Coming in September to Amber Quill

Yesterday I got my cover art for my new science fiction romance!

Ravensatr's Bride has been on the drawing board for a long time and I'm thrilled to finally see the release date on the horizon.

Here's the blurb:

Princess Ra’Nara Lumina, destined for the throne of Cadeia, has fled her privileged life to escape the dark destiny that awaits her. Slated to be bred with her cruel cousin, Cleus Antioch, she can expect most of her children to die of a genetic illness borne in the genes of the royal family. To save her unborn heirs, she leaves the palace, but as long as she remains untouched by a man, she is still eligible to rule. Pursued by the ruthless Chancellor Kossa, who will do anything to see that succession of the throne is unbroken, Ra’Nara must find a man willing to claim her as his wife.

Istrian Merchant Captain Ravenstar Bren finds himself with a strange dilemma. To save the princess and the lives of her as yet unconceived offspring, he must claim her as his bride, but can he convince the proud people of his nomadic nation to accept a ‘land-born’ as the wife of their sovereign?

Stay tuned for more info on Ravenstar's Bride and go here, for a short excertpt!

This is a fabulous cover "Jennifer"! And the storyline sounds similar to what I had in mind for my second Shandar book;0) As in "space pirate" meets "princess". Though of course the h/h backgrounds are far different! I think I'll have to sock away a few bucks to download this enticing adventure!

Thanks, Kat and Skylar! I can't wait for it to come out. This is one of those stories that started with nothing more than a scene and turned into a novel.
