They call me the Night Queen, with a heart as dark as the night itself. No light shall ever touch my broken heart again.
When tragedy strikes young Princess Mina, the devastated girl vows to never love again.
Years later, on her twentieth birthday, the beautiful but cold princess stands by her promise. Unwilling to be married off to a warmongering Northerner, she defies her father, the mighty King of the Rhine, and ridicules all her potential suitors.
Furious at her behavior, her father vows to give Mina’s hand in marriage to the first unmarried man who walks through the palace gates—be it nobleman or beggar. And when a penniless soldier arrives at the castle the following day to ask for work, the king stands by his word and offers Mina to him.
But the princess has plans of her own. She can’t stand the soldier, yet offers him a deal; help her flee in return for riches.
Stuck together on a dangerous journey through war-torn lands, Mina and her compelling companion realize that the delicate line between hate and love might be thinner than both are willing to admit…
From the author: This is a spicy fairy tale retelling of the long-forgotten German fairy tale King Thrushbeard. It was one of the first stories to use the enemies to lovers and forced marriage romance tropes. The original story was first published for adults by the beloved Brothers Grimm (whose works include such classics as Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and Rapunzel). If you’d love to read a dark fantasy romance for adults and enjoy steamy romance books, this is a must-read.
This is the FIRST book in a series. The second book, Queen of Ashes, will be released in September and is available here on Amazon.
