Starlight [On Hiatus]
Being a lady is something that Stella Maverick was never taught as a young girl, since her parents were so focused on perfecting her eldest sister, Mavis. She spent most of her years with her fathers replacement son Breanna Maverick, the second eldest sister, and best friend, Matthew Jefferson, learning how to be a rough-it-up girl. Yet even without her femininity and etiquette, she still catches many eyes.
Theodore Walker is one of those, and a very suitable husband in her parents' eyes. Heir to the wealthy and respected Walker family, handsome and charming, and has had his eyes on Stella ever since they were kids. He requests to court her and win her hand in marriage, which sends her parents over the moon with joy. The only thing stopping Stella from accepting is her new-found interest in another.
In fact, her interest is with another Walker, Theodore's younger brother and rival for the inheritance of the Walker family fortunes, Ezekiel Walker. Hidden out of sight of the public for years by request of his envious elder brother, he has finally come back out into the spotlight with one goal in mind: Marry Stella Maverick, the one person who has ever paid him any attention in spite of his brother's requests for her not to.
Stella's heart is torn two ways - follow her parents' wishes and marry Theodore, or follow her heart's wishes and marry Ezekiel.
