Fate Promised Love, but Duty Had Other Plans
Award-winning Wild Lavender
Both healer and warrior, nothing will stop Lady Aubrianne from protecting the people she loves. Together with her closest friends, she labors to find the reason behind her nefarious husband's frequent absences. They fear the worst and race against time to avoid being implicated in his treacherous acts.
Larkin, a Royal Guard of Aurelia and second-born noble son, tires of his rakish ways. He craves adventure and jumps at the chance to investigate the increasingly wealthy Lord Roger and his dealings with a rival realm. In Aurelia, there's only one punishment for treason: death to all involved-including the woman who has haunted his dreams for years.
With ambition, murder, and sizzling romance, Wild Lavender delivers! The first book of the Heart & Hand Series introduces a sweeping fantasy epic, one that spans realms, a mystical prophecy, and royal intrigue.
