WHAT IF BEAUTY WAS A CURRENCY?
In the war-torn Great South, young women are selected annually by the Gentlewomen of their state to become Beautiful Ones—women who, in possession of exceptional beauty, are lifted out of poverty, at the cost of their free will. For a young woman named Kelendra Byron, this has been her life's ambition. But as the day of her Procession draws near, just what will she do?
THE BEAUTIFUL ONES
Book 1 of The Beautiful Ones trilogy
My mother once said that only the Beautiful Ones survive. This is because, in the war-torn Great South, beauty is a currency, and to have it means you will never have to worry about a thing.
The only problem is: beauty is judged by our capital’s Gentlewomen, and there is no guarantee that we will past their test.
Every year, the Gentlewomen of the capital leave the Glittering City to oversee the annual Procession. They travel settlement to settlement selecting girls, aged sixteen and older, to become Beautiful Ones. If chosen, we will be lifted into a life of luxury, but the cost is our free will.

THE WAR OUTSIDE
I have accomplished the goal of my lifetime. I have become a Beautiful One.
But it is not at all what I expected. Between the glitz, the glam, the fame, fortune, and my recent wedding, it’s almost impossible to believe that a civil war rages beyond the capitol city’s walls, and that my life was nearly taken because of it. This is why, the day after the attempt on my life, I choose to designate my Purpose to the great war.
There’s no guarantee that my words will change anything. But as my presence within the Glittering City grows, it becomes quickly apparent that I am in danger… and that no one, not even my government, can save me.
