What if your One True Love wasn’t Prince Charming, but you had to marry him anyway?

(romantic science fiction in a fantasy world: cover and novel coming soon) Princess Shawnia only intends to marry for love, but when her prairie kingdom is invaded by strangers with unimaginably fast transport and deadly weapons never before seen, she forges an alliance with the northern kingdom sealed by her marriage to their prince. The northern prince is handsome and charming, but cultural differences and her heart threaten the alliance. Despite realizing what the marriage will cost her, she resolves to see it through in order to save her people.

Untitled 1980s romance

(romantic women’s fiction: cover and novel coming soon) In 1986, Elaine Richards has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, a golf membership, and a nice car but no job and no love life. She lives in her parents’ spacious home, trying to decide what she wants. Her father introduces her to Ken, a handsome young lawyer who offers her the comfortable, happy marriage her parents enjoy. At the same time, she is equally attracted to Roland, a young working man whose family and lifestyle are very different from hers.

As Elaine struggles with her choices, her life takes an unplanned turn. With new responsibilities and encouragement from Roland and his sisters, she explores independence and realizes that “happy enough” is not enough.

Comments from advance readers of Princess (cover and novel coming soon):

Princess is a wonderful romance between two engaging characters with a compelling underlying storyline rich in suspense.

Reviews to come

I read Princess as a story with two main parallel tracks. One a mystery about the collision of an iron age civilization and a science fiction / high tech unknown enemy. The other main track was the country girl goes to the big city and gets caught in a love pentagon. It would never have occurred to me to combine the two, but you did it well and both stories were better because of the depth they added to each other.
