To save her people, she will doom herself. To save her, he’ll die.

Finally back home, Meiling finds that returning to her old life as the cursed princess is harder than she imagined. She’s told to rest and recover from her harrowing time in the enemy’s fortress and enjoy the week-long festival.

She can’t. Not when Shang faces losing everything—including his life—because of her. She won’t rest until he is pardoned, but that is easier said than done in a world that still believes her cursed.

It doesn’t help that with each passing day, she cannot ignore the growing feelings in her heart for Shang. It’s impossible to think when he looks at her the way he does, with so much tortured intensity.

But with Shang’s trial, Meiling’s secret magic, and Fang Zedong making it clear he hasn’t forgotten them, dreams of a future with Shang become even more unrealistic. For anyone in the empire to be safe, someone must stop Zedong’s conquest.

Can that someone be the forgotten shadow princess of Zheninghai?

Read the heartpounding climax of the Zheninghai Chronicles, full of slowburn romance, swoon-worthy heroes, breathtaking adventure, and just the right touch of emotional damage. Perfect for fans of Shari Tapscott, Sylvia Mercedes, and Kenley Davidson.

Read A Preview

A slow grin split his face as the color of his cheeks brightened. He wrapped a muscular arm around her waist, pulled her against his chest, and buried his near-silent chuckles in her shoulder.

“What are you doing?” she whispered, hardly daring to breathe as his other arm wrapped around her.

He lifted his head, bringing his mouth to her ear. His low voice tickled down her spine. “I’m flirting with you. I think it’s only fair, considering that you dragged me away from much-needed sleep to risk my life so you could ask me if my feet were cold.”

“That is not a fair characterization!”

He chuckled silently, and it rumbled from his chest into hers. “Would it satisfy you to know that I missed you too?”

“You did?”

His ribcage expanded with another deep breath that stirred her hair when he released it. “I miss you even now, Mei, and you’re still right here.”
