Caroline I: Emergency Call
Caroline Malveaux, the eldest daughter of Louisiana’s richest family, has it all: money, power, and a bright future.

Caroline has six months to bring down a network of hunters or die. So decrees the seneschal of the city, Philip Maldonato.

It would be so much easier to betray the seneschal and his prince. What have they done for her?
