DANCE WITH THE WIND
Love. Magic. And a young woman discovering both for the first time.
All 18-year-old Ylena wanted was to explore the City of the Goddess, a sparkling city with extravagant fashion, delicious coffee, and magic-wielding Priests. For a lonely outsider like Ylena, being in the middle of so many new experiences was more than she ever dreamed.
Instead, she got tricked into auditioning for a magical ceremony, one celebrating the Goddess whose High Priests rule the City. Every year, the young singers and dancers compete for the honor of performing in the magical ceremony. The enchanted performances are thrilling, but a single wrong note is blasphemy.
If learning her role wasn’t hard enough, unexpected emotions make rehearsals even more complicated. There’s Wilder, Ylena’s flirty costar who knows more about the City’s dark secrets than he’s willing to tell, and Caed, her dance instructor, who is young, attractive, and a Priest.
And when Ylena manifests magic that makes her a threat, she must escape the spotlight at center stage, before the High Priests discover her secret.
A flirty thief.
A dutiful prince.
Will she con him out of the treasure or will she lose her heart instead?
Alanna is just a street rat struggling to stay alive. With the help of a few fancy dresses, she’s learned how to con unsuspecting men out of enough coins to pay her bills.
But all that changed when she stumbled onto the Prince in disguise. He’s her perfect target: handsome, rich, and clueless. So why can’t she bring herself to con him like all the others?
And when a mysterious woman offers her a magical lamp, Alanna will have to choose between her dreams or her heart.

When Kainda and Ander join forces, they soon realize that what they’re fighting for and where their hearts lie may be at odds. Can they defeat the mysterious monster, or will duty, riddles, and secrets be their undoing?
