The journey continues:
Kay had discovered secrets, lies, shocking truths, and even love in a strange new world hidden from humans. Everything she thought she knew was turned upside down when she found out three things:
– She wasn’t human.
– She has a power she can’t control.
– And there was a possibility that she had found a way to cure the cancer that was rapidly killing her with that very same power.
Then, just when she was on the precipice of gaining everything she wanted and saving her own life, tragedy struck. Will she be able to fight her way back to Ryan and save herself in the process?
Kira had lived a terrifying and confusing life of servitude and abuse under Lord Donovan and his son, Cole. It was an existence that had stripped away her emotions, and eventually, her reason to keep fighting. Just when she thought freedom was within reach, Lord Donovan struck again, ruining her plans and almost killing her in the process. When she awoke from her injuries, it was to stunning revelations that would change her life forever. Changes that she was not entirely sure she wanted to embrace.
Persistent individuals such as Prince Kane refuse to let her walk away, though. Will she embrace all of the sudden fortune in her life? Or will she walk away from those who need her most, forsaking their acceptance and love?

knowledge about my body to myself.
No longer thinking of the innate dangers of how one should act or speak to royalty, I
Shocked looks went around the room at my angry outburst, but I lingered on Kane’s
excessively amused look.
Growling in exasperation, I spoke through gritted teeth. “What’s interesting, Kane? Are you
mocking me somehow?”
“Kira, dove, look down.”
Doing as he said, I looked to the floor and froze. Not quite literally, but it was pretty damn
Underneath the foot I had stomped a second before, the floor glistened with frost and ice. A
layer of ice also encased my foot and had effectively sealed it to the area of frosted floor around
“Ah, God! Undo this, Kane! Undo it right now! Why would you do this to me?” I kept
trying to jerk my leg up, but it wouldn’t budge an inch from its frozen spot on the floor.
“I had nothing to do with that, Kira. That is all you, dove.”
