Published on: 5 May 2015
Synopsis: Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the
heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.
But a princess’s life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.
Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always thought.

Synopsis: When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her.It isn’t until eleven years later that Wendy finds out her mother might’ve been telling the truth. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed—and it’s one she’s not sure if she wants to be a part of.
This book is absolutely AMAZING. I was hooked at the first line, and was was practically hanging onto every single word. The story is somewhat like Twilight, but it’s way better. The characters are unique in their own way, well developed and likeable. The plot has unexpected twists, and though it isn’t very original, the story is one of the best I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend this book to readers looking for fantasy and paranormal romance.
