As a general's daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin's eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him 'with unexpected consequences. It's not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

  10. For some reason I have been having a problem on my computer with the rafflecopters on your blog showing up for me. I reload and reload over and over again, and even give it up to 5 minutes sometimes and it still won't show up. Sometimes, when I'm lucky, it will show up after 20 or so tries. And meanwhile, I can get rafflecopters to show up on other blogs with no problem. It's weird, it's the same for every giveaway you have. Anyway, I'm not complaining, I just wanted to let you know. :)

    1. Ugh, that's a first! I've never had a problem with my giveaways before. Your the first person to tell me that, and the rafflecopter collects entries for everyone who enters!
