KINGS, QUEENS and PAWNS
"The Chessboard is the world, the pieces are the phenomena of the universe, the rules of the game are what we call the laws of nature and the player on the other side is hidden from us" - Thomas Huxley
The second book in 'The Chess Peace' series unlocks hidden doors the Kingston's didn't know existed. Doors they will go to extremes to keep locked.
The Kingston's find themselves on the chessboard of life. Friends, foes and family each vie for the title of the 'King.' Each player comes face to face with shrouded demons from the past merely masquerading. As the game intensifies, each will find themselves on the cusp of being in check. For one of the Kingston's, this could mean check mate.
Socialite Celia Banks-Kingston reunites with her former lover, Antony Basile, while in London. Little does Celia know that Antony is nothing more than a clever diversion. His partner, Sara Robin Kent, Celia's nemeses, travels to New York, where she sets out to destroy the Kingston's with the help of Antony. That is, if he doesn't have a change of heart.
Pierce Kingston spirals out of control after learning that his fiancé, Kim Duquette, is in a coma. Even in a catatonic state, she isn't safe from the vengeance of her ex lover, Jake Montrose. Jake and Pierce's ex girlfriend, Casey Taylor, devise their own plan to gain what they both want.
Everyone is a player. Everyone is vying to be crowned King. But in all games, there is a winner and a loser. Who will come out on top? It's hard to tell when everyone is hiding behind a mask. Everyone has something to hide and they will go to great lengths to keep from having the masks stripped away.
Social status proves to be harder to maintain when you have everything to lose.
The board is set. The players are in place. Let the game commence...
