A Suitable Replacement
For fans of Deceived-verse stories, a new addition!
After three years abroad on an arduous expedition, Maximilian is happy to be home, where he can pursue his private studies in peace and enjoy not living in a dusty tent. He is also glad he has arrived in time to attend his twin sister’s wedding in a few months, and to finally meet her fiancé, Kelcey.
Instead he arrives home to be accosted by his sister’s furious fiancé, who wants to know where she has run off to and why. When they confirm the wedding is most definitely canceled, Max has no choice but to fulfill the Runaway Clause in the marriage contract: he must find Kelcey a new spouse.
But the more time passes, the more he wishes he could offer himself up as replacement, no matter how unsuitable an arrangement he knows that would be …
Princes of the Blood – With Pride and In Despair
These books actually work backwards in time, to tell the stories of Håkon & Kristof, and Telme & Korin, characters readers encounter in the first book, Of Last Resort
When his sister falls ill, Kristof is ordered to assume a duty never meant for him: become the Duke of Stehlmore and marry a notorious Prince of the Blood. It is one of the oldest honors and duties undertaken by his family, but Kristof feels only resentment that he might leave behind all he knows to serve an arrogant half-demon his mother’s reach has never needed.
Prince Håkon Vinter is an exceptional Prince of the Blood: respected, feared, and unstoppable. He has no need of an arrogant, cowardly paladin who clearly wants nothing to do with him. Once they figure out how to stop the demons suddenly plaguing the kingdom, and whoever is orchestrating the attacks, he’ll figure out how to free himself of his worthless fiancé as well.
Prince Telmé Guldbrandsen has been groomed since childhood to become a notorious Prince of the Blood, and to someday lead them. He will be the youngest person to ever take the Blooding—if he can behave long enough to prove he can be trusted with the responsibility. But behaving is difficult when he is constantly forced to endure Korin, heir to the High Priest of the Temple of the Sacred Three and the Reach of the House, and the snotty brat Telmé is expected to someday marry.
Then the unthinkable happens, and the two young men are thrust into positions for which they are not ready. Overcome by grief and fear, facing the doubts of their peers and mistrust from each other, if they cannot find a way to bear their burdens, the weight they carry will not only destroy them, but the kingdom.
