Flames of Auriel (A Caeles Adventure Book 1)

by Erin Bedford

When living in a world where the prince isn’t always charming, the princess has a mean right hook, and angels are worshiped like gods, love isn’t always easy to find.

Zoe has never been the lady-like princess she’s read about in fairy-tales, even with her very own handsome prince to sweep her off her feet. She doesn’t know what she dislikes more, his arrogant smirk or the way his grey eyes darken when they fight. Angels help him if he doesn’t keep his hands off the help.

Asher won’t admit it, but he admires the fighting style of his warrior princess. She reminds him of an avenging angel the way her fiery hair whips around her as she takes out her challengers. Dark One help him, but she is as tough an opponent on the battlefield as she is off.

With unknown and unwanted feelings starting to emerge between the two royals, a single goodbye turns into a frantic search for a missing princess. Asher has to find the one woman he never thought he’d miss and keep his kingdom safe from an old enemy. If he fails, the angels may not forgive him this time.

Warning: For mature readers.

Juma’s Rain: A Fantasy Romance novel set in Stone Age Africa

by Katharina Gerlach

A Fantasy Romance novel set in Stone Age Africa

The sun’s rays parch Juma as she leads her all male family toward the main village. Nothing and no one will stop her from becoming the chieftess’ apprentice. So she ignores the heat. Everything will be better near the lake. But the fields that should sprout green by now lie bare, with precious soil cracked and dry. Even the lake, thought to be everlasting, dwindles.

Juma discovers that heat dæmon Mubuntu is out of control and that the rain goddess is still sleeping. But only Netinu, the chieftess’ son, believes her, and he seems more interested in courting her than in the welfare of the tribe.

With her dreams going up in flames, Juma prepares to battle the dæmon and wake the goddess – and maybe, in the process, prove herself worthy of becoming chieftess.

The eBook also contains the novella “The Rain Maiden” by Theodor Storm

A few words from the author

The main character was named after my World Vision Goddaughter from Kenya. However, I made sure their characters differed greatly. After all this is a made-up Fantasy story. It is loosely based on Theodor Storm’s novella “Die Regentrude” (Germany 1863) but is set in Africa in a tribe of the little known Nok. All we know about this culture is that they left very beautiful clay statues and kilns behind. As far as we know, they went directly from using stone to iron tools without first using copper and brass like the rest of the word. What little I was able to find out about the Nok, I found so fascinating that I wanted to make them come alive again. And what better way to do that than with a love story.

DRM-free DRM is a form of coding than makes it impossible to legally use an eBook on other eReaders. Since I don’t want to patronize my readers, I am not using DRM. This way, everyone who buys one of my eBooks can convert it into the format supported by his/her eReader.

Treachery of the Daimyo (The Kusunoki Chronicles Book 2)

by Kenneth Jorgensen

Kanto and Akashi are twin brothers, born into the proud and ancient samurai family, the Kusunoki. Their lives diverged when Kanto revealed that Akashi had the power to manipulate the sacred power of the tama, and was thus shinobi, whom all samurai are honor-bound to kill. Akashi was driven from the family to live as an outcast. As told in the first book of the Kusunki Chronicles, Pride of the Samurai, both brothers, one samurai and one shinobi, ultimately played crucial roles in defeating rogue daimyo Matsudaira Ayata and his barbarian allies.

In the peace following the victory over Matsudaira, the lives of Akashi and Kanto have diverged even further. Kanto has risen high in the ranks of the samurai, controlling conquered lands and fellow samurai. Akashi has become powerful among the shinobi by founding a dojo to train them to fight with the supernatural power of the tama. But the peace is tenuous, maintained by a delicate balance of power, and the seven daimyo who rule the land maneuver against each other behind the scenes for advantages that will tip that balance in their favor. When Kanto becomes the center of one such plot to change the balance Akashi must again confront his conflicting loyalties, and choose whether to involve himself in the affairs of the samurai. No matter his choice, however, both brothers will suffer tremendous losses and grief, as told in the second book of the Kusunoki Chronicles, Treachery of the Daimyo.
