Queen of Nothing
"I had been in New Orleans for barely a week and already I found myself embroiled in some nefarious scheme beyond my comprehension."
An ambitious girl on a quest for power.
A doomed prince who wears his heart on his sleeve.
A deadly game of alliances.
An otherworldly evil that threatens to unravel everything.
Vampires rule the world, and Sabine Ambrose would like nothing more than to become one. Born into wealth and blessed with beauty, there was little she couldn't possess. Or so she thought, until a competition to win the heart of a vampire king proved her wrong.
Disgraced and defeated, she flees to a new kingdom to escape the bitter memories of her failure. Though she is an outsider, she finds herself in familiar territory. In order to fulfill her selfish desires, she must once again seduce a man she does not love. Only this time, it's not to become his bride, but to destroy him.
Tristan Sinclair, descendant of the South's King Sheridan, was born with a target on his back. His relatives envy his position and want nothing more to get rid of him, employing Sabine to do the task. But Tristan is set to inherit an even darker legacy than vampirism, for his bloodline is plagued by a mysterious curse that promises to end his life before any jealous courtier hopes to try.
Sabine is willing to risk everything in order to get what she wants. But can she emerge victorious when the silent war between New Orleans's elite is deadlier than she predicted?
