A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Winning what you want may cost you everything you love
They were never meant to be together. As a general's daughter, seventeen-year-old Kestrel enjoys an extravagant and privileged life. Arin has nothing but the clothes on his back. Then Kestrel makes an impulsive decision that binds Arin to her. Though they try to fight it, they can't help but fall in love. In order to be together, they must betray their people . . . but to be loyal to their country, they must betray each other.
Set in a new world, The Winner's Curse is a story of rebellion, duels, ballroom dances, wicked rumors, dirty secrets, and games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.

I rarely write reviews, but this book was so good, I couldn't put it down. The heroine is admirable and the romance is sweet without being inappropriate. I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel!
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Amazing book, amazing plot, amazing characters, amazing series!
It's definitely a 5/5 star book, and although I'd love to go into detail with every reason why you should pick it up, I'd really not do it justice. This book (and its sequel) is devastatingly beautiful, and simply devastating. It shocks, it keeps you reeled in, and it makes you hunger for so much more.
