I didn’t care that he was a prince—they would not force me to marry a stranger.
A royal wedding turns to disaster when a sinister curse goes awry. A victim of the Sorcerer’s prophecy, Roselyn’s memories are instantly erased, leaving her panicked at the altar. Unwilling to marry a stranger, she flees to the place her prince fears most—the enchanted Mistbrooke Forest. Lost and afraid, she seeks help from a dark, mysterious traveler who may be the key to recovering her stolen memories.
After years of solitude, Cedrick is lost in the horrors of his past. He never expected to find himself face to face with the future princess of Cadell. The longstanding feud between their kingdoms doesn’t douse the fiery connection he feels to her, so when she requests safe passage through the forest, he can’t ignore her plea—even though it puts both their lives at risk.
Rose is determined to regain her memories, but with Cedrick as her reluctant guide, she experiences the magic of the forest through new eyes. Does true love really exist? She is beginning to think it might—with Cedrick. But when her past collides with her present, sparks explode, and the very memories she’s been seeking are the ones she most wishes she could forget.
Can she break the curse without breaking her heart?

To escape death, I pledged an unbreakable vow to the sea.
A failed ransom sends Marigold overboard into the turquoise waters, death’s grip too tight to escape. As she sinks into the darkness, her screams echo into a bewitching song, luring a handsome merman to her rescue. Now the ancient magic that saved her chains them together, their destinies and hearts entwined forever—a bond Marigold didn’t ask for, especially as painful memories from her past weigh heavily on her conscience. Desperate to reconcile with her estranged family, she flees to shore before her transformation can complete.
But Ryken is hooked, refusing to leave her side, even if that means following his mate to the surface and entering the one place despised by the Merfolk. His rash decision strips him of his strength and converts his glittering tail into a pair of useless legs. With their roles reversed, he is forced to rely on Marigold to help him traverse the human world while they search for her family. The longer they stay on land, the more their feelings grow into something deeper—something he would kill to protect.
Chaos ripples out from Cadell’s feuding territories, sending the couple off course into dangerous territory. But Marigold refuses to give up on her quest despite Ryken’s warnings. The salty breeze beckons them home—a reminder that their time on land is running out. Torn between her family and her vow to the sea, she finds herself testing the bonds of her newfound love.
Will she ignore the call of the sea, even as war looms in the distance? Or will she find the courage to fulfill her destiny with Ryken at her side?

Be careful what you wish for...these magic beans come at a price.
She has stolen from the king and now must suffer the consequences. He’s an honor-bound guard, forced to uphold the law. Can she wish her way out of this disaster, or will their budding romance wilt before it even has a chance to blossom?
Jacklyn is tired of the injustice and mistreatment of her fellow farmers in the Kingdom of Cadell. After a rash decision nearly banishes her and her family, she does the unthinkable and trades a rare pumpkin for a sack of magic beans. Despite knowing magic is outlawed, she plants them anyway, hoping the beans will grant her heart’s desire.
But magic is unpredictable, and the beans of transformation were more than what she had bargained for, twisting her wish into a nightmare when her best friend Gillian becomes tangled in the vines of ancient magic. Desperate to save him, Jacklyn must climb the beanstalk, search the forbidden tower for a lost item, and return it to the mysterious woman who traded her the beans.
Time is ticking and she doesn’t have a moment to lose. Can Jacklyn complete her quest before the end of the Harvest Ball, when the blood moon rises and kills everything planted in the soil—including her beloved Gillian? Or will the magic destroy her only hope at a happily ever after?
