The Vanity of Roses by Lily White

Title: The Vanity of Roses
Author: Lily White
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 25, 2020


Callan Rose.
That hadn’t always been his name.
When we were children, he was nothing more than a servant boy in my family.

He was an amusement to me.
A nobody.
A weak soul who refused to fight back.
It was so easy to take advantage.

But then my father died, and I was stolen. The family moved on without me. Until I was penniless with no place to go.

I returned to the Rose Estate not knowing Callan was the head of it.

He’d honed his body and temper in the underground fighting ring. The scars only made him more beautiful.

Now I’m trapped by a seductively dark man who has nothing but vengeance running through his veins.

I’d always wanted him to fight back, but you know what they say:

Be careful what you wish for.





“Me,” she laughed, “jealous of you?”

Her gaze dragged down me with disgust I hadn’t seen since we were kids. “You don’t have to worry about that, Callan, you don’t have a single thing that I want. You’re nothing more than a pathetic excuse for a man, a Rose in name and nothing-“

I was across the room and on her before she could finish the thought, a surprised shriek muffled behind the hand I clapped over her mouth while my boots ground the broken glass into the floor. 

Lifting her with just my palm against her chin, I grinned when her bare feet kicked, her heels thudding against the wall.

Mouth to her ear, my words came out on a dark hiss. 

“Keep talking, brat. I haven’t seen you like this since we were kids. What were you going to say to me? That I’m worthless? That you’re somehow better than me?”

The scruff of my jaw scratched her skin, my free hand sliding up the inside of her thigh.

“Please say those things,” I crooned, my voice so deep I knew it vibrated against her bones. “I’ve always wanted to take this pretty little body while you’re abusing me with your words.”

Releasing her chin, I caught her and spun her toward the wall, my body trapping hers, my hand flipping her skirt above her waist.

My mouth was to her ear again, my heart thumping in time with the angry beat of her breath. 

“And what’s messed up is you like this. I should have done it a long time ago.”

I’ve got a problem. A big muscly problem, with icy blue eyes, long dark hair, and tight leather pants.

Keryth is the Night Realm king. My father’s greatest enemy. And my fated mate.

It isn’t easy being a fae princess of the Day Realm. Our kingdom has suffered hardships, but if my father won’t approve of the mating bond with Keryth, they’ll be putting another body in a casket—mine. If we’re kept apart, we’ll both die. Not to be dramatic or anything. Destiny just doesn’t like to be denied, and our sanity will wither away if we don’t give in.

Too bad my father doesn’t care about that. His solution is to lock me away forever.

When Keryth comes to rescue me, I know we can take on anything as long as we’re together. But old rivalries die hard, and the past sins of our families come back to haunt us, affecting our future and the ones we love the most.








When I pulled Kirian from the icy waters of the creek behind my house, we were just twelve years old. As he looked in my direction with unseeing lavender eyes, I quickly realized our age was just about the only thing we had in common. He spoke with an accent, he had pointy ears, and he was so beautiful it made my heart ache. Oh, and he claimed to be a fae prince cursed by witches who stole his sight.

I thought he was crazy from hypothermia. Turns out, he wasn’t, and for some reason he keeps coming back. But a day in my world is a year in his. Every time I see him, he’s older. Wiser. Hotter.

Over the past six years, I’ve tried not to fall in love with him because the terms of the curse are clear: If he doesn’t wait for his fated mate in all ways, including an innocent (or not-so-innocent) kiss, he’ll be blind forever.

So when Kirian kisses me and pulls me through the portal to his realm, I make it my mission to do some damage control. It’d be a whole lot easier if he wasn’t determined to marry me... And if someone wasn’t trying to murder me every step of the way.
