Princess Avenger: An Epic Fantasy Romance Novel (Queenmakers Saga Book 1) by Bernadette Rowley

AN AVENGING PRINCESS

Alecia is determined to protect her people from her tyrannical father. Her only worth is to have a son, who will be heir to the kingdom.

A DANGEROUS SHIFTER

Vard is tasked with guarding a princess who refuses to be shielded from danger. His dark secret could spell the end of the woman he’s sworn to protect.

And yet, when thrown together, neither of them can deny the forbidden attraction. As their lives spin out of control, will love be enough to pull them from the vortex and perhaps save the kingdom?

Princess Avenger is the first book in the epic Queenmakers Saga, combining the sweeping high fantasy world of Thorius with sizzling romance. If you like magic, political intrigue and mythical creatures, wrapped up in a ‘beauty and the beast’ love story, then you’ll adore Princess Avenger.

***This book contains sex scenes and is intended for mature readers. ***

From The Author:

Princess Avenger was the start of my love affair with the world of Thorius. I was challenged to write a romance and set out on a walk to brainstorm my story. By the time I returned, Alecia Zialni was born- a princess with a secret other identity. Of course, there had to be a hero who could match Alecia in daring and courage. Vard Anton, a very unusual man and captain of the army, hid more secrets than was safe- especially for Alecia.

It was soon pretty clear that I would need more than one book to finish their story. The second installment is Princess in Exile and the third has a working title of The Queen Returns. It already has its cover.

All my fantasy romance stories are designed to be stand-alone but share many characters. While writing the love story of one couple, a character will walk through the story who is crying out for their own book. Such is the case for The Lady’s Choice where Ramon Zorba from Princess Avenger, finds his love.

I hope you enjoy exploring my fantasy world of Thorius.

The Lady’s Choice (Queenmakers Saga 2) by Bernadette Rowley

…the perfect plan…With her people on the brink of starvation, Lady Benae Branasar devises a daring rescue. She will marry powerful Prince Jiseve of Brightcastle and use his fortune to save her estates. But first she must compete against three princesses equally determined to win his hand.

…a dangerous distraction…When she finds herself drawn to her reluctant escort, the prince’s squire Ramón Zorba, her plans begin to unravel.

Ramón is dealing with problems of his own, but as he thaws, Benae glimpses the devastating man beneath. The more time they spend together, the harder Benae finds it to focus on her objective. Will she stay true to her people? Or will love and fate intervene?

Benae and Ramón face temptation, danger and tragedy in this passionate fantasy romance.

The Lady’s Choice is the second book in the epic Queenmakers Saga, blending the sweeping high fantasy world of Thorius with sizzling romance. If you like magic, court intrigue and mythical creatures, wrapped up in a “marriage of convenience gone wrong” romance, you’ll love The Lady’s Choice.

This book contains sex scenes and is intended for mature readers.

From The Author: The Lady’s Choice is the second book I wrote and was first published by Penguin Australia. It’s a spin-off of Princess Avenger and the hero is Ramon Zorba, a secondary character from Princess Avenger. Ramon is a beta hero who comes into his power in this fantasy romance. I thought it would be fun to write a virgin hero and it really was.

The heroine is beautiful Benae who decides a marriage of convenience will provide her the funds to save her impoverished estate. She doesn’t reckon on falling in love along the way and not with her husband.

I love Benae and have given her gifts I wish I had. She can speak mind to mind with her horse and can heal with her mind as well. She has a beautiful relationship with her stallion Flaire, just like the one I had with my horse Captain.

This one is the book of my heart and I hope you enjoy it.

The Lady and The Pirate by Bernadette Rowley

Lady Esta Aranati, burdened by an impoverished estate, has turned her hand to smuggling. She leads a double life, a mask and wig the only shields that protect her reputation. Swashbuckling pirate Samael Delacost craves her cargo and her heart. But before he can be worthy of her love, he must exorcize the ghosts of his past. An irresistible connection binds them but will that be enough to convince Samael to turn his back on the sea, or for Esta to take a chance on happiness she doesn’t think she deserves?

The Lady and the Pirate continues The Wildecoast Saga, with popular The Lord and the Mermaid characters Nikolas Cosara and his wife Merielle featured in this latest instalment from Bernadette Rowley.

5 Star Review: Book three in the Wildecoast Saga is a stand-alone book that any fantasy romance reader will enjoy whether you have read The Lord And The Mermaid or The Elf King’s Lady sagas first.

Twenty-five well-written chapters with realistic characters bring the reader into Lady Esta Aranati’s double life.

Even though the author places this at the end of the book, I think it will benefit you to know the meaning of these two terms upfront. Lenweri (the elven people, they have dark skin, pointed ears and are tall and elegant) and Sis Lenweri (the faction of dark elves that wishes to take over the kingdom of Thorius).

Chapter one opens with some suspense aboard the ‘Sea Sprite’ when captain, Lady Esta Aranti’s first mate wakes her up from deep sleep to inform her they have a visitor on board. I quote: “Esta drew a deep and heavy sigh, her heart kicking up a notch as she contemplated who the visitor might be. On a ship miles out to sea at night, there were few possibilities and none of them good.”

In chapter three the mood shifts and I quote:

“Esta moved to the bow and stood with the wind in her face, the black strands of her wig streaming behind her. It was chill but not wet and she reveled in the dance of her ship over the waves. Sea Sprite was one of the joys of her life and sailing one of her great loves. When she was on the ocean, she was free of earthly ties and a little of its wildness seeped into her, giving her strength for the trials of estate life. Lately, she had found it almost impossible to return to the estate without a nagging sense of dread.

“You seem almost happy tonight, sister,” Katrine said, joining her in the bow. Katrine was wildness personified, with a lithe body and long black hair that she rarely tied back. Not for her the wig as she had less need for a full disguise, shunning public life as she did. She wore leather breeches, flowing black shirts and a broad black satin mask decorated with stars. Her piercing blue eyes were now fixed on Esta.

“I am happy, Katrine,” Esta said. “What makes you think I am ever unhappy?”

I invite you to join Katrine and Esta as they sail the sea with visions of finding treasure on their minds.

I hope the quotes above whet your appetite for strong female characters, rugged men, pirates, treasure maps, adventure, sword and sorcery and of course romance. 5 Stars. Review by Theodocia McLean

************************

About The Author: Bernadette Rowley is a lover of epic fantasy who is a veterinarian by day and an author by night. She is currently published in the genre of fantasy/paranormal romance with eight books, all set in her fantasy world of Thorius.

When she was a young teenager, an aunt gave her a copy of The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks and Bernadette has lived in various fantasy worlds ever since. So, it’s no surprise that her chosen genre when writing romance is fantasy.

“I can see these settings so vibrantly in my mind and hope my readers can too.”

But Bernadette has no desire to spoon-feed her readers by laboriously describing her fantasy settings. She would rather the reader use their own imagination a little.

Along with sword and sorcery, dashing heroes and stunning heroines, this author includes strong healing themes in many of her books- an element which is central to her everyday job.

“When I started writing this series, I never imagined my day job would force its way into my stories as it has.”

And of course, there are animals, especially Bernadette’s beloved horses.

Bernadette lives in Brisbane, Australia, with the four heroes in her life- her husband Michael and three grown sons.
