Cat has made the decision to stay with Leopold in Solis, leaving behind any chance of life as an average teenager. With the help of Governor Richard, she has found herself next in line for the throne of Arcadis, which is to be liberated from French control upon her ascension.
But when ancient artifacts rumored to be lost centuries ago start to turn up, and Leopold is victim to a tragic and mysterious accident, Cat must step up and rule her people without his direction. With Antoine lurking around every corner, Cat may have to start plotting who will wear the crown of both countries if Leopold doesn’t recover.
Can truth and love survive when the path to the throne and crown is riddled with deception and daggers?
Catherine and Leopold have made their relationship official. They are able to do that because France has given back the power to Arcadis. Catherine finds herself the Queen of Arcadis thanks to Governor Richard. It seems that Richard has his own agenda onto why he worked so hard to get the country reinstated. Mysterious artifacts start showing up and Cat is concerned. Leopold is in a mysterious accident that leaves in question who will rule the countries?
In ” an Oyster Shell – A short novel that is riveting with action and romance.
The Pearls – It’s a great continuation of the story. Leopold and Catherine get a little more serious in this book and I love it. It’s an imaginative tale that kept me turning the pages.
The characters are even more defined in this second book. Catherine’s development is story worthy. Leopold shows, even more, affection in this book and it is breathtaking.
This novel has more mystery to it. What is Governor Richard and his nephew Antoine up to? It can’t be anything good because Leopold is left nearly dead after a fatal accident. It’s intriguing and I can’t wait to read the conclusion of the story in the next book.
The Sand – The main character is named something different in the first book. It was awkward and confusing to have the named switch. I wonder if the publisher will have this fixed before it comes to print. I hope so! It’s a glaring mistake. The book is short and left on a cliffhanger I would prefer if they just extended the story.
