KINGDOM OF CELOSIA:
HEARTS ON FIRE AMONGST COLD SHADOWS
Princess Faith faces a life of duty to the Kingdom of Celosia, but she dreams of freedom.
She is daily reminded of the burden she will one day carry as she is educated to become a Queen...
The greatest of these reminders is a pendant given to her by her mother which is imbued with magical properties. Matters of the heart also hinder Faith from accepting her role. She is engaged to Prince Merek, but has no feelings for him. She secretly longs for true love, despite the fact that her rank keeps her from loving the man she desires most, the stable-hand Justus. Feeling trapped by the arrangement, there is little she wouldn't consider doing to stop the wedding, but it seems her fate is sealed.
On the borders of their land is the Dark Forest, a home for many creatures with elemental powers of untold might. In that realm, the Troll King plots to kill her father and the wolves in his court are on the hunt for her, believing she is easy prey. But Faith is much stronger than they suspect, and against all odds, she sets out to protect those she loves.
Armed with her bow, riding on the back of her trusted mount, Ruby, she must confront the forces of evil that threaten to take everything from her and conquer them in the name of Celosia.
KINGDOM OF CELOSIA:
My name is Destiny, a fact I appreciate, since I've always felt like I have one.
I live in the fast lane, which runs right through a world of expensive cars, designer bags, and top-of-the-line everything else – none of which I get to experience. I'm not fancy; I never have been. If there's one thing I know, it's that the world is quick to put labels on everyone and everything, but what a label can't do, is tell you who you really are.
I've come a long way from who I used to be. Ten years ago, I was dependent on others, lacking in direction, and ... in love with Sebastian Medina.
He captured me with his chocolate-brown eyes and his reckless heart. I gave him everything I had to offer back then, even the most sacred parts of my heart and body. When he left, he took my virginity with him. My heart was in tatters.
So, I started trying to put the pieces back together. I went to law school, became independent. Now, he's come back, and the only thing I haven't been able to do is mend my broken heart.
I've followed my intuition, and let him back into my life, but it's carried with it a price. His past has come to haunt us, and the life I've carefully constructed for myself is in danger of being lost ...
