Bestselling author Jennifer Estep continues her Gargoyle Queen series with a highly anticipated sequel to Capture the Crown: Gemma Ripley must protect her kingdom and herself from threats of war, assassination, and a dangerous attraction that could break her reign . . . and shatter her heart. To most, Crown Princess Gemma Ripley is a "Glitzma," a spoiled, pampered princess. But in reality, Gemma is a powerful mind magier and a clever spy. Her current mission? To get to the bottom of her enemy''s plot to somehow use magical tearstone arrows to conquer the kingdom of Andvari. Along with her beloved gargoyle, Grimley, and her fellow spy, Reiko Yamato, Gemma travels to Caldwell Castle to attend a trade Summit between the various kingdoms. Among the other royals in attendance is Queen Maeven Morricone of Morta and her son, Prince Leonidas--Gemma''s attractive, charming, and dangerous nemesis. When Maeven invokes an arcane tradition, Gemma once again finds herself thrown together with Leo and battling her growing feelings for the enemy prince. But when a series of deadly attacks shatters the Summit''s peaceful negotiations, it becomes clear to Gemma that someone wants to tear the royals down off their thrones--and that this cunning enemy just might succeed . .
