Princess Alecia Zialni flees her arranged marriage with the help of the dangerous Vard Anton, shapeshifter and former army captain. Blinded by love, they believe they can have a life together but every encounter with the mercenaries sent to find them, pushes Vard towards his least controllable form- the gigantic brown bear.

Desperate to find a mentor who will help him control his transformations, Vard travels with Alecia to a forgotten city where a powerful sorcerer resides. But this wizard is in league with the dark elves and the lovers soon discover he has his own dangerous agenda.

Will Vard and Alecia escape the clutches of the sorcerer who would use Alecia’s position to advance the dark elven cause? Can their love survive despite Alecia’s fear of Vard’s animal transformations? What secret does the princess hold that has the power to destroy the trust Vard has in her?

The answers to all this and more are contained in the pages of Princess in Exile, the dark sequel to Princess Avenger.

2016! Happy New Year!

 

0515 The Elf King's Lady_Final2015 was a huge year for me. No wonder it seems to have flown past. I published four books and just 2 days ago I completed the first draft of The Lady and the Pirate. I can’t wait to share more stories with you in 2016 and am hoping for at least three releases.

Estelle Aranati 1Personally, I lost my mother-in-law which was a huge blow for the entire Rowley family. I’ve named my heroine in the Lady and the Pirate after her in the hope that she will live on in that character. Perhaps Estelle will get to do some of the things Esther never could.

The Lord and the Mermaid coverMy youngest graduated from high school and now faces a bachelor degree at the University of Queensland where I studied many years ago. We moved to Brisbane from Townsville after a sojourn of nine years. Life seems to be coming full circle in many ways.

In 2015 there have been good times and bad, plenty of cricket, laughs and tragedies and more cricket.

The Lady's Choice Cover- newI love this time when we stand at the start of a new year and I’m always filled with optimism. I hope this year brings you more good than bad and a chance to change anything about your life that needs changing.

Princess Avenger Ebook coverFor me, I’m going to embrace 2016 and look forward to a year of discovering new characters, new friends and old and making the most of this life I’ve been granted.

Release Day- The Elf King’s Lady

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalToday sees the release of my fourth book, The Elf King’s Lady, Wildecoast Saga Book Two. For those who have read The Lord and the Mermaid, it’s the love story of Kain Jazara and Alique Zorba and it’s a truly magnificent love. These two are beautiful together. Here’s the blurb:

In the midst of a war between elves and men, two unlikely companions find love. But in this battle of ages, can they defy the very blood that courses through their veins?

The human kingdom of Thorius is once again under threat from the dark elven menace. General Kain Jazara has sworn to protect Thorius from all danger, magical or otherwise – but first he must rescue the highborn family of alluring healer Lady Alique Zorba.

Thrown together in their quest to save Alique’s family, and eventually themselves, from the merciless elven clan, the pragmatic General and the impulsive Lady Alique discover an undeniable passion. But when Kain’s world is torn apart by a personal revelation, he turns his back on both Alique and his homeland.

Can Kain find a path back to love and victory in time? Or will he allow revelations from his family’s mysterious past to destroy his relationship, his happiness, and his kingdom?

I hope you love their story. Please leave a comment to win a copy of The Elf King’s Lady.

The Elf King’s Lady- 1 week to go!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalExcitement is building in my world as I count down to the launch of another book. I’m so excited to be bringing you Kane and Alique’s love story in The Elf King’s Lady. Now there is only one week to go until release day.

The winner of last week’s comp was Vik who gets to choose one of my books for free!

This week, simply leave a comment on this blog to go in the draw to win one of my books. Too easy.

So get cracking and make this a big final week!

4 weeks until The Elf King’s Lady!

0515 The Elf King's Lady_FinalActually it’s less than four weeks as this is late! Last week’s winner was Pam and her favourite hero, described in five words was: Blonde tall blue eyed hero.

That is certainly one of the stereotypical heroes and a favourite with many. My favourite is more like General Kain Jazara from The Elf King’s Lady or Captain Vard Anton from Princess Avenger– tall, dark, brooding and mysterious; a man not easy to get close to but one who is loyal once he falls in love.

This week, to mark four weeks from release of The Elf King’s Lady, I want to shift the focus to the girls. Please describe in four words, your ideal heroine. The winner can select any one of my books for their very own.

Until next week…
