PART FOUR: About the books
Daugther of the Pirate King (2017)
If you want something done right. .. When her father, the ruthless Pirate King, discovers that a legendary treasure map can be found on an enemy ship, his daughter, Alosa, knows that there’s only one pirate for the job – herself. Leaving behind her beloved ship and crew, Alosa deliberately facilitates herown kidnapping to ensure her welcome on the ship. After all, who’s going to suspect a girl locked in a cell? But Alosa has skills enough for any three pirates, and has yet to meet her match. Although she has to admit that the surprisingly perceptive and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden, the lucky pirate charged with finding out all her secrets, comes the closest. Now it’s down to a battle of wits and will…. Can Alosa find the map before Riden figures out her plan?
Warrior of the Wild (2019)
How do you kill a god?
As her father’s chosen heir, eighteen-year-old Rasmira has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. But when her coming-of-age trial is sabotaged and she fails the test, her father banishes her to the monster-filled wilderness with an impossible quest: To win back her honor, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year or die trying.
The Shadows Between Us (2020)
They still haven’t found the body of the first and only boy who broke Alessandra’s heart—and they never will. Since then, all of her relationships have been purely physical. And now at eighteen years old, Alessandra is ready for more. The plan is simple:
1. Make the king fall in love with her.
2. Get him to marry her.
3. Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.
It’s no small task, but Alessandra wants a kingdom and is going to do everything within her power to get it. She knows the freshly crowned Shadow King will be her toughest target yet. Shrouded in a mysterious power, no one is allowed to touch him.
But, as forces combine to try and keep Alessandra from earning the king’s heart, she wonders if perhaps she’s already lost her own.
