FALL: Ever-practical Nidhi never wanted to break any hearts. Everything was in place: a steady boyfriend and summer plans at an elite pastry school in Paris. Then a handsome construction worker and a longing for her homeland rattle her sense of complacency.

WINTER: A girl of (too?) many talents, Avani is finally focusing on one thing: planning a ball to honor a family member. But blizzards and cheese platters send her cross-country skiing straight into the arms of a boy—the one she’s been avoiding since she accidentally flaked on their date.

SPRING: Shy Sirisha wishes she could talk to girls, but she’s always felt safest hiding behind her camera. When a traveling theater troupe brings a pretty thespian into the picture, Sirisha flounders with bad pickup lines and too-pink lipstick.

SUMMER: Hopeless romantic Rani is ecstatic when not one, not two, but THREE potential boyfriends arrive at the inn. If only flowers and over-the-top romantic gestures could help her decide who to bring to the Songbird Inn’s event of the year.

Four sisters, four seasons…and plenty of breathtaking kisses in the Northwest drizzle.

In an isolated England cut off from the outside world and plagued by a vengeful, godlike figure, Anya Astraea and her twin sister Ilva have been brought up for sacrifice. Every eighteen years, a girl from their village must go to the cruel god of the mountain and offer a piece of herself to placate him, lest the country fall into disaster and ruin. When Ilva volunteers to become the latest in a long line of girls to leave the village, Anya prays for her safe return.

Her prayers are denied.

With her sister dead and her world on the brink of collapse, Anya volunteers to make a journey of her own to visit the god of the mountain. But unlike her sister and the many girls that came before her, sacrifice is the furthest thing from her mind. Anya has no intention of giving anything to the god of the mountain, nor of letting any other girl do so ever again.
Anya Astraea has not set out to placate a god. She’s set out to kill him.

Vengeance, however, is anything but straightforward, especially when she meets an ill-mannered thief who possesses unnatural abilities. Anya’s feelings for the boy soon overtake her desire to keep her plans hidden, and they join forces. But the thief has secrets of his own, and if Anya can’t find a way to unlock them, it may not just mean danger for her…but for every girl in England.
