Aubrianne is a spirited young woman whose very character contradicts itself. Compassionate and strong, she is both healer and warrior. And her hero is exactly what she dreams of: imperfect. Even his lighthearted name, Larkin, is at odds with his fierce nature. Both characters must overcome their pasts before they can accept each other and find love. Their first hurdle is surviving Aubrianne’s husband, Lord Roger, a golden man with a streak as cruel as iron. With treason, murder, and passionate sex, this novel has all the components that today’s readers desire most.
From Wild Lavender:
“…I am the woman who has always loved you. I am the people of Stolweg and Chevring: their protector, their guide, their friend. And, I am you: a person who is willing to do anything to protect those he or she loves, even if it means killing another without thought or hesitation. I am Anna, Lark. I am not ashamed of who I am.”—Lady Aubrianne of Stolweg
More on Wild Lavender:
Aubrianne, Anna to her friends, was born of Chevring, a territory renowned for its valorous war horses, in the kingdom of Aurelia. But peace reigns, and her family’s fortune has dwindled. Her father brokers an alliance with the wealthy Lord Roger of Stolweg. The price: his eldest daughter and the secrets to her family’s once great power. Soon after they are wed, Roger proves himself cruel and calculating, a harsh lord who sows the seeds of fear in his people.
He has an ambitious secret, and nothing will stand in his way. Not his new bride, nor his older brother, heir to all that he covets. But secrets have a way of getting out, and the people of Stolweg quietly bide their time, coming to love Anna for her noble bravery in standing up to her scoundrel husband. She will prove the leader they need to rise up and bring their underground resistance to flourish.
But it is Larkin, a guard of Aurelia, whose presence brings Roger’s treachery to the forefront, igniting the spark of war. Larkin comes to Stolweg to investigate Roger for treason against the realm and ends up giving all of his attention to Anna. For she not only captures his heart, she may be the only person who can stop the battle that will tear the kingdom apart.
