Summary
  • For a select group of girls, the Glittering Court offers a shot at a life theyve only ever dreamed of, one of luxury, glamour, and leisure. To high-born Adelaide, whose wealthy family is forcing her into a loveless marriage, the Glittering Court represents something else: the chance to chart her own destiny, and adventure in an unspoiled, prosperous new land across the sea. After a chance meeting with the dazzling Cedric Thorn, Adelaide poses as a servant to join the crop of impoverished girls he promises to transform into proper ladies. But her familiarity with upper class life comes with a price: she must hide her identity from her new friends, mysterious refugee Mira and fiery former laundress Tamsin, and most importantly, from Cedric himselfeven though shes falling in love with him. Everything begins to crumble when Cedric discovers Adelaides ruse, and she catches the eye of a powerful young governor, who wants her for a wife. She didnt leave the gilded cage of her old life behind just to become someone else's property. But nothing is as dauntingor as wonderfulas the potent, forbidden attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. One that, if acted on, would make them both outcasts in a wild, dangerous, uncharted world, and possibly lead them to their deaths

Adelaide solo desea abandonar los palacios refinados y llenos de oro de Osfrid para empezar una nueva vida entre los bosques inexplorados de Adoria. Pero para ello deberá unirse a la Corte Reluciente, que es tanto una escuela como un negocio diseñado para transformar a las niñas pobres en damas de clase alta para luego poder casarlas a través de matrimonios concertados con ricos poderosos del Nuevo Mundo. Adelaide deberá esconder su origen real y al mismo tiempo evitar un matrimonio forzado en una sociedad en la que el papel de la mujer parece relegado solo al de esposa.
