I am beyond thrilled to announce that The Liar’s Crown is now available!
This is the first book in my Dominions trilogy–a brand new upper YA / new adult fantasy romance series. It is available in hardcover, ebook, and a brilliantly narrated audiobook at online retailers and stores today! Don’t miss out and go grab your copy now!
P.S. To my paranormal romance readers… I know you’ll love this as much as my PNR stuff! It’s got the same compelling characters, huge world building, fast plot, epic fight scenes, tension-filled romance, and also a dollop of steam (it’s upper YA/ new adult y’all). I really want to know what you think!
THE LIAR’S CROWN
One born to rule. One to forfeit…
Everything about my life is a lie. As a hidden twin princess, born second, I have only one purpose—to sacrifice my life for my sister if death comes for her. I’ve been living under the guise of a poor, obscure girl of no standing, slipping into the palace and into the role of the true princess when danger is present.
Now the queen is dead and the ageless King Eidolon has sent my sister a gift—an eerily familiar gift—and a proposal to wed. I don’t trust him, so I do what I was born to do and secretly take her place on the eve of the coronation. Which is why, when a figure made of shadow kidnaps the new queen, he gets me by mistake.
As I try to escape, all the lies start to unravel. And not just my lies. The Shadowraith who took me has secrets of his own. He struggles to contain the shadows he wields—other faces, identities that threaten my very life.
Winter is at the walls. Darkness is looming. And the only way to save my sister and our dominion is to kill Eidolon…and the Shadowraith who has stolen my heart.
