At the marketplace, on a whim, she purchases Arin, a slave that she is strangely drawn to. What Kestrel doesn't know is that Arin isn't just anyone - he's a fierce Herrani loyalist and has a plan of his own to free his people. Arin is also drawn to Kestrel and it's not long before their growing love must be hidden. Both must now weigh the responsibilities they have for their people against the connection they share with each other. The fate of the Empire rests on Kestrel's shoulders, while the fate of the revolution and freedom of his people rests on Arin's. And...both are beginning to realize that winning what you want may cost you everything you love.
The Winners Curse is the first in a (currently) 4-book series and has been nominated for the 2016-2017 Young Adult Golden Sower Award.
