Shatter

Danica got screwed over by her supplier/gangster contact, and now she has to attend her own wedding–marrying the one man she’s more afraid of than anyone else. She will have to be the Queen, after all.

After her wedding, she’s still trying to figure out how to win her love–Saber’s–freedom from the lying gangster, when she stumbles on some even stronger reasons to stay, and really become the Queen she needs to be–for the good of her people, and everyone else effected by Sonoma-Versaille’s forays into technology and medicine.

Book two in the Glitter series, and it’s every bit as good as the first! Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette era court intrigue in a future full of style over substance. Fast paced, great characters, and wildly entertaining. Love it.

Excerpt from Review of Glitter, Pop Culture Beast, 2016:

Things aren’t looking up for Danica. She’s engaged to a man she hates (who also happens to both a murderer and the King), her every move is monitored by a computerized system designed to keep track of everyone, and she’s made plans to run away.

Once the smuggler she’s hired to help her realizes who she is, the price for her freedom goes up–

dramatically. She has no idea how she’ll raise the funds, until she catches her father buying undetectable designer drugs from a courier in the palace she’s never seen before. In the drug’s raw form, it sparkles like glitter–and that’s when she has an idea for raising the five million Euros she needs to potentially save her life. Click to continue
