“No matter what, you do not surrender.

Carmen Asbaje only needed two things in her life: her closest friend and her Flamenco shoes. Shelter was optional, and love was a lie used to inflict pain on others. Born with Blood Magic that she wasn’t supposed to have, Carmen lived with fatal secrets. When the fiercely competitive Blood Tournaments drew near, Carmen was forced to meet with the former Tournament Champion, Antonio Castillas, to save her friend’s life. After that meeting, a spark of passion ignited inside of her.

Forbidden infatuation.

When her accidental Blood Magic audition was leaked, Carmen received national attention and was entered into the upcoming Blood Tournament.

What readers are saying about The Gilded Survivor…

★★★★★ “Loved this book! Fantastic characters, great world building, and love the bilingual use throughout the story! I am so happy to find a book with a strong female lead that is POC. To learn new phrases and about a different culture is exciting and I cannot wait to do a reread and get my hands on the second book!”
★★★★★ “First off I absolutely loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. I read it in 2 days. I can’t wait for book 2 to see what happens next.”
★★★★★ “There are not enough strong female characters who are POC.”

“Thirst for power makes people monsters far quicker than the insanity associated with love.”

Running came easy to Carmen. When her hometown was destroyed, she fled. And now she was attempting to vanish under the gaze of the Chancellor of Arrebol. She thought that the most important thing in her life was survival at any costs, but she soon found out being on her own was deadly.
After being captured by a Night Merchant and sold to a faraway land, Carmen managed to escape and return home. But her reprieve is short-lived when it became clear that she would still face the brutality of the Blood Tournament.
To make matters worse, a marriage announcement threatened to shatter any hope of a normal life.

What readers are saying about The Deadliest Game…

★★★★★ “If I had to sum The Deadliest Game into one word, I think simply “tragic” would be fitting. So much happens that turns Carmen’s world upside down that hope does feel lost.”

★★★★★ “All I can say is “ooohh myyyy gooooddd.” I honestly wasn’t sure my emotions could handle this rollercoaster. “

★★★★★ “I really liked the first one but I LOVED this one. “

“The worst part is that I had expected this to end like some ludicrous fairytale. Fairytales were wishful nightmares incarnate.”

With half of the Blood Tournament competitors dead, the stakes for marriage were higher than ever, and Carmen was barely holding on. What she had seen in the volcano carved deep scars inside of her.

In a world where blood was everything, the Chancellor forced Carmen to marry in order to preserve her legendary magic. Fractured trust soured the match, alongside the instruction to produce an heir to her new estate within a year.

When the next year’s tournament arrived, and Carmen was still childless, she was ready for hell to pay. However, the punishment was worse than she could have anticipated.
