What are things you look for in a fantasy novel? What sweeps you off your feet and transports you to another time and place where anything is possible? Is it a beautiful cover? Lush descriptions? Intelligent prose? Witty banter? Romance? Adventure?
Then I have just the novel for you.
The fate of Plenilune hangs on the election of the Overlord, for which Rupert de la Mare and his brother are the only contenders, but when Rupert’s unwilling bride-to-be uncovers his plot to murder his brother, the conflict explodes into civil war.
To assure the minds of the lord-electors of Plenilune that he has some capacity for humanity, Rupert de la Mare has been asked to woo and win a lady before he can become the Overlord, and he will do it—even if he has to kidnap her.
En route to Naples to catch a suitor, Margaret Coventry was not expecting a suitor to catch her.
Oh, but he does catch her. What ensues is a splendid, gut-wrenching, glorious romp that leaves you with that feeling of, “Wait….what do you mean, it isn’t real?”
I have been waiting for this novel for well over a year. I had the pleasure of reading a digital copy, but I need – physically need – a real copy in my hands, stat.
So do you.
If that wasn’t enough to convince you, take a gander at this cover. Is that not the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?
Intrigued? Interested? Do you want a thick, brilliant novel you can sink your literary teeth into and thoroughly enjoy? Trust me – this is the one for you. (You see my zeal for this novel? I’m not faking. Not even an ounce. Support Jenny, an excellent friend of mine, and support me, an avid supporter and unabashed fangirl.)
AND GET ME A COPY WHILE YOU’RE AT IT.
