deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only
one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets
they ever existed.

sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and
Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground
organization working to systematically take down the government. At

out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper’s true
identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion….
Until the government posts its most-wanted list, and their number one suspect is Ember herself.
Orders are shoot to kill,
and soldiers are cleared to fire on suspicion alone. Suddenly Ember
can’t even step onto the street without fear of being recognized, and
“laying low” is a joke. Even members of the Resistance are starting to
look at her sideways.
With Chase urging her to run, Ember must decide: Go into hiding…or fight back?

angry men. Nothing can squash her desire to write for a big city
newspaper. A letter and love token from Uncle Chester's old flame in San
Francisco fuels that desire and Hattie jumps at the opportunity to get
there by working as a seamstress for a traveling acting troupe. This

in the process, help her learn more about herself. But Hattie must first
tell Charlie that she will not join him in Seattle. Even though her
heart approves of Charlie's plan for their marriage, her mind fears that
saying yes to him would be saying no to herself. Hattie holds her own
in the big city, literally pitching her way to a byline, and a career
that could be even bigger than Nellie Bly's. But can making headlines
compensate for the pain of betrayal and lost love? Hattie must dig deep
