The Consolation Prize

Brides of Karadok Book 3

Princess Una harbors no illusions about her claims to Karadok’s throne. The last of her ill-fated line, she is just grateful she emerged from the dark days of war with her head still on her shoulders. After three years under house arrest, she is keen to start her own life afresh, hopefully in relative obscurity. What she does not realize is the extraordiary scheme the King has devised to find her a suitable bridegroom.

Armand de Bussell is a rogue who shirks his duties and does as he pleases. How anyone could think him fit for a princess is a mystery to him. He neither wants nor needs a wife in his life. At least… that’s what he always thought before he met the Blechmarsh princess.

The Consolation Prize is is a stand-alone novel of over 99,000 words and is set in a medieval style landscape in the fictional kingdom of Karadok. Please do not purchase if you are offended by strong language and or sex scenes.
