Overview

Desertion, denial, desire--Courting Disaster is an adventure into the battle of the sexes. Winter's not yet gone at the Wharedish royal palace, but things are about to thaw out fast. Prince Brack and his lady wife have a platonic marriage that is all but lost. Brack, looking for amusement, sends missives to his hot-blooded Kadish chums but the results aren't anything like his expectations. Cheya of Ponarth arrives with her brother and the three brawling Tawyns, and creates a lot of heat between them and every man in the palace, including the prince. Before long, it's clear there is some conquering and squaring off to be done. And as Cheya befriends Brack's wife Rhystal she discovers there's more hidden than revealed with the ice princess. In Courting Disaster, men are brought to their knees in sword-slinging, tongue-lashing foreplay, and women rise above the hoopla to demonstrate why the queen always rules the board.

Read an Excerpt

Rhystal didn't have much choice about sitting--she melted onto the closest settee before she fell down.

His words echoed in her brain. Since I am so good at romance. Since I am so good at romance.

Not moving an inch, not even allowing a muscle in her face to twitch, she was hard put to form anything resembling a fluid response to that. Did he have any clue what those words did to her? A blade to her heart wouldn't have done as much damage.

It wasn't as if she were blind to his infidelities--she was devastated at each whisper she heard behind drapes as she walked through the halls. Not a day passed where word of his latest affair didn't carry to her, or that she didn't cry over it.

Her throat convulsed as she swallowed the bile that rose. By all accounts, her husband was very good at romance ... with everyone but her.
