It's been awhile, but I finally have a new novel to tell you about: Warrior King, Warrior-Book 1 in a duology. Fantasy, enemies to lovers, opposites attract and forced marriage. The story has them all.
One man is the son of a traitor. The other is the son of a tyrannical emperor. Together, they discover the fine line between duty and justice.
Commander Draylon Aravaid doesn't hide his lineage as the emperor's son but doesn't advertise his origins either. Loyal to a fault, he relies on his hard-won reputation rather than his family name, which his duplicitous father uses to full advantage.
Prince Yarif DiRici trained his entire life to become a consort in a political marriage--all while secretly yearning for love. The death of his father and older brother suddenly thrusts an unwanted crown upon his head, and Yarif into a whirlwind of dangerous plans within plans as he and Draylon are forced into marriage.
The political game is set, and Yarif is kidnapped. It's up to Draylon to mount a daring rescue to prevent all-out war.
The two men must get past each other's mistrust, find common ground, and defeat an enemy neither knew they had...and may not survive!
Warrior King is now available for preorder on Amazon, releasing August 25.
While writing Warrior King, I started a map to keep locations clear in my mind, and to figure distances, times to destinations, etc. I intended to put the map into the book, but it made the ebook file size massive. So I'm going to show the empire of Cormira here, and will likely put a link into the book.
