A thin veil of etiquette, elegance, and glamour hides the true nature of the Trials. Behind closed doors, they are brutal and bloody, and to fail means to forfeit her life.

  • Tate James

    "Madison Kate Danvers was murdered tonight." Those words changed my life, and not for the better. They were wrong, of course. I wasn't dead. But I was set up. After being charged with a string of offences-and made an example of by my political-minded father-I'm eventually released back into Shadow Grove with one thing on my mind. Hate. Someone is going to pay for derailing my carefully laid out future. Someone is going to catch the full force of my hate. How very convenient that someone just moved into the bedroom down the hall from me. Archer D'Ath and his boys messed with the wrong chick and they're about to learn just how cold Madison Kate's hate can run. Hate is...read more

    "Liar, liar, pants on fire." The words scrawled on the back of my newest stalker mail makes my blood run cold. I have no idea if it's the lie I know, or one that I don't. Since arriving back into Shadow Grove, I've been stalked, tormented, chased, and almost killed. I've been lied to, repeatedly, by people I was growing to trust. Liar. That word haunts me. Someone knows more about my life than I do. Someone is taunting me with answers and teasing me with secrets. Am I desperate enough to fall for more deception? Archer and his boys made a huge mistake when they lied to me. They thought they could play me but they're about to learn that they've met their match. No one stabs...read more

    "You'll always be mine." The latest taunt from my stalker reminded me I was nothing more than a possession to my father, to the Reapers, to Archer D'Ath. Even to Kody and Steele. Princess Danvers-the prize. His wife. Archer D'Ath's wife. I hate them. They lied to me. Over and over again. I knew they were lying, and I hate myself for letting it happen. For believing in the fake relationships I want so desperately to be real. Fake. It's all f*cking fake. My stalker won't let me go. None of them will. Archer and his boys think they control me. My stalker wants to possess me. I'm not an idiot, I know my newest allies are using me too. That's fine. I'll use all of them....read more

    "I never miss." Riot Night changed my life. Coming back to Shadow Grove turned it on its head. I've been hunted, stabbed, stalked, tormented, and used. Hate fueled me, lies tore me apart, and in the end everything I thought I knew turned out to be fake. Except ... Riot Night also brought Archer, Kody, and Steele back into my life. No matter how much I've fought it, hated it, been lied to, or discovered the deceptions-I want them in my life. No one owns me. No one is taking them away. This is my life, dammit, and these guys are mine to keep. If a war is what it takes, then a war is what they'll...read more

  • Tate James

    Five years ago, I masterminded the infamous massacre of the Tri-state Timberwolves. The streets outside the Wolves HQ ran red with the blood of the old guard, and not one of those members loyal to my father were spared mercy. Not a single one. I let the media twist and distort the story. My new recruits eagerly proved themselves in spreading false news, in covering our tracks. To the general public, the Tri-State Timberwolves were extinct. But that couldn't have been further from the truth. We changed, we grew, we evolved and came out stronger than ever. Now, I live, eat, sleep, and breathe Timberwolves. I'll do anything to keep my empire safe and thriving. To keep the people...read more

  • Tate James

    Five years ago, I made a choice that I haven't regretted a day since. I protected the single most important person in my world, my little sister. I protected myself, and I seized control of the Tri-state Timberwolves. Since then, I've wielded that power with an iron fist. Done whatever it took to take care of my people. Kept us out of the public eye, and kept us safe. Now a ghost from my past is threatening my position. Challenging me. Peddling their poison and breaking my rules. Stabbing at me in the dark. Blowing up my fucking club. But this last attack has taken it one step too far. They have no idea the lengths I'll go to protect what is mine. And Lucas? He's mine. They...read more

  • Tate James

    They say to keep your enemies close and mine are all around me. At the heart of it are four dangerously gorgeous men. The man who wants to light my darkness and already paid the price for loving me. The man who can handle my power and loves every dark inch of me. The man who has been my closest companion and now threatens to upend our carefully balanced world in pursuit of me. But the fourth man is probably the most terrifying. He wants to take the others away. He wants to tear the spinal column out my empire. Destroy my businesses. Destroy me. Why? Because the man who should have stayed dead wants me and he will stop at nothing until he's carved out my bloody, beating heart and...read more

  • James Tate Hill

    At age sixteen, James Tate Hill was diagnosed with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy, a condition that left him legally blind. After high-school friends stopped calling and a disability counselor advised him to aim for Cs in his classes, he used his remaining blurry peripheral vision to pretend he could still see. Feigning eye contact, memorizing common routes, filling shelves with paperbacks he read via tape cassettes, he organized his life around passing for sighted. A wealth of pop-culture knowledge allowed him to steer conversations from what he couldn't see. For fifteen years, Hill hid his blindness from friends, colleagues, and lovers, even convincing himself that if he stared long...read more
