It’s finally time to share the cover for King of Hearts!
The Kings of Karmichael series is a YA rockstar romance series. It’ll be interconnected, but each book is a standalone, featuring each member of the band. If you haven’t seen my Instagram, definitely check it out, because I have adorable chibis of the band members there. They’re amazing!
King of Hearts starts the series off, featuring the heartthrob and lead singer of the Kings, Derrik. Below is the synopsis.
Derrik Tyler has it all. He’s a world-famous rock star with a legion of adoring fans and has obtained teen idol status. He even has a Hollywood starlet who wants nothing more than to be the only girl in his life. It’s a publicity stunt only his band knows about, but that’s not detracting her from trying to turn their fake relationship into a real one. Yep, he has it all. Except for the girl who stole his heart before his life turned into a rock n’ roll rollercoaster.
Zoey Jacobs has been friends with Derrik since middle school. Before the Kings became the hottest band in the world. She even dated Derrik before he was known as the King of Hearts—the biggest teen heartthrob in the last decade. But that’s all in the past. She’s just a few short months away from graduating high school and moving on to college.
When spring break rolls around, Derrik invites Zoey along for the last leg of the band’s tour. What should be an amazing road trip turns into Derrik’s personal mission to win back his first love. But can two people from different worlds reignite a past relationship, or is a teen icon and a future college freshman too big of a gap to cross?

A hat is a very particular article of clothing. Some people think you pick the hat, but that’s not true. The hat picks you. You don’t have to know the right color or the right style. You don’t even have to know the right kind. But when you put it on, you know.
You slide a newsboy cap over your head, and it looks weird. You replace it with a cowboy hat, and though you think you might be able to pull it off, something doesn’t sit right. A fedora slips loosely over your forehead, but you stare in the mirror and know it’s not what you’re looking for.
Then it happens. You pick up a baseball hat and everything just clicks. It’s worn, slightly coming undone at the seams. There’s even some discoloration. But none of that matters. Once you see it you know you’ve found the one.
The instant it touched my lips and tongue I’d never felt anything like it before. I’ve craved things before today. Things people usually take for granted like food and drink. I’ve wanted things, like wishing I could be somewhere else. All different longings, but nothing like this.
I probably should be disgusted. Revolted. My eyes pop open for a moment and though my mouth stays where it is, my eyes roam. I see red. Both literally and physically.
It doesn’t matter if I’m making a mess. I can’t stop myself. Not until Alterion pulls at my hair, forcing me to break away.
Keeping a firm grasp around my hair, parts of which now drip crimson, he inches closer to me. His serrated teeth, what mine look like now, are made visible when he unleashed the sinister smile I’ve grown accustomed to.
“How does it taste?” His words are almost a whisper.
I stare down at the motionless body, still feeling no hint of concern or sorrow. All my emotions are pushed aside, leaving nothing but the craving. I can only utter one word.
