Betrayed by king and country, the life of a nobleman is a distant memory for Captain Stone. All the man needed in life was wine, wenches and song between skirmishes with sovereign ships, which resulted in riches and many soiled britches, to inconvenience England. That is until he met his alluring new captive.
Magdelena de Monterroso had expected to be swept away on her wedding night in a pair of big strong arms. What she didn’t expect was those arms to belong to pirates raiding the lands of her new husband! Enslaved aboard the Devil’s Pride, Magdelena refuses to give her captors the satisfaction of seeing her fear. However, she finds the pirates, led by the smoldering Captain Stone, are not the vicious bloodthirsty mob she took them for and soon the young bride’s urgency to return to San Sebastian is fueled by something altogether different.
Conquest of a Queen, the very first book of my Courtships of Quendaris series is published at last! It was a long and hard journey and I look forward to writing more adventures featuring Isabel, Nancy, Prince Alaric and the rest of the crew. The ebook is now available on Smashwords and is coming soon to a bookstore near you. In the meantime, you can buy it in print here.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I’m stepping away from the realm of Baelcrest for a bit but I’ll be back with more adventures soon. Stay tuned for news about my next book already in progress.
First, Happy Ramadan to my Muslim readers, Happy Canada Day to all you Canucks out there and Happy Independence Day my fellow Americans!
It’s been a hectic few weeks for me here in the Sunshine State but I’m happy to say I finally finished the revisions to Conquest of a Queen. I’m working through the publishing process now and hope to have it available for sale in your local retail outlet via Smashwords very soon.
I’m already hard at work on my next project and will post about that very soon. In the meantime, have a safe and dry weekend everyone.
