The first line(s):
Bound (The Guardians, #1) by M.J. Stevens
‘No good deed ever goes unpunished, Mellea…’
Mellea Wendorn hasn’t exactly had a normal life. Misfortune seems to follow her, and her family, wherever she goes.
However, when Mellea stops to assist a mysterious young man suddenly her prior hardships seem trivial.
His name is Leo. He is a Successor, a child of the Guardians of Selestia.
He is royalty.
He is handsome.
And he wants Mellea completely to himself.
Unable to escape the Guardian's laws, Mellea must learn the ways of the royals. She is convinced her life can’t get much worse. But when a timeworn Guardian enemy arises from the shadows, Mellea must make a choice that will change her destiny forever. (Blurb via Goodreads)
"No good deed ever goes unpunished, Mellea."
That was the answer my father gave me when I was seven, the day I asked why we had to move away. That was the answer he continued to give me each time we had to leave again.
I was interested. And that first line, the one about good deeds? That theme comes up a lot.
