Description

An epic love story.

Companions are the kingdom’s most beautiful and educated women—possessions of Syrasan’s royal men.

THE ROYAL COMPANION #1

Bound by tradition. Now they must follow the rules.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOOLLAHRA DIGITAL LITERARY AWARDS 2017

Aldara is sixteen years old when she is sold by her farming family to the obnoxious Prince Pandarus as a gift for his younger brother, Prince Tyron. Resistant at first, the new Companion soon realises she must embrace the role or face the consequences of her failure. 

Prince Tyron has just returned from war. All he wants is privacy to grieve the men who died at the border. At his brother’s insistence, Tyron attends a social hunt where his Companion is introduced for the first time. He senses something beneath the polished exterior presented to him. She is not like the others.

While initial encounters between the troubled war hero and his reluctant Companion are awkward, their connection is immediate. But they are soon reminded by those closest to them that there is no place for love between a prince and his Companion.

Set amid grief and war, The Royal Companion is a heart-warming love story about what it means to give yourself over to another.

Trigger warning: This book contains sexual violence.

THE COMMON GIRL #2

Love has never been more dangerous.

The longstanding Companion tradition is about to change. A new trade agreement between two kings will see women sold across the border.

Prince Tyron never wanted a Companion, but now he cannot fathom a life without her. When a rebellious act brings brutal consequences, Tyron realises his feelings put his Companion at risk. As her future grows more uncertain, he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

Aldara never wanted to be a Companion, but at age sixteen the choice was made for her. She never imagined she would grow to love the man who owns her more than her own freedom. But when her life at Archdale begins to crumble, Tyron sends her back to the safety of her family, where she must find a way to exist without him. As Zoelin continues to tighten its grip on Syrasan, the pair soon discovers there are no safe havens.

Tender and heart-stopping, The Common Girl is a love story about family, sacrifice and the roles that bind us.

THE MAJESTIC IMPOSTOR #3

A relentless love. An impossible choice.

Aldara has left the Companion life behind her. Having returned south to her family, she thought all ties to her prince severed. She was wrong. Now she has a secret—one she must keep in order to protect the people she loves. But when her past shows up at her home, lives begin to unravel.

Still grieving the departure of his Companion and the death of his father, Prince Tyron is adjusting to life under his brother’s rule. Shifts in power see him sent to Corneo to take control of the West. Amid the throes of war, he learns that the woman who still holds his heart has been keeping a secret. An impulsive decision delivers him into enemy hands with no way out.

Unless she does the unthinkable…

Fast-paced and lyrical, The Majestic Impostor is a medieval tale of power and the unstoppable forces of love.

Reviews

  • A solid, gripping, and thoroughly enjoyable series

    The Companion Series is extremely well-written and full of (mostly) likable characters and adventure. The work appears to have been well-researched with precise descriptions and accurate (or at least plausible) details for varied events from horse races to battle scenes to lavish parties. The history and traditions of the fictional land are described in engrossing manner that makes the reader want to learn more, and the arcing love story is complex and beautiful, never crossing the line into cheesiness. One of the greatest strengths in my opinion was the dialogue; the interactions between characters feel authentic and are incredibly entertaining, whether the exchange is sarcastic, funny, tense, loving, or anything else. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this series and I truly cannot wait to read more from this very talented writer.

    Loved the characters and the story. Fast paced and fun. Was sad for the three to end! Can’t wait for the next one at the end of 2018. My only issues with the book: 1. Names were to hard! But by the third book I had finally figured them out. 2. While spinning a story, the author wood forget major details like who and what. Kind of choppy. I had to reread a lot of sections trying to figured out what had happened. All in all I did not care. The story was to good. The female lead so strong. And the male a good man.

    Enough intrigue to keep one reading. Although a bit “corny” at times, the plot works well and brings reader to a more than satisfactory ending. It is most definitely one of those “feel good reads” without being boring.
