Book three in the epic fantasy romance series, The King's Riders!
She's on the run, but doesn't know it...
Raised in the security of the king's castle, Lady Elissa Durroc remembers nothing of the death of her family or how she survived it. As an elemental mage with control over all four elements, her powers are rare. And coveted by dark magic. None darker than the mage who killed her parents.
When the king learns the mage knows Elissa is alive, he orders her to Greenwald under the guise of choosing a husband. Her protection falls to Sir Alasdair Kearney, a knight whose prowess on the battlefield is rivaled only by his appetite for women.
Alasdair's not sure what to make of being a glorified nursemaid, despite Elissa's beauty and intriguing magic. The rogue has rules. Rules that don't involve being tempted by his noble charge.
Elissa is drawn to the knight, even though he's not on her list of suitors. Can she guard her heart and her magic? And when the dark mage comes after her, will it be too late to matter?
Book Two of the Fantasy Romance Series, The King's Riders!
Leargan Tegran, Captain of Greenwald's personal guard, is an honorable knight. When his king commands him to wed Senior King's Rider Ansley Fraser, he intends to follow orders; even as he knows nothing of the girl. Not to mention her blasted wolf bondmate, Ali, who barely lets him near her. Ansley has been in love with Leargan for turns, but marrying him out of duty doesn't sit well with her. She'll fight the match tooth and nail-no matter how much she craves to be in his arms and in his bed. The sudden appearance of Avril, a mysterious girl on the run, creates suspicions of powerful magic and evil lurking on the horizon. Dangers lead to a fight Leargan's not prepared for. With the Province threatened, will duty interfere with Leargan's orders or entwine him and Ansley regardless of their desires?
For generations, the Ryhans, ruling family of the Province of Greenwald have been keepers of a sword rumored to possess enough magic to defeat kings. Lord Varthan, a former archduke and betrayer of the king, covets the sword and invades Greenwald. Lady Ceralda Ryhan, daughter of the murdered duke, gains the sword and flees, trusting only her white wolf, Trikser-magically bonded to her. Cera needs nothing more to aid in her fight. Jorrin Aldern, half elfin and half human, left his home in the mountains of Aramour to find his human father who disappeared twenty turns before, but finds Cera with Varthan and his shades on her tail instead. His dual heritage and empathic magic will tempt Cera in ways she never thought she'd desire. But can he convince her trust and love can pave the path to redemption or will the epic battle end in tragedy and evil conquer them all?
