The Midnight Dance
Swoon Reads | Macmillan

When the music ends, the dance begins.

Seventeen-year-old Penny is a lead dancer at the Grande Teatro, a finishing school where she and eleven other young women are training to become the finest ballerinas in Italy. Tucked deep into the woods, the school is overseen by the mysterious and handsome young Master who keeps the girls ensconced in the estate – and in the only life Penny has never known.

But when flashes of memories, memories of a life very different from the one she thinks she’s been leading, start to appear, Penny begins to question the Grand Teatro and the motivations of the Master. With a kind and attractive kitchen boy, Cricket, at her side, Penny vows to escape the confines of her school and the strict rules that dictate every step she takes. But at every turn, the Master finds a way to stop her, and Penny must find a way to escape the school and uncover the secrets of her past before it’s too late.

The King's Questioner
Coming 02/19/19
Swoon Reads | Macmillan

Kalen has been blessed with a gift. He's a mental picklock, employed by the king to uncover the secrets held in the minds of criminals. When the king's son, Cirrus, falls into a coma, the king enlists Kalen's help to dive into the prince's mind. While in Cirrus' thoughts, Kalen discovers a heavily locked secret, one hidden even from the prince himself. Cirrus has a sister, banished at birth because of her own magical abilities, an act which sets a prophecy in motion.

With the very kingdom at stake, Kalen and Cirrus team up with Kalen's silver-haired friend, Luna, to find the princess. The travel is precarious, and they quickly learn that rescuing Reign is only the first of their problems ... siphoned magick, a hidden enemy, and a reluctant princess ... to name a few. A battle of wits, willpower, and magick will be fought across multiple kingdoms—and its very outcome will determine the kingdom's fate.
