When 22 year old Alaina stumbles into a world that she thought only existed in her mind, she is understandably a little bit freaked out. Who wouldn't be? Characters that she had written down years ago are walking, and talking, and telling her that she is the only one who can save the princess and the kingdom of Isleen. Um...okay. As she travels down to the southern kingdom with Sir Gabriel, a really hot knight, she falls off horses, has an interaction with an evil witch, gets attacked by a sea creature, and even falls from lust into love.

About the Author
Rebecca Rynecki is a librarian, and graduate of Hollins University with a degree in History.

When she's not writing or giving patrons the evil eye at work, she dances around the house with her husband and son, and bakes bread and cupcakes.

This book would actually make a really great summer read so it's timely that it's just out now. :) It has adventure. It has romance. It has, well...a dripping, hot knight with a wicked sense of humor. How can you go wrong? Fan of Princess Bride? Then you NEED to read this book. It has the same tongue in cheek humor and homage to the fantasy genre. I laughed, I cried a little, then I almost shot tea right out of my nose when the next snarky spot hit. I loved so much of this book...I kind of wish I'd written it myself! LOL. Sea monsters Hot knights Dragon rides Spiders in the Loo Princesses in Comas One bad-@ss Baba Yaga These are just some of the (you don't know it, yet, but...) hilarious things you will find in The Secret World of Alaina Downs.
If you like any of the following: Magic, Hot knight, sneaky flirting, mysterious worlds, Peeping toms, awkward moments and/or bareback riding on dragons, then you should pick up this book. Alaina Downs is an average woman who somehow winds up in a foreign world called Isleen, manages to embarrass herself repeatedly, is gifted a hot knight as her traveling companion & has the kind of adventures that would either seriously entertain her friends and family or buy her a one-way ticket to the local mental ward... Did I mention that Alaina is commissioned with the task of saving a damsel in distress and possibly the entire world?
