The Garde values four ideals: The Truth we twist. The Beauty we flaunt. The Freedom we grant. The Power we take.
I believed their lies until Lacey O'Shea.
She’s the only daughter of the Garde's leading family, and she was meant to be mine. But her father stole her from me to sell to another.
So I stole her back.
But there's more to the conspiracy that kept us apart, and we have to keep our relationship secret from her former fiancé, the Baron, to find the truth.
He wants to lock his diamond away, but she’s a bird desperate to flee her gilded cage.
I'll fight the Baron, the Garde, and the whole damn world to free her.
