A terrible, terrible redesign.

In order to be together, they must betray their people . . . but to be loyal to their country, they must betray each other.Set in a new world, The Winner’s Curse is a story of rebellion, duels, ballroom dances, wicked rumors, dirty secrets, and games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
