The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty––because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.
Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.
Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence . . . and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.
Why I’m Crushing:
This cover definitely reminds me of The Selection covers, but I actually like this one more. I think it is because of the gem that frames it. The cover is very sparkly and beautiful and the gem reminds me of both a diamond and a crystal rose and I love how you can see her reflected so many times in the facets. I like the font and the curls, but I kind of wished they had used a different one since even this makes me think of The Selection. It is still such a lovely, lovely cover! What do you guys think of this cover? Feel free to link up in the comments with any Cover Crushes you may have 🙂
