An heir to the throne...

Tessana Allisand might have proven that she’s the oldest living daughter of the dead king of Elysia, and that she’s the rightful heir to the Seat of Power, but that doesn’t mean she gets to be queen . . . yet. Forced to wait until her twenty-first birthday, Tess is supposed to be learning how to navigate court life and all the ways she will one day rule the realm. But circumstances and her nefarious uncle keep getting in the way of her education.

A kingdom in turmoil...

While Tess is pampered with the luxuries of castle life, the rest of the kingdom suffers under the oppressive thumb of the Ring of Shadows. And while no other ruler seems all that concerned with the evil rebels intent on destroying everyone and everything, Tess alone must find a way to stand up to the dark magic threatening to choke the life from her precious kingdom.

A love shaken by distance...

Tessana and Taelon found each other in the depths of the Blood Woods. And just like when they were children, their affection for each other saved the realm. But now, with separate kingdoms to fight for and royal duties to attend to, life is pushing them in impossibly opposite directions. Tess wants nothing more than for Taelon to be at her side. And yet, she will never ask him to leave his own kingdom for hers. Fate seems determined to keep them apart. But it was love that brought them back together. And love that will defy titles, crowns, and destiny.

Excerpt

“Stranger,” Taelon murmured in that deep rumble that made me warm for entirely different reasons than his parents.

I pulled away from Anatal so I could offer a very proper curtsy. “Rebel.”

His face broke into a tender grin. “It’s good to see you, Tessa. It’s been too long.”

Searching his face for hints about his recent activities, I noticed bags beneath his startling blue eyes and a small cut over his left eyebrow. It was almost healed now, but I wondered what it meant. “Well, we’ll have time to catch up now,” I said brightly, knowing everyone in the room was listening. “Are you planning to stay for the duration of the festivities?”

“For most, yes. I hope you’ll set a dance for me tomorrow evening.” His gaze heated. “Or two.”

“Or all of them,” I said with a dreamy smile. “Since you are no doubt the only one willing to tolerate my clumsy feet.”

He took a step toward me. “If memory serves, my lady, you are too hard on yourself.”

I stared up into his handsome face, his hair slightly disheveled from the journey, his jaw a little darker than normal, and wondered how I could have born these last several months without him nearby. How could either of us tolerate the distance? And how would we go back to separate kingdoms once this pomp was over?

My uncle cleared his throat. It dawned on me that Taelon and I were standing there, staring at each other, in a room full of royals and dignitaries and servants.

“If you’re quite finished,” Tyrn sniped.

(Nine Kingdoms Trilogy #1)

Amazon US

A lost princess…

Tessana Allisand had a family once. A home. A title. A future. Until one night when everything she loved was taken from her. Secreted away to an isolated monastery in the farthest region of the realm, Tess was raised in the silence of monks and the loneliness of tragedy. And there she would have stayed if the dark magic that killed her family hadn’t finally found her.

An impossible quest…

With her identity discovered, Tessana must face the home she fled all those years ago. The Crown of Nine must return to its rightful place and Tess must be the one to carry it across the nine kingdoms. And when she arrives? She’ll need to convince a dying kingdom that the crown that has belonged to one hundred kings should be given to a queen.

A rebellious prince…

Taelon Treskinat was in love once. With a princess. The daughter of a slaughtered king. He risked everything to save her, to make sure she survived. When that same princess tumbles back into his life no longer the scared little girl he remembers from childhood, he must decide where his duty lies. With the girl that will threaten everything he knows and loves. Or the kingdom he will do anything to protect.
