After Sky’s revelation, Force keeps him on lockdown, sending countless Temple girls his way—and more suitors to Serenity, only for her to rebuff them all. Her most ardent rejection is of Luc, whose heart begins to move in a different direction.
Meanwhile, Bliss is still the Temple’s Yin. She’s a beautiful shell burdened by the ghosts of an abusive childhood—ones she believes she can never conquer. Yet, Bliss has no desire for a relationship with anyone, least of all the sister who escaped. But as the days pass, she finds herself growing closer to Serenity and Serafina despite her reluctance. With swan-carved corpses continuing to drop, Bliss realizes she is starting to act—and feel—more like a sister and less like Yin.
When Bliss and Serenity discover a dangerous secret that could destroy their family, they make an oath to keep it. To hide what they’ve uncovered, Serenity must play Yang to perfection and risk losing her heart forever—while Bliss faces her own greatest challenge of opening her heart and letting love inside.
In this mesmerizing conclusion, the Temple twins must unite in what becomes a test of their strength, their commitment, and ultimately…their hearts.
