Karadok: A Glimpse of What's to Come



Hi All


Just wanted to apologise for not updating this blog more often! I promise I am working hard on Lord Kentigern’s story and still hope for it to be released in June time (2021). I’m pretty much pouring all my efforts into that, which is why I barely have an online presence to speak of! So sorry 😢 I know that it is an area that I really fall down on. I hope you will all let me off the hook this time!


Having said that, I have finally figured out working titles for both Sir Jeffree de Crecy and Jane Cecil’s stories and I am sorely tempted to remain in Karadok for the rest of the summer to write another bride’s tale… Please find two new blurbs for future stories below!




An Inconvenient Vow

Never did Sabina Burrell imagine that foiling a plot against her sister would lead to her having to wed the arrogant Sir Jeffree de Crecy! She has never met such a loathsome man, and that included her late husband!

Sir Jeffree, raised in the expectation of succeeding to his uncle’s title, is appalled to become ensnared in a scheme to discredit his uncle’s new bride. The whole thing is beneath his dignity, as is the shameless young widow who denounces him in front of everyone and makes him look a fool!

Jeffree will do anything to salvage his honor, even if it means wedding a woman he despises. Revenge will be sweet indeed, ensuring Sabina pays for what she did. What he does not anticipate, is that his own long-prized vow of chastity will be so very sorely tried…




The Favorite

Alisander de Balon, fifth Viscount Bardulf is a lot of things. Ambassador. Diplomat. Spy. He is also bored as hell at the Argent King’s court. His only diversion these days is tormenting staid Jane Cecil, the Queen’s favorite Lady-in-Waiting. Seeing her vexed amuses him more than any royal entertainment.

Jane has finally found her place at Court, and it is among the Queen’s retinue. All she wants to do is faithfully serve Her Majesty, something she could do in peace if it was not for the Queen’s countryman, Viscount Bardulf, who seems to delight in baiting her!

Neither Bardulf nor Jane could have foreseen the sudden tragedy that leads to their hasty union and certainly, neither of them could have anticipated that they would fall so easily into different roles… that of husband and wife.




I hope the above sound like future instalments of Brides of Karadok that you would like to read!


Take care all,


From Alice x

I hope this message find you well!

I finished An Inconvenient Vow not long ago and I got to say it has become my favorite Brides of Karadok book so far! Sabina was so perfect, I truly loved how strong AND funny she was! She was a very different kind of heroine from your all your previous books and it was a very welcome surprise!


Also I'm a bit curious about about a book you mentioned you were interested in writing, I believe its title was "A most forgettable girl"... if you don't mind me asking; why was is pushed back and do you still plan to write it? I'm also dying to find out which knight will be/would hav…

So sorry I am only just seeing this comment! I am so glad you enjoyed An Inconvenient Vow. Re: your question, Gunnilde’s book is still in the works, it is just that I was having a few issues with it! This question has just prompted me to write a blog post about what I am currently working on where I explain what has been going on, it should be uploaded shortly. Apologies for not seeing this earlier, I can’t think how it slipped past me. I need to be more vigilant.

I am sooooooo loving An Inconvient Vow!!!! I waited to start it until my day off cuz I knew this would be a marathon read (and I was right, not quite half done but there will be no sleep until the end 🥰). The chemistry between Jeffree and Sarah is PERFECT!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful world ❤️❤️❤️ And, like I always do whenever there’s a new book, I’ll go back to the beginning and re-read them all lol.

Hi Alice,


I am from India, you and your books are so famous here.

Yes your books plots are setting new patterns in Medivial Era Romance as none other writers have thought of " Prizefighter". Within itself word "Prizefighter" was new to me first time when I read the title.

And also there so many things new in your romances that's like fresh breeze in midst continuous hot climate.

Soon we will see lot of writers theme on Prizefighter🤗.


I am so happy to have discovered you.


Eagerly waiting for the New Release.

Truly love the Kardok series. The world building is lush and I am excited to see more characters fleshed out with their own HEA. Looking forward especially to Kentigern’s story, maybe even a few hints of how Renlow is faring at knighthood. Typically tend to read mostly sci-fi/fantasy but super happy when goodreads/Amazon recommended the Kardok series - ripped through that and the prizefighters in 4 days. Seriously thank you for the amazing reads and the high bar setting introduction into historical romance. Any chance that the Gunhilde story is still in the works, too?

Ah thank you Katherine! So glad you're enjoying the series and that you're looking forward to Kentigern's story. Renlow appears in it a handful of times so you will get an update on how he is faring. Gunnilde's book is definitely still scheduled, though the order I will be writing them is not entirely set in stone. Thanks so much for your kind words and support.
