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.

Genre:

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.

Raging
Sea
The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 3
by
Kim Iverson Headlee
Genre:
Historical Fantasy 
 
Outcast,
clanless, and but a junior officer in Arthur the Pendragon’s army,
Angusel struggles to rebuild the life stolen from him through
betrayal by the person he had held most dear. His legion allegiance
thrusts him onto the campaign trail as one of Arthur’s forward
scouts, stalking Angli troops and being among the first to clash with
these vicious enemies at every turn. But the odds loom high against
him and his sword-brothers, and they will need a miracle just to
survive.

 

 

Pressured
to make the best choice to ensure her clan’s future leadership,
Eileann struggles with her feelings for Angusel, whose outcast status
makes him forbidden to her as a mate. When Angli treachery threatens
everyone she loves, she vows to thwart their violent plan to conquer
her clan. But she is no warrior, she has no soldiers to command, and
she will need a miracle just to survive.

 

 

How
can one soldier make a difference? How can one woman save her kin and
clan? In the crucible of combat, Angusel must surrender to the will
of the gods, and Eileann must invoke divine power to forge the most
dangerous warrior the world has ever known.

Morning’s
Journey
The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 2
 
“Magnificent.”
~ Kathleen Foley, author of the Faith in Uniform series

 

 

In
a violent age when enemies besiege Brydein and alliances shift as
swiftly as the wind, stand two remarkable leaders: the Caledonian
warrior-queen Gyanhumara and her consort, Arthur the Pendragon. Their
fiery love is tempered only by their conviction to forge unity
between their disparate peoples. Arthur and Gyan must create an
impenetrable front to protect Brydein and Caledonia from land-lusting
Saxons and the marauding Angli raiders who may be massing forces in
the east, near Arthur’s sister and those he has sworn to
protect.

 

 

But
their biggest threat is an enemy within: Urien, Arthur’s rival and
the man Gyan was treaty-bound to marry until she broke that promise
for Arthur’s love. When Urien becomes chieftain of his clan, his
increase in wealth and power is matched only by the magnitude of his
hatred of Arthur and Gyan—and his threat to their infant
son.

 

 

Morning’s
Journey
,
sequel to the critically acclaimed 
Dawnflight,
propels the reader from the heights of triumph to the depths of
despair, through the struggles of some of the most fascinating
characters in all of Arthurian literature. Those struggles are
exacerbated by the characters’ own flawed choices. Gyan and Arthur
must learn that while extending forgiveness to others may be
difficult, forgiveness of self is the most excruciating—yet
ultimately the most healing—step of the entire journey.

The
Dragon’s Dove Chronicles Book 1
 
What
if King Arthur’s queen was every bit as heroic as he was? Find out
by immersing yourself in this epic story of the power couple whose
courage and conviction would shape the destiny of a nation.

 

 

Gyan
is a Caledonian chieftainess by birth, a warrior and leader of
warriors by training, and she is betrothed to Urien, a son of her
clan’s deadliest enemy, by right of Arthur the Pendragon’s
conquest of her people. For the sake of peace, Gyan is willing to
sacrifice everything…perhaps even her very life, if her foreboding
about Urien proves true.

 

 

Roman
by his father, Brytoni by his mother, and denied hereditary rulership
of his mother’s clan because of his mixed blood, Arthur has followed
his father’s path to become Dux Britanniarum, the Pendragon: supreme
commander of the northern Brytoni army. The Caledonians, Scots,
Saxons, and Angles keep him too busy to dwell upon his
loneliness…most of the time.

 

 

When
Gyan and Arthur meet, each recognize within the other their soul’s
mate. The treaty has preserved Gyan’s ancient right to marry any
man, providing he is a Brytoni nobleman—but Arthur does not
qualify. And the ambitious Urien, Arthur’s greatest political
rival, shall not be so easily denied. If Gyan and Arthur cannot
prevent Urien from plunging the Caledonians and Brytons back into
war, their love will be doomed to remain unfulfilled forever.

 

 

But
there is an even greater threat looming. The Laird of the Scots wants
their land and will kill all who stand in his way. Gyan, Arthur, and
Urien must unite to defeat this merciless enemy who threatens
everyone they hold dear.
