upon themselves in that moment to part, letting half a dozen shafts of moonlight spear through the window and, to her horror, over the lines of his chest. Heat rose in Nim’s cheeks, and she had to resist the urge to back away from him. Not because she wanted to but because she very much didn’t. She wanted to look at him, which would have been incredibly foolish.
He was the seneschal of Inara, second to the king and the man responsible for hanging people like her.


Melissa Wright

Melissa is the author of more than a dozen YA and fantasy novels including The Frey Saga and BETWEEN INK AND SHADOWS. When not writing she can generally be found talking about a book, painting something from a book, or tucked between headphones listening to a book. It’s kind of a theme. She loves reasonable heroines in unreasonable situations, noble--if brooding--heroes, slow burn and sweet kisses, a lot of havoc, and a little magic.
