My heart skids to a halt, then races even faster. “Did you just say you love me?”

“Um …” Adam looks startled. “I guess I did.”

My smile is practically taking over my whole face. “So smooth the way you just snuck that in there,” I tease.

His ears are red, but he’s laughing. “That’s me. I’ve got all the smooth moves.”

“I know.” I pull him closer and skim my lips along his neck until I reach his ear. “I love you too.”

Beach, and Rhodes Memorial are entirely real, and if you

An Amazon Bestselling YA Fantasy Series

by Rachel Morgan

Enter a hidden world of magic, mystery, danger, and romance…

Protecting humans from dangerous magical creatures is all in a day’s work for a faerie training to be a guardian. Seventeen-year-old Violet Fairdale knows this better than anyone—she’s about to become the best guardian the Guild has seen in years. That is, until a cute human boy who can somehow see through her faerie glamor follows her into the fae realm. Now she’s broken Guild Law, a crime that could lead to her expulsion.

The last thing Vi wants to do is spend any more time with the boy who got her into this mess, but the Guild requires that she return Nate to his home and make him forget everything he’s discovered of the fae realm. Easy, right? Not when you factor in evil faeries, long-lost family members, and inconvenient feelings of the romantic kind. Vi is about to find herself tangled up in a dangerous plot—and it’ll take all her training to get out alive.
