                                                                 ABOUT the BOOK

Garland Tate has a name that reminds her every day she lives in the Christmas-obsessed town of Thorpes. The holidays mean family time, and since her mother’s terminal illness, that’s something she wants to avoid.

The adopted heir of a wealthy Victorian-age family, Pete Darling anonymously distributes the family money to remaining relatives in need. He’s delighted to find the holiday spirit alive and well in magical, festive Thorpes, but he never expects the sassy, independent woman at the Lava Java will distract him from his duties and give him a reason to reveal his secrets.

As snow falls and hearts melt in the charming town of Thorpes, it may take a little extra magic and meddling to help Garland and Pete believe that a Christmas romance can last forever.

Medieval Paranormal Romance 
 
From
the award-winning pen of Kim Iverson Headlee comes the exciting,
poignant love story of a distressed damsel who wields a fierce
fireplace poker and the smoking hot knight she must save from
himself.

 

 

“Captivating!”
~ Kemberlee Lugo-Shortland, Heart of Fiction

 

 

Sir
Robert Alain de Bellencombre has been granted what every man wants: a
rich English estate in exchange for his valiant service at the Battle
of Hastings. To claim this reward, the Norman knight must wed the
estate’s Saxon heiress. Most men would leap at such an opportunity,
but for Alain, who broke his vow to his dying mother by failing to
protect his youngest brother in battle, it means facing more easily
broken vows. But when rumors of rampant thievery, dangerous beasts,
and sorcery plaguing a neighboring estate reach his ears, nothing
will make him shirk duty to king and country when people’s lives
stand at risk. He assumes the guise of a squire to scout the land,
its problems, and its lady.

 

 

Lady
Kendra of Edgarburh has been granted what no woman wants: a forced
marriage to an enemy who may be kith or kin to the man who murdered
her beloved brother. Compounding her anguish is her failure to awaken
the miraculous healing gift bequeathed by their late mother in time
to save his life. Although with his dying breath, he made her promise
to seek happiness above all, Kendra vows that she shall find neither
comfort nor love in the arms of a Norman… unless it snows in
July.

 

 

Alain
is smitten by Lady Kendra from the first moment of their meeting;
Kendra feels the forbidden allure of the handsome and courtly Norman
“squire.” But a growing evil overshadows everyone, invoking
dark forces and ensnaring Kendra in a plot to overthrow the king
Alain is oath-bound to serve. Kendra and Alain face a battle unlike
any other as their honor, their love, their lives, and even their
very souls lie in the balance.

How hard would you fight for a chance at love across a vast social divide?

How
hard would you fight for a chance at love across a vast social
divide?

 

 

Epic.”
~ Drue’s Random Chatter Reviews.

 

 

Betrayed
by her father and sold as payment of a Roman tax debt to fight in
Londinium’s arena, gladiatrix-slave Rhyddes feels like a wild beast
in a gilded cage. Celtic warrior blood flows in her veins, but Roman
masters own her body. She clings to her vow that no man shall claim
her soul, though Marcus Calpurnius Aquila, son of the Roman governor,
makes her yearn for a love she believes impossible.

 

 

Groomed
to follow in his father’s footsteps and trapped in a politically
advantageous betrothal, Aquila prefers the purity of combat on the
amphitheater sands to the sinister intrigues of imperial politics,
and the raw power and athletic grace of the flame-haired Libertas to
the adoring deference of Rome’s noblewomen.

 

 

When
a plot to overthrow Caesar ensnares them as pawns in the dark design,
Aquila must choose between the Celtic slave who has won his heart and
the empire to which they both owe allegiance. Trusting no man and
knowing the opposite of obedience is death, the only liberty offered
to any slave, Rhyddes must embrace her arena name, Libertas—and the
love of a man willing to sacrifice everything to forge a future with
her.

 

 

WINNER,

How sick are you of US politics? How doomed is the world because of who has claimed the Oval Office throne—er, chair?

King
Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court
by
Kim Iverson Headlee
Genre:
SciFi Time Travel Fantasy
 
How
sick are you of US politics? How doomed is the world because of who
has claimed the Oval Office throne—er, chair?

 

 

Refresh
your spirit by laughing along with what Mark Twain might have written
about today’s political falderal.

 

 

Solidly
entertaining.” —Publishers Weekly

 

 

WINNER
2016 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal for Science Fiction &
Fantasy.

 

 

Morgan
le Fay, sixth-century Queen of Gore and the only major character not
killed off by Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s
Court, vows revenge upon the Yankee Hank Morgan. She casts a spell to
take her to 1879 Connecticut so she may waylay Sir Boss before he can
travel back in time to destroy her world. But the spell misses by 300
miles and 200 years, landing her in the Washington, D.C., of 2079,
replete with flying limousines, hovering office buildings,
virtual-reality television, and sundry other technological
marvels.

 

 

Whatever
is a time-displaced queen of magic and minions to do? Why, rebuild
her kingdom, of course—two kingdoms, in fact: as Campaign Boss for
the reelection of American President Malory Beckham Hinton, and as
owner of the London Knights world-champion baseball
franchise.

 

 

Written
as though by the old master himself, King Arthur’s Sister in
Washington’s Court by Mark Twain as channeled by Kim Iverson
Headlee offers laughs, love, and a candid look at American society,
popular culture, politics, baseball… and the human heart.

 

 

Mark
Twain began work on A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court in
1879—the same year the Yankee Hank Morgan departed for his sojourn
in sixth-century Britain. The first edition was published in 1889 and
features more than 200 illustrations by the man who later would
become founder of the Boy Scouts of America, Daniel Carter Beard.
These illustrations are now in the public domain, and a handful have
been incorporated into King Arthur’s Sister in Washington’s Court as
an artistic homage to this classic edition of the first time travel
story in all literature.
