After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual. 

This year, it is my turn. 

My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s son—my soon-to-be husband—and restore the Westfall family to power. 

But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy.

Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him…


Character Name: Bishop Lattimer

Age: 18

Family: Father, President Matthew Lattimer; mother, Erin Lattimer


--Ivy Westfall

--Being outdoors


--Water (the river and the idea of the ocean)

--Listening to Ivy speak her mind and watching her find her voice



--The fence around Westfall

--The idea of one day being President of Westfall

--Confined spaces

--Showing emotion to those he doesn’t know well


Bishop is calm, thoughtful and patient, especially with Ivy. He doesn’t agree with all of his father’s policies, but he also understands that those policies have helped keep people alive. He’s not opposed to things changing in Westfall, but he knows there are no easy answers. He struggles with his father’s expectations and his mother’s distance and Ivy is the first person he’s been able to truly confide in and trust.
