Overview

Lita was a princess without a throne. Betrothed as a child to Emmanuel, heir to the other royal family that claimed the lost kingdom of Los Cielos, she grew up planning to do her duty, heal the land, and fulfill prophecy. Somehow.
When Emmanuel died, his brother Esteban demanded she continue the betrothal -- to him. What else was she to do, but her duty?
But when prophecy awakened and Esteban decided to recover Los Cielos without her, the mysterious Black Monks, guardians of the royal family, acted. Obeying a telegram that summoned her to Los Cielos, Lita met Eduardo, the youngest of the three brothers. When they discovered they were both being manipulated and lied to, they became allies and determined to regain Los Cielos without Esteban, so Lita could be free of him.
A reformed scoundrel and drunkard, Eduardo pledged himself to be Lita’s defender, knowing Esteban would kill him for it. He warned Lita never to love him, but he had already lost his heart to her. Dying for her would finally cleanse him of all his crimes.
Under the tutelage and care of the Black Monks, Lita and Eduardo ventured underground, in search of the water that would give life back to a kingdom of vineyards. The closer they got to the lost kingdom and the curses that destroyed it, the more secrets and heartache they uncovered, at the risk of their lives. And possibly their hearts.

Meet the Author

Michelle has been a story addict for as long as she can remember, discovering Narnia and Star Trek at an early age, and becoming addicted to Greek mythology. After discovering fandom in college, she published 40+ short stories in various universes including Star Trek, Highlander, and Stargate SG-1. This launched her writing career, eventually creating her own universes instead of playing in someone else's.
She has a BA in theater/English from Northwestern College and a MA in communication, focused on film and writing from Regent University. She continues to write and submit scripts for various screenwriting competitions.
In 1990, she broke into the public market when she won 1st place in the 4th quarter of the Writers of the Future contest, earning prize money, royalty money, and publication in that year's anthology. It took another 10 years before her first book contract, for Heir of Faxinor. Since then, Michelle has published 40+ books and novellas with multiple e-publishers, in science fiction and fantasy, YA, and many sub-genres of romance. She has been a finalist in the EPIC Awards competition multiple times, winning with Lorien in 2006, and The Meruk Episodes, 1-5, in 2010, and has garnered 4s and 5s from many review sites.
Her training includes the Institute for Children's Literature; 8+ years in advertising; 10 years at a community newspaper; and freelance editing for small presses and a major business publisher.
In 2008, she launched her own freelance editing business, offering proofreading as well as light or in-depth editing services on an hourly basis. Check her Web site: www.Mlevigne.com and click on the red pen to learn more.
