Happy Release Day!!!
The book is out today! And to celebrate, there’s an online party on Facebook, so come on out.
AQoC is the first installment in The Republic series, featuring a high fantasy world and lesbian (F/F) romance between Aeley Dahe and Lira Derossa. The blurb:
Life hasn’t been easy for Aeley since she arrested her brother, and her role as a political leader leaves her feeling isolated and lonely. Days before her brother’s trial, she meets Lira, a quiet and modest scribe who makes Aeley want more than just a professional relationship.
When she attends the trial and leaves with a marriage contract, Aeley doesn’t know what to do. She must choose one of two brothers, marrying into a family she doesn’t know. Then she discovers that Lira is part of the same family–a sister to Aeley’s suitors and the family’s disgrace. And not at all opposed to an intimate relationship.
Except random acts of violence against her people test Aeley’s ability as a leader, and a web of lies and deceit threaten not only her chance at happiness, but her life…
But this isn’t Aeley’s first appearance! Her story was born from a previous novella, Rule Breaker, in the Won’t Back Down anthology. There, both Aeley and her brother, Allon, make their debuts.
Check It Out… Praise for AQoC!
“A very enjoyable well written book. Exciting situations, strong female leads and believable plots and sub plots. Blood family relations at their worst, friend family relations at their most powerful and inspirational. A novel that has both leading women with commendable traits and beliefs while still possessing human failings. In a time when sexuality between couples depended on breeding, valour, bravery, honour and in this case love rather on gender. Both women have very different personalities and upbringing, however, both have their own strengths and each compliments the others mettle as well as combating and protecting each other’s weaknesses. A novel that shows strength of family does not necessarily come those we are related too but a novel which emphasis the potency and ultimately the effectiveness of true love. Anyone wanting a rich love story combined with devious subterfuge, a little light comedy, and ultimately a richly deserved happy ending should enjoy this book.” ~ Christine Close
And In More News…
I’m currently working on book #2, Four. It’s looking PLENTY interesting, featuring a gay (M/M) relationship with Mayr from AQoC. He’s an amazing best friend, a loving family man, and a heartbroken sweetheart. Mayr has secrets, but he’s about to find his match with Tash, once a gangster but now a devoted priest. Together they’ll face a challenge more difficult, more tortuous than all others: love.
… and that’s all I’m saying about that for now. Stay tuned for more!
