The idea for this series came to me long before I was writing professionally. I used to daydream all the time before I found my outlet writing fiction. This series has been something I used to turn over and over in my mind before I went to sleep or when I was bored. I hope it gives you as much pleasure as it's given me over the years and I hope this series of novellas will do my characters justice. Look for books 1-4 in 2018 from Changeling Press.
A nameless orphan growing up as a servant in the king's household, Brisa learned to survive by adapting. Her closeness in age to Princess Val'Trea put her in place as the princess's lady maiden, her most trusted personal servant, but Brisa's look-alike appearance makes her Val'Trea's commanded stand-in.
Ka'Sen, Prince of Planets, Leader of the Union of Worlds, can have anything he wants, except magic. The sacred home world turned from technology during the great exodus and saved the dying planet by finding magic. Those on Rosrel protect the mystical forces from outsiders. Ka'Sen knows such power would quell his enemies and cement his father's legacy. He must convince the Rosrel princess to become his wife and give him a child of magic.
Brisa never dreamed the princess would command her to wed on her behalf. When nothing, not even your face, belongs to you, how do you find the courage to say no?
Ka'Sen, Prince of Planets, Leader of the Union of Worlds, can have anything he wants -- except magic. To get that power he must wed the princess of the only world with the fearsome force he craves. But when he takes his new wife into his bed he's bewitched by something more commanding than sorcery. Love.
Ka'Sen's never had the liberty to follow his emotions. Now that he knows his wife lied to him from the first moment they met, he definitely can't allow himself to trust in her or follow the vines of desire wrapping around his heart.
Brisa never dreamed she'd live in the beyond, traveling through the stars -- she also never imagined she'd be caught in a war between ideologies. Her new husband is a mystery of contradictions. So much about the wider universe is strange to her, but the feelings his nearness stirs are the strangest of all.
Hating this man should be so much easier than loving him. Interlopers in Ka'Sen's world beg her to save them, but doing so will destroy the only man she's ever loved. When she doesn't understand the game how can she possibly comprehend the stakes and know what's right?
