I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has read Going Royal from when the first book released in January to today! This is one of those series that I fell in love with from the first draft. I have often said that writing Some Like it Royal and Some Like it Scandalous were pure magic. Each book in this series has been. As I write this, I'm working on the fifth book, and I am grinning ear to ear. For a limited time, Some Like it Royal is on sale for $0.99 and ranked 14 on Barnes and Noble and #47 on Amazon overall. I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to meet the Andraste Royal Family.
Enjoy the magic, I know I am.
On sale for a limited time! Meet Alyx and Daniel for $0.99!
Living out of a car and waiting tables to make ends meet is hardly the stuff of fairy tales. So when a gorgeous man approaches Alyx Dagmar with a wild story about her royal lineage and an even wilder proposition, the aspiring actress is sure he’s got the wrong woman.
Self-made billionaire Daniel Voldakov needs connections before he can expand his software business into Europe. A blue-blooded fiancée would open all the right doors—and Daniel’s certain he can tempt the pretty but penniless Princess Alyxandretta to accept the part she was born to play.
Alyx can’t resist Daniel’s offer, and throws herself into the role. But as the paparazzi fall in love with their “storybook romance,” Alyx finds herself drawn to Daniel in ways she’d never imagined. Are his returned affections true, or all just part of the plan? He’ll do anything it takes to prove his love, and to make her see that the only happily ever after he wants is with her…the real her.
Mariska stared at him, her mouth open in silent
He stalked forward, tongue lolling against his
teeth. He smelled no one else, just her.
She was alone.
Lashed by sturdy ropes to the back wheel of her
Face to face, he glared at her.
The stink of her fear clogged his nose. The wolf
arched his head, enjoying the tart scent of it.
“What the hell?” Kid stumbled to a halt next to
him. A hand pressed to his head as though staving off the ache. Like the wolf,
he stared at Mariska.
“Let me go.” His spitting kitten recovered from
the shock stippling her features.
“I didn’t tie you up, ma’am.” Kid groaned. “And
until I know who did and why the hell I feel like this, I think you can stay
Mariska’s gaze darted back to him. His lips
peeled back from his teeth.
She’d better start explaining.
“What does it want?” Mariska directed her words
at Kid, but she never stopped staring at Cody. Even as the musk of her fear peaked,
her gaze didn’t waver. The wolf approved, even as it irritated him. She should
bow her head.
She should beg.
No, Cody reasoned, even as the wolf’s fury
choked him. She drugged them. It
wasn’t quite the same as hurting.
The wolf didn’t care for reason. It was close
“Explain.” Kid didn’t bother with a smile or
diplomacy. His ashen face and wobbling words carried sickness in them.
Wolf and boy echoed the same thought.
Mariska swallowed. “Will you at least release
“No.” Kid squatted, one hand dropping to the
ground as though to steady himself. “What did you do?”
“It was a sleeping draught. Naught else.”
Mariska’s gaze darted to Kid. Cody growled. No,
she would not look at him.
“And it was to make you sleep, I told you that
last evening.” This time she directed her words at Cody.
“So if we were asleep, why are you tied up?”
The woman went mute and Cody lunged forward,
nose-to-nose. Mariska blanched as his breath touched her cheek. The wolf
rumbled his approval. Now, she was paying attention.
“My father accused me of breaking our guesting
laws. This is my punishment.”
“To be lashed to a wagon?” Kid made no move to
intercede on her behalf. The boy needed answers, too. Cody wouldn’t hurt her.
“No.” Mariska growled the word and spared a
momentary glance at Kid before Cody surged up to block her line of sight. She
would need to learn to stop doing that.
“No, my punishment was to be left for Cody. He
won me through blood and bone and I have twice harmed him with betrayal coated
in friendship and guesting. I am to belong to him.”
Pleasure and annoyance thudded side-by-side
against his heart. The wolf was content with the idea of ripping her throat
out, but Cody stayed him. His kitten was furious, embarrassment riding high in
the color of her cheeks, just barely edging out the fear stinking the air.
She’d been abandoned by her people for her crime.
That was a hell of a punishment in and of
“She’s telling the truth,” Kid said out loud,
not that Cody needed the confirmation. The boy wavered to his feet, but Mariska
was smart this time, she didn’t look at him. So Cody turned his head.
The boy looked like hell.
“I’m going to throw up. You want to get out of
those ropes. Make nice with Cody. He’s pissed.” Kid began to stumble away.
“You’re leaving me here?” Mariska’s shriek stung
Cody’s ears and his head whipped around.
“Next time, don’t drug me and I’ll untie you.”
Kid waved her off and moments later the sound of his retching filled the air.
