New Release: The Heir

Twenty-three years ago, Azalyn and Prince Keltor were driven apart. Not even Azalyn was aware of the secret she carried at the time.

As they start to realize that they may still have feelings for one another, there’s one big problem: if a prince marries a commoner, there could be war. Can they find a way to be together and still keep the planet peaceful? Or, will Keltor put his duty above all else? The third book of the Kelderan Runic Warriors series, The Heir, is now available! (Full-length story of 78,000 words with a happy ending.)

–>The Heir Synopsis<--

Twenty-three years ago, Azalyn Rippak Sulani had the misfortune of falling in love with a prince. It wasn’t long before she was chased away and forced to live a quiet life, working for a merchant family and trying her best to start over. However, after a group of aliens kidnap her and knock her unconscious, Azalyn wakes up in the Kelderan palace and comes face-to-face with the man who broke her heart. Because of certain circumstances, she has no choice but to stay in the palace. But to protect her heart and those she loves, she’s determined to find ways to resist the powerful prince and his secrets.

Prince Keltor tro el Vallen is heir to the Kelderan throne and must put duty above all else. Social connections, especially those with love involved, are dangerous. So when the only female who ever treated him as a man instead of a prince comes storming back into his life, it takes everything Keltor has to keep his distance and resist the lively, straightforward woman. Otherwise, he might start to wish for what he can’t have.

As Keltor and Azalyn start to realize that they fit better together now than in the past, they face a bigger problem. Namely, if a prince marries a commoner, there could be war. Can they find a way to recapture their love and start over? Or, will Keltor’s duty to Keldera trump all?

Informal Reader Meet-up in Brighton

I’m going to be in the UK for both vacation and research here soon and I’ve put together an informal reader meet-up in Brighton. Here’s the information:

When: Thursday, September 7, 2017 / 3pm to 5pm-ish

Where: The Hop Poles Pub, 13 Middle Street, BN1 1AL Brighton, UK

What: I’m just hanging out with readers in a pub. Each person will be responsible for their own drinks and/or food. Since this is an informal meeting (first come, first served), the pub will probably expect everyone to buy at least one drink. 🙂 I will bring some goodies related to my dragons to give away and if you want to bring books to sign, I can do that too.

So far, I have at least five people confirmed. If you want to let me know you’re going to be there you can either leave a comment on this post or confirm via my Facebook Event page by clicking here. Can’t wait to see you there!

PS–I will have much lighter hair than what you see in all of my official author photos, to give you a head’s up. But I’ll probably be the only American in the pub, so I shouldn’t be too hard to find. 😉

What about the other dragon clans?

Question: Will there be series for other dragon clans, such as Glenlough, Snowridge, Skyhunter, or Northcastle?

Answer: The short answer? No. However, they will be included in future stories. Let me elaborate. 🙂

I originally spun off the Lochguard dragons to help keep storylines straight. Finn and his family were such strong characters that I knew the rest of his clan would interesting to follow, too. This isn’t to say the other clans are boring—far from it. (You’ll see soon enough in Aiding the Dragon.) However, splitting off my dragon books into five series would limit my storyline possibilities and really stretch the wait time between books. I love my dragon-shifters, but I enjoy writing other series, too. 🙂

So, I’m doing mini-story arcs within existing series. Aiding the Dragon is the first part of a two part storyline on Glenlough. Aiding has a happy ending, don’t worry! But the background story takes two books to complete. I am going to do the same with Snowridge in the not-too-distant future. Kai and Jane’s novella will help set up that story arc!

I have plans for Skyhunter (clan in Southern England) and Northcastle (Northern Irish one), but I don’t know when I’ll get to them. Of course, it greatly depends if my readers continue to support me or not. <3 I hope that answers the question! The mini-story arcs extend the series’ overall life, in my opinion. I hate when a series gets stale and it seems things should just end. (I could probably end the Stonefire series in two books if I had to, hence why I’m expanding the universe.) This should prevent that problem. 😀
