From a multi-USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author comes this romantasy (romantic fantasy), the third in a 6-book series.
“This is a series that you can’t put down, and yet pray not to get to the ending.”
“This was a masterpiece of intrigue and subterfuge and will keep your emotions rolling!”
“A fantasy with a mystery… Well-written, complex characters, lots of intrigue.”
When the husband of the king's mistress is poisoned, Josie must pretend he died of natural causes, or risk putting her own life in danger. It's yet another secret she must learn to keep, yet another intrigue whispered about in the gilded halls of King Leon's mysterious palace. 
With her enemies intent on ruining her, Josie needs all the friends she can get. Friends that include the captain of the guards, a man determined to find out about his past before he gives in to desire.
As the captain becomes more certain that magic stole the servants' memories, some very powerful people also hear the whispers of sorcery and plot to obtain its power for themselves. With rivals from several quarters closing in, events are set in motion that could change the course of the kingdom, and see the palace servants and Josie lose everything.

    I continue to enjoy this series but it’s beginning to drag, thus my rating. I think that books 2 and 3 could easily be made into one book, helping to move the story forward at a better pace. That being said, I can’t wait to find out what twists lie ahead in book 4. On to book 4!
  • The Saga Continues...Very Slowly

    By King Mel
    The mystery of the magic castle is revealed a bit, although hardly more than reader’s had already deduced from the clues in the first two novels in the series. The nobles are still bad, the Captain is still honorable and quick to anger, and Brandt is still a problem in search of a jail cell. All of that remains predictable, as is the fact that Josie continues to refuse to take prudent steps to protect herself from the retaliations of powerful people whom she aggravates on a regular basis. The central romance continues on the same slow simmer as in Book 2. The storytelling is good, overall, with the nuances and details that make a tale interesting and more lifelike. But most of the characters have become rather stagnant by the third book, as has any suspense associated with the lost memories. At this point, you want to tell all of the servants to just move on with their lives. In truth, this is a story that should have been wrapped up a novel or two ago. If it were not for Erik, I would not have given this series another chance by purchasing Book 4.
