Set in a tyrannical dystopia, follow Carson Owens as he navigates the rocky terrain of forbidden love, irreparable heartbreak, and ghastly secrets that could turn the world upside down.

Author: Kaitlyn Deann

Unravel (Book 1)

The brand of Anem is an ancient imprint that marks the bodies of lovers. Carson Owens shares a brand with no other than the duchess, Margaret James. With her rank and reputation on the line, they will do everything in their power to hide the brand that binds their souls.
Things unexpectedly go sideways when Carson is arrested and the brand discovered. Unknowingly, he has hurt and embarrassed an old flame, Gina Blake, with the discovery of his sin. Suffering more than enough grief in her short life, Gina wants nothing more than to leave behind her past life and prays desperately for an escape.
Amidst the fumbles of his love life, questions emerge regarding Carson’s family and the adults of their world—those who’ve been through the mysterious Ritual on their eighteenth birthday, the ones they call Matures. More may be revealed than anyone is prepared to handle.

Gina Blake is missing. While gossips say she ran away, Carson knows she would never—not on the night before their wedding.As search parties scour the area, Carson wakes from an oddly realistic dream of Gina, an eight-point star scarring his wrist.

But where can he turn for answers?Miles out in the Glassy Sea, Gina awakes from the same dream with a matching scar. Her captors, aware what the mark means, must break her soul’s connection to Carson to keep their home a secret. Distressingly, the process of splitting two divinely merged souls could kill them.Meanwhile, Margaret begins her apprenticeship under her mother in the Celestial Court. Thrust into this new political culture, she meets the top political leaders of their world, the Grand Elder and Grand Advisor. Margaret overhears their hopes for Carson and Gina’s vessels—using the Ritual to achieve their goal. Desperate to save her friends, she reluctantly makes a deal with Duke Gabriel Young for information on the Ritual in exchange for her hand in marriage.
