Sneaking out of the palace wasn’t one of Aniri’s best ideas. But she’s the Third Daughter of the Queen of Dharia—zero responsibilities and zero royal duties. She’s just the backup daughter, in case her older sisters’ arranged marriages—to take the crown or broker an alliance—don’t quite work out.
Violet Calloway knows who she is. From an early age, she was taught how to pick the right clothes, the right job, and, most importantly, the right man. What she wasn’t taught was how to be happy. But when her father dies, leaving her with a ramshackle building and the sparks of an idea for a new life as a bakery owner, Violet jumps at the chance. When her infuriatingly sexy new contractor shows up, sinking in her life savings and disappointing her family becomes the least of Violet’s worries.
