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.
Hated that cliffhanger ending from Bound by Birthright? No worries! The sequel, Bound to Endure, is now available for purchase! Part of a five star review from Chelsie on Bound to Endure says, “I would really recommend this series. The second book was even better than the first. I cant wait to read the final book in the trilogy which is coming out July 18th.”
After narrowly escaping marauding pirates, Arabella has returned to safety and is ready to go through with her arranged marriage.
The human Prince Phillip isn’t who she wants to wed, but he was chosen by her parents to unite the elven and human realms. Arabella has fought her way through too many death threats and attacks to give up on this important goal, although the pirate Captain Smythe remains set on keeping the two countries enemies.
With the odds and her own heart against her, Arabella must overcome forces beyond her control if she’s to forge peace between the kingdoms.

Can I just tell you how excite I am about this book? I’m over the moon about it. I can’t wait until its release June 6th! Not much longer until you guys can read Arabella’s story! But I know that’s not what you’re hear for today. Without further ado, here is the cover for Bound by Birthright:
Elven princess Arabella is set to marry the human Prince Phillip but her countrymen do not hesitate to express their anger with her parents’ attempt to improve relations with the humans. With death threats plaguing her, Arabella is forced into hiding.
When her sanctuary is usurped by pirates, Arabella goes on the run with humans who vow to help and keep her safe. She finds herself drawn to one of the humans, the dashing Robert, who steals her heart.
Arabella would like nothing more than time to get to know Robert better, but with pirates attacking and her wedding date approaching, time is one thing she doesn’t have. Arabella’s on a flight for her life and must reconcile with the truth—she can never be with the one she wants.
As the last book of the Mine series is published, I find myself both excited and a little sad. It’s exciting to finally be able to share the entire story with you, but it’s also sad to leave the characters behind. I hope you’ve enjoyed the journey as much as I have. And don’t worry, there will be more books in other series to come! But for now, here is Sacrifice of Mine, Bethany’s story.
