An epic love story.
Companions are the kingdom's most beautiful and educated women—possessions of Syrasan's royal men.
THE ROYAL COMPANION #1
She is the gift he did not want. He is the prince she is forbidden to love.
SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOOLLAHRA DIGITAL LITERARY AWARDS 2017
Aldara is sixteen when she is sold to the obnoxious crown prince as a gift for his brother. Forced to leave the only life she has ever known, Aldara is sent to Archdale Castle, where she is mentored to become Prince Tyron's perfect Companion. But no amount of lessons can prepare her for the troubled man marked by war. He sees straight through the polished exterior presented to him. He sees her. She must keep the facade together or deal with the repercussions.
Prince Tyron has just returned from war. All he wants is privacy to grieve the men who died at the border. So when his brother gifts him a Companion upon his return, he is forced to embrace a tradition he has so far managed to avoid. Except Aldara is not like the others. She walks with her face to the sun and arms swinging. Her laughter makes him forget the lie. But if they ignore the rules that safeguard them, there will be consequences…
This is book one in The Companion series. If you enjoy medieval romance that is out of this world, then this epic tale of love against all odds is for you.
Trigger warning: This book contains sexual violence, death and dark themes.
THE COMMON GIRL #2
Love has never been more dangerous.
The longstanding Companion tradition is about to change. A new trade agreement between two kings will see women sold across the border.
Prince Tyron never wanted a Companion, but now he cannot fathom a life without her. When a rebellious act brings brutal consequences, Tyron realises his feelings put his Companion at risk. As her future grows more uncertain, he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
Aldara never wanted to be a Companion, but at age sixteen the choice was made for her. She never imagined she would grow to love the man who owns her more than her own freedom. But when her life at Archdale begins to crumble, Tyron sends her back to the safety of her family, where she must find a way to exist without him. As Zoelin continues to tighten its grip on Syrasan, the pair soon discovers there are no safe havens.
Tender and heart-stopping, The Common Girl is a love story about family, sacrifice and the roles that bind us.
THE MAJESTIC IMPOSTOR #3
A relentless love. An impossible choice.
Aldara has left the Companion life behind her. Having returned south to her family, she thought all ties to her prince severed. She was wrong. Now she has a secret—one she must keep in order to protect the people she loves. But when her past shows up at her home, lives begin to unravel.
Still grieving the departure of his Companion and the death of his father, Prince Tyron is adjusting to life under his brother's rule. Shifts in power see him sent to Corneo to take control of the West. Amid the throes of war, he learns that the woman who still holds his heart has been keeping a secret. An impulsive decision delivers him into enemy hands with no way out.
Unless she does the unthinkable…
Fast-paced and lyrical, The Majestic Impostor is a medieval tale of power and the unstoppable forces of love.
