    Emery
    There are some things you just don’t do, and falling for a man like Wyatt James is one of them.
    The man is obviously too old for me, far too experienced, and as unattainable as the stars in the sky. Yet, I can’t stop the fluttering of excitement low in my belly every time he looks my way, or this incessant need I have to be near him.
    Falling for Wyatt is easy. It’s everything that comes after that’s hard. Sometimes, the choice to stay with the man you love is out of your hands. Sometimes, the past mistakes of other people can leave an impact, even generations later. Sometimes, trying to be with the man you love can only end in heartbreak.
    Sometimes, I don’t care.

    Wyatt
    There are very few things in my life I can’t control. Loving Emery is one of them. What started as a chance meeting turned into a defining moment I can never turn back from. There’s no denying that this tiny girl got to me in ways no one else has ever done before. Falling for her is easy. It’s trying to convince her to stay that’s hard. Sometimes, love isn’t enough. Sometimes, the past mistakes of other people can take away the one thing you cherish most. Sometimes, stories are written down to end in tragedy.
    Sometimes, I don’t care.

    Cassius is the ill-fated captain of the governor’s guard tasked with escorting the Lady Aurelia and her unpleasant aunt to the governor’s estate. Since the soothsayer Tullia foretold an early death for him, Cassius wants nothing more than to keep his hands busy with labor and his heart free from any connections to the world he believes he will be leaving soon. As they work through a series of misfortunes on the road to the governor’s province, the words of the soothsayer start to make sense, and together they find the courage to allow their true destiny to unfold.

Love is never simple, especially when the world’s watching. How much are two people willing to expose for a chance at a true happily ever after?
