The Rose Bargain by Sasha Peyton Smith (HarperTeen)
Bridgerton meets The Selection in a new, romantic young adult fantasy duology from New York Times Best Selling author, Sasha Peyton Smith

When one makes a bargain with the Faerie Queen, one must be prepared to pay the price.

Lady Ivy Benton's sister has ruined her life. When Lydia Benton disappeared, then reappeared, two weeks later, with no memory of where she’d been, she destroyed her family’s reputation and her little sister Ivy’s chances at making a match during the 1848 London social season. Ivy’s only hope is to make a magical bargain clever enough to save both herself and her family from complete ruination. For in the center of London, ensconced in Kensington Palace, lives the immortal Queen Mor, who grants every resident of Britain the opportunity to make one faerie bargain in their lifetime. The bigger the ask, the higher the cost.

As the social season begins, Ivy and the other girls of high society are summoned to the palace for a shocking announcement. This is the season the Queen’s son, Prince Bram, intends to find a wife. In order to ensure fair play and dedicated courtship, girls who wish to be considered must sign a magically binding contract: should they not win the Prince's hand, they will never marry another. Ivy is the first to sign in blood. She has nothing else to lose.

Along with the five other girls who agree to the terms, Ivy moves onto the grounds of Kensington palace for the London social season, ready to fight for the Prince's hand. The competition for the Bram’s time and attention is fierce, but Ivy is keeping her own secrets. She and Prince Emmett, Bram's brother, met by chance months before, and Emmett has promised to help Ivy become the perfect match for Bram, even at the cost of his own growing feelings.

Through a social season of glittering balls, promenades around the park, and sun-soaked regattas, Ivy and Emmett work to uncover what really happened to Ivy's older sister those weeks she disappeared, and the rotten truth of the magical bargains made by their mysterious Queen. But by tugging on a thread that spans beyond their world, they might just unravel a plot that could destroy the whole of England.
