Summary

In the Royal States of America, magic rules all, but life - and love - always finds a way.

Born without magic, Mackenzie Little has few prospects. In a futile attempt to break her out of the null caste, her mother ropes her into participating in a charity auction, where anything can be bought with enough money. She never expected her ex-boss, Dylan Mason, an elite with a love of driving her crazy, would buy her company. For a day, she's happy to live a fairy tale. Nine months later, despite all their precautions, Mackenzie's little miracle is born.

Armed only with Texas pride and New York viciousness, Mackenzie fights through hell or high water to protect her tiny family of two from a society obsessed with magic. The last thing she needs is to land in the middle of a mess doomed to make her, a null, the grand prize of a battle between royals. 

Contains mature themes.

Love this author

Irreverent, funny, fast paced. Female lead who is a force of nature and flawed at the same time. Great alternative USA world building.

I love Susan Copperfield's books. This is the first of this series and my favourite of the series so far but I've re-read and enjoyed all three of them a number of times. Now I have the pleasure of listening to it in the car too. Thank you!

I was worried about how good a job the narrator would do but she's good!

BTW this is a prolific writer who writes as RJ Blain and other names too.

PS Don't get bent out of shape by the apparent acceptance of child marriage. This is further explored and dealt with as the series progresses and is a perfectly acceptable use of the age old practice of dealing with a real word issue in a fictional universe.

Nice clean romantic fantasy

Lovely romantic fantasy book. Story kept me not so much as intrigued but cheering for the couple. It’s nice to have a romance that’s fun and sexy without the obscenity common with today’s novels. I’m not a prude but want to hear a story not consistent sex scenes

Amazing! Highly recommended.

This story was smart, funny, socially conscious and most importantly a true love story. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The narration was superb. Five stars! I am surprised more people haven’t selected it.

A good new romance read

This is not the urban fiction the cover lead you to believe. This is a promise to a new romance series, with magic as ruling classes.
