Until I wasn't. My father sold me north to settle his debts, and I was shipped off to a strange kingdom. To be a wife? A concubine? A trophy won in a war of politics and finances?
No, something much worse.
I was to be sacrificed to the monster hiding in the mountains.
This book can be read as a stand alone, or as a continuation of the Rise of the Draken series.

Thelma and Louise meets Eat, Pray, Love meets Me Before You in The Placeholder, an unconventional, unforgettable, unputdownable story of loss and love.
Serenade Kincaid has lost everything: her stepchildren, her house, half her earnings, her sports car, and her husband, all to a much younger–and more fertile–woman.
Sera now drinks boxed wine from a plastic cup, lives in a seedy motel, and spends her time scrolling dating apps searching for a semi-decent-not-a-mass-murderer-please-just-spend-time-with-me port in the storm.
As Sera leapfrogs through men, her snarky, meddling boss and sometimes-best friend Carolyn encourages Sera to invest in a friend with benefits. Just until Prince Charming comes along, of course.

Cue the booty calls. While avoiding her issues, Sera finds it challenging to stick to her boundaries regarding her too-consistent hookup. But when life takes a sharp left, all fun and games come to a screeching halt. Sera, Zac, and Carolyn must race against time to disentangle their web of lies and deceit before it’s too late.

Forced Perspective: A Novel of Domestic Suspense by Alyssa Richards
In Alyssa Richards’s break-out new novel, a woman who trusts no one has to believe someone—but a shocking finale will turn everything upside down.
After running from her past for so long, Harper Brown is finally in a good place. She’s renovating a beautiful old home in Savannah, has lined up a dream job appraising Civil War antiquities, and is falling in love with the debonair Nick Chamberlain. Most importantly, her anxiety and paranoia are finally under control. But when her twin sister’s ghost appears shrouded in fog in the square across the street, Harper’s carefully assembled life begins to crumble.
It’s time. The warning has Harper questioning everything Nick tells her. He does seem to be rushing their engagement. Digging deeper reveals a decade-old murder and an ex-wife in a coma after falling down a grand staircase. But was it an accident as he claims, or was she pushed? And what does the cryptic note wedged in Harper’s window mean?
