Kingdom of Beauty (Book One)
Peasant girls don’t mingle with dragons, princes, and beastly curses…or so Felicity thought
After a lifetime with a grief-stricken father and a self-absorbed brother, Felicity isn’t daunted by sacrifice. But when protecting her father means falling afoul of the curse that has swallowed the Summer Castle, and Prince Justin along with it, her own safety is not all that’s at stake. The prince’s monstrous form is the least of her concerns—the whole castle has been trapped by his pride, and his absence from the capital is driving the kingdom to ruin.
Justin was born to be a king, not a beast. Between the inhuman coldness he learned from his father, the humiliation of his cursed form, and his powerlessness against his hidden enemies back in the capital, laughter is the last thing on his mind. But even though she’s a prisoner, nothing seems to dampen the intruder’s maddening cheerfulness. Justin has to break his curse, and he needs someone like Felicity to do it. But as she begins to thaw the ice around his heart, he discovers her past is not what it seems.
With time running out, not just for the castle’s inhabitants, but for the kingdom of Albury, they will need more than the help of a dragon to break the curse and prevent disaster before it’s too late. But for all Felicity’s warmth and laughter, even she could never look at Justin and like what she sees.
Kingdom of Beauty is the first installment in The Kingdom Tales, a series of interconnected standalone novels set on the continent of Solstice, where dragons do their own thing, enchanters run amok, and happily ever afters require some chasing.

Kingdom of Slumber (Book Two)
The only thing worse than being cursed to sleep is being the only one left awake
Unlike everyone around her, Princess Azalea has never been especially troubled by the curse placed on her at her christening. But, as her sixteenth birthday approaches, even Ben—usually her only sanctuary from her well-meaning protectors—starts to worry. Not to mention he begins acting strangely about the betrothal that’s bound them since childhood. Being forced to marry her best friend has always seemed like a far bigger problem than a mere curse—until the unthinkable happens.
Prince Bentleigh has been in a quandary for some time. How do you go about winning a girl who’s already yours, whether she wants to be or not? Any hope of finding an answer withers the moment Azalea pricks her finger and is ripped from him. The magic powering her enchanted sleep is so strong, the whole kingdom succumbs during the hours of darkness. And nothing else matters but finding a way to wake her up.
Except Azalea isn’t asleep. At least, not once the sun sets. And with the rest of the kingdom in an unnatural slumber, there’s no one but her to fight the deadly magic creeping into the heart of her kingdom. As the curse becomes more aggressive, Azalea and Bentleigh grow increasingly desperate—enough to risk war with the dragons, their own lives…even their hearts.
If they can’t break the curse—and soon—Listernia will fall. But if they do what must be done, they’ll lose all hope of a future they once thought inevitable.
Kingdom of Slumber is the second installment in The Kingdom Tales, a series of interconnected standalone novels set on the continent of Solstice, where dragons do their own thing, enchanters run amok, and happily ever afters require some chasing.

Kingdom of Cinders (Book Three)
Born into a kingdom where power is outlawed, Penny has little reason to love her magic. She barely remembers her mother, and even her father dies unaware of her abilities. Now, magic or not, Penny is powerless to escape the bitter tangle of competition her stepmother has created between her and her stepsisters. And a series of chance encounters with the crown prince only adds to her troubles. The last thing she needs is to attract the notice of the very royals who have turned her existence into a crime.
Prince Rian has never been sure about his parents’ ban on magic, but he has no choice but to embrace it. The weight of a kingdom is on his shoulders, after all. With the departure of his younger brother to a neighboring kingdom, he’s never had more pressure and less support. His parents are ready to choose Bansford’s future queen, and the last thing he can afford is to get distracted by a servant girl…no matter how intriguing she might be.
But the king and queen aren’t wrong to be afraid—the darkest kind of magic is coming for Bansford. It’s time for Penny to decide where her loyalties truly lie, and Rian…he will have to decide just how much he’s willing to sacrifice for the kingdom he’s sworn to serve.
