Wonderful writing that's lush and evocative and pulls you right in. Ashu stole the show for me: I was so drawn into his personal story as well as his emotional turmoil about the mysterious Kamal. A great addition to the Spice and Secrets series!

“Women helped each other in ways small and large every day, without thinking, and that was what kept them going even when the world came up with new and exciting ways to crush them.”
Alyssa Cole, Let Us Dream

“People focused so much on the prince slipping on Cinderella’s lost shoe that they didn’t realize the real happily ever after was the moment she realized she was brave enough to go to the damned ball alone in the first place. “I’m not waiting around for some fuckboy to bring me a shoe. I’m here, working for you. I’m finding my own shoe,”
Alyssa Cole, A Duke by Default

“How do you like your dukes? Grumpy? Tortured? Alpha, beta, or alpha in the streets, beta in the sheets?”
