Her father failed in his mission to take control from the Commander, a defeat that has cost Jade her life. She will die as punishment. Now she belongs to the Commander’s son—as his wife. Knowing his intent is to quietly kill her in revenge, Jade’s every move is calculated to survive—until she learns her death ensures the safety of her father and her entire town.

Hi, I’m Jade Jareau. Well, Jade Jareau Diamond, I suppose. I was just married to the Commander’s son, Roan, and I’m still getting used to the new name. Honestly, I’m pretty worried at this point, but I can trust you, can’t I? I’m pretty sure Roan and his father are going to try to kill me in revenge for my father trying to take the Commander’s power away. I’m all alone, trapped with a man I’m positive is going to make my death look like an accident. I won’t make it easy for him or the Commander though. I’ll play their game, and while I probably won’t win it, I’m not going to die without a fight.
The idea of having life planned out for you almost sounds like it could be very helpful-you know where you’re going and what you’re working toward. Had my father or my boss or even some of my friends had a guiding hand in my life, I imagine it could have been quite helpful. But to have my life dictated by Commander Robert Diamond? Well, if I weren’t set to die anyway, I might want to be dead. Knowing you’re supposed to die–that you’re going to die–its a very hard thing to cope with. I plan to fight it by making Roan fall in love with me and making everything difficult for him and his family, but I also worry what the cost of that will be. If the Commander can’t kill me to hurt my father, what else will he do to strike out at us? Have you ever felt trapped and you had potential options for escape, but no matter what you chose, someone else would pay the price? I can’t let others pay the price for my life, which leaves me without many options. If it were just about me, that would be one thing, but there are so many more people at risk here.
The Commander and Roan are trying to murder me quietly. Even Alice hates me and is trying to make me miserable. I’ve never met a more horrific family. Their only goal is to murder, get revenge, and rule in complete power. I have nothing good to say about them. Quite frankly, I hate telling people my new last name is Diamond…not that it matters, the entire country knows at this point.
I worry so much about others that sometimes I don’t see the things right in front of my own face. I feel like I have to protect everyone and I forget about myself.
From what I can tell, he has a few secrets he has hidden from his father. He’s an artist, believe it or not–and a good one at that! It’s amazing how a would-be-murderer also has the ability to create such beautiful things. He can give life through his hands and take life through them. If I weren’t so fearful of him, I’d find him fascinating.
I love the times my father would sit down with me in our house at the end of a long day and tell me stories about my mother. They were better than any story he could read me from a book. Having that time with him and being able to feel closer to my mother was the best thing in the world. The second best would have to be my time spent at the lake…or the library!
Compassion. At least, I like to think I’m compassionate toward others.
Maybe a puppy? I’m not really sure. Having attachments as a child wasn’t really a good thing, especially since we didn’t know what was going to happen to me or if we’d have to pick up and run (as if we ever had any hope of that.)
Everyone thinks I’m so kind and good, but the truth is, I know how to survive. I’m willing to do what it takes. I will happily manipulate Roan Diamond and mess with his family, and if causing them grief is the last thing I do, so be it.
I love the old books and fairytales. Princesses who don’t need a prince to save them, but find happiness with them, and live and rule together as a team…those are my favorites. I love reading about mermaids and princesses who were to be married off but saved themselves instead. Strong and fierce, but kind of heart and respected by all, with men who love them and compliment them. I’d live in the library in town if I could!
My father and my boss, Mr. Eroh. They’ve taken such good care of me and trained me to survive. I also really love spending time with Annie over in the bakery!
Jade is a pretty short name, so I never really had any nicknames. My father sometimes calls me his “baby girl” if that counts!
My mother left me letters. They are the most precious thing I could own.
A pardon from this death sentence would be lovely. But if I can’t have that, I’d settle for a book I haven’t read before!
Read, probably. Spend time in town. I’d go see Mr. Eroh in his shop in the morning, have lunch with my father at the cafe, then go down my the lake to sit and read by the water and take a swim. I might walk around to the different shops before closing and see what they have. I’d cook dinner for my father at home and then read until bed time. It would be lovely.
Roan and I recently took a little trip around the town. I admit I had ulterior motives, but it was actually more fun than I thought it would be.
I love fashion and being creative. I sometimes sew my own clothes. I tend to stay extremely quiet about it, I think only my father and maybe mr. Eroh have any idea. I love it though. It’s a creative outlet for me. Repurposing things is fun and I love bringing new life to things.
Well, I’m married to Roan Diamond, but I don’t know if you can really call that a relationship, especially since I was given no choice. He’s trying to kill me, so…you want to guess what he’s like?
I’m terribly allergic to scented things. Candles, flowers, air fresheners…when I get around them I end up having flu-like symptoms for a week-two weeks. When I was a little girl, my mother used to wear this perfume…when she died, I was no longer exposed to it and when I was finally around scents again, I had become intolerant to them. My father walked me into a candle shop to pick a few up because there was supposed to be a bad storm coming in and I ended up incredibly sick. It took days to figure out why. We went back to test our theory and it took exactly one sneeze for him to drag me out of there so fast that I tripped and sent a basket of food flying all over the road. Annie saw me and came rushing over. I must have looked like I was about to cry because she pulled out a scone she was carrying from her delivery basket, and she’s been making me scones and muffins ever since. She always knows exactly what I want without ever asking.
Thank you, K. M. Robinson, for being here with Jade! So lovely to have you on my blog again! Maybe next time we could have both Jade and Roan 😉
