Ever since Nikon entered Cassandra’s life, she’s gone from a peaceful existence to a world of danger and answers she never wanted—except about her parents possibly being alive. Though her parents caused her to go blind, Cassandra still wants to know what happened to them. But with warriors patrolling the streets and targeting members of the rebellion, both she and Nikon are reluctant to take on a perilous search for her family.
When warriors are sent to oust the two of them, Nikon and Cassandra quickly find themselves fleeing for their lives. With the rebellion struggling, there’s few people to aid them unless they find a way to pull the rebels together.
While on the run, Cassandra and Nikon must race to find her parents and help fight against the Reding and Vading’s iron rule.

After five and a half(ish) years of writing, I’m thrilled to announce book number twenty!
This is such a huge accomplishment for me. I never thought I would be here, and yet, the books keep pouring out of me. With book twenty, Sacrifice for the Chosen, I am finishing the Mother of the Chosen series. It’s an exciting yet sad time. I’m happy to have completed it, but sad to see it go. On to more books!
If you would like to purchase Sacrifice for the Chosen, you can do so at the following retailers and other places as well.
I’m not going to add a description here because I don’t want to spoil anything for you. Instead, I’ve put the names of the other books in the series below, so you can search for them if you’re interested. Thank you for all your support!
The books go in the following order:
Mother of the Chosen (Mother of the Chosen #1)
Protector of the Chosen (Mother of the Chosen #2)
Guardian of the Chosen (Mother of the Chosen #3)
Sacrifice for the Chosen (Mother of the Chosen #4)
I’m thrilled to have my latest book released, Mother of the Chosen. It has been in my head for a long time, so it see it finally coming to light is beyond awesome. Adriella, the main character, has always wanted a child. When she finally becomes pregnant, a royal decree says that any child must be killed to protect the High King from prophecy. What ensues is a mad dash for Adriella and her baby’s life.
Reviews are coming in and people are loving the series as much as I enjoyed writing it. As a warning–yes, it does end in a cliffhanger, but the next book should be coming out the end of July. So, you shouldn’t have too long of a wait until Adriella’s story continues.
Links are below. Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear your opinion!
Adriella is pregnant with the child she’s always wanted.
She can’t wait to share the joy with her husband. Prophecy has other plans. The countryside is a ablaze with rumors of a soon-to-be-born child who will destroy the High King.
A royal decree demands the death of any child who could threaten the throne, including Adriella’s unborn baby. Worse, her husband is one of the soldier’s enlisted to carry out the king’s demands.
Now Adriella must keep her secret and flee, rather than celebrate with her spouse.
With the High King’s men searching for anyone who defies him, the country is full of grieving parents, and the streets run red with the blood of the innocents. Adriella knows her chances of survival are slim, but she’ll sacrifice everything to stay one step ahead of the law.
If she can’t evade capture, she’ll lose the one thing more precious to her than her own life—her child.
A queen without the hope of her country is no queen at all. Knowing this, Ryn undertakes the challenge of regaining the trust and favor of her people, though her chance to do so is slipping through her fingers. To make matters worse, Ranen may be dead, but Daros is actively hunting her, distracting her from her royal duties. With her concentration already split between revenge and duty, she isn’t sure she can handle the new obstacle thrown into her path—a couple who claim to be her long-lost parents.
Despite the turbulent circumstances, Ryn decides to open her arms to her newfound family, but trusting them won’t come easy. As the fight for her country continues, Ryn vows to protect the parents she never thought she’d have. But Ryn’s subjects are restless and she’ll have to find a way to appease them while juggling her new family life… or risk losing it all.

Ryn finally has a name, and a chance at life now that Daros has been taken to the dungeons. Or at least she did until he escaped. Not knowing whether to be scared or filled with rage, Ryn sets her guards out to find him.
As much as she wants to help, Ryn must be the Queen her people needs. Or try to be. There’s much she needs to do, but she sees Daros everywhere, hunting her. No one can seem to catch Daros, despite her spotting him, and his ruthlessness knows no bounds. When the unthinkable happens, Ryn must face her fears or lose all she’s gained.
I can’t believe release time is here for Death’s Queen. I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you! My nameless assassin is ready to kick some butt! The whole process with this book has been a roller coaster of emotions for me. I hope you enjoy this story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
An assassin without a name, born to kill. Owned by a vicious man who refuses to call her anything but girl, she is forced to commit atrocious acts of violence. Vowing to take her future into her own hands, the seventeen-year-old decides to risk everything on one act of defiance—drinking from The Death Drink. The beverage kills most whose lips touch it—only allowing those who are destined to be royalty survive the first sip.
Powerful. Revered. Hunted.
To the astonishment of the nation of Valcora, she imbibes it and lives, which crowns her queen. Thrown into a life of royal intrigue, she now has a purpose—to rule with the fairness she was never shown. Despite her altruistic plans, it becomes apparent that someone wants her dead. The new queen must use her training from the former life she only wants to forget in order to stay alive long enough to turn her kingdom into something she can be proud of. She’ll hold onto the crown… or die trying.
