Overview

With their magic boundaries falling and terrible monsters invading, the Marshalls of Lladrana must follow ancient tradition and summon a savior from the Exotique land...

For Alexa Fitzwalter, the Marshall's call pulled the savvy lawyer into a realm where she barely understood the language, let alone the intricacies of politics and power. Armed only with her wits, a mystical companion and the help of the chevalier Bastien, Alexa must use her very human mind and skills to fight the encroaching evil--and resist manipulation by the Marshalls to force her to stay in Lladrana.

Now torn between her affinity for this realm and Earth, will she return home if given the chance? Or dare she risk everything for a land not her own?

Robin D. Owens has been writing longer than she cares to recall. Her fantasy/futuristic romances finally found a home at Berkley with the issuance of HeartMate in December 2001. She credits the ""telepathic cat with attitude"" in selling that book. Currently, she has three domesticated cats and one feral, who is thinking about changing his mind on being Wild in the Colorado winter (canned food might also have something to do with this). She has secretly admitted to having as many as six cats. Before purchasing her home, she shared apartments with an innumerable parade of hamsters, and has included one as a sidekick in her second Luna book, Sorceress of Faith.

She loves writing fantasy with romance or romance with fantasy, and particularly likes adding quirky characters for comic relief and leaving little threads dangling from book to book to see if readers pick up on them (usually, yes! Reader intelligence is awesome). Shesighs over the fact that good writing does not allow for parenthetical phrases or a lot of exclamation points.

Though she drinks tea, her most comfortable hangout to write (outside of her home in the evening) is in the local coffee shop, and she dreams of the time when she will be a full-time author and can learn of all the great places to write in the metro Denver area.

She is particularly proud of her web site, which includes such pages as Worlds (character interviews, cut scenes/chapters/characters, photos of places/things that have inspired her) and Free Your Artist (motivational quote, artist exercise, affirmation). Free Your Artist also has links to virtual chocolate, e-cards, divination sites and a special surprise. Her web site is updated monthly and has excerpts of all her work, including Work in Progress. Her monthly contest is for fun items that usually tie into her books (jewelry, pet carriers, runes...)

Robin loves hearing from readers, tries her best to respond to any questions and has been known to take reader advice for her work (the mole in Heart Thief...). Please email her at robin@robindowens.com

She is profoundly thankful to be recipient of the 2002 Romance Writers of America RITA Award (like the Oscar in her field) for HeartMate, the 2004 PRISM Award for Heart Thief, the 2003 Denver Area Science Fiction Association Golden Lungfish Award for Writer of the Year and the 2004 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers' Writer of the Year Award.
