About the Book
Dire new threats face Queen Rejeena of Kriiscon and Aarvan, her queen’s man. Once again, they must battle treacherous forces determined to separate and destroy them. Queen Tabarana, favored ally of Great Queen Annannear, lusts for the delectable Aarvan. Determined to wrest him from Rejeena, she will stop at nothing to achieve her goal. Rejeena must outwit and challenge Tabarana without causing a reign of retaliation upon Rejeena’s quarter. The sinister cousin of Rejeena—outlaw leader Ishtabarra—desires to separate Aarvan from his queen and places a hefty bounty on his head even as her assassins stalk Rejeena. Aarvan must locate the hidden escape route of imprisoned outlaws to save the lives of seven honorable women, unjustly accused of outlaw affiliation. He knows a route out of those cells also can create access to the queen for Ishtabarra’s murderous forces. Animosity between Aarvan and Shabet, captain of the queen’s guard, deepens into hatred. To regain her former prominence and control, Shabet secretly gathers supporters and conspires to oust the queen’s man. How can Rejeena retain her queen’s man against so much opposition? How can Aarvan continue to secure his queen’s safety from her predatory cousin? The odds are overwhelming, and the two lovers must use every resource available to them if they are to survive.
About the Author
AnnaMarieAlt enjoys a passion for writing romantic fantasy fiction and building otherworldly realms. Her two careers, the military followed by civil service, exposed her to various cultures, races, religions, and beliefs stateside and abroad—England, Continental Europe, the Far East, the South, North, Southeast, Hawaii, and Kentucky, where she now resides. This exposure granted her a rounded view of the world and a host of invaluable knowledge that she now brings to her fantasy creations. These experiences, earning a college degree while surviving and supporting the women’s liberation movement, launched her understanding of herself as a woman and a writer. She writes to convey her myriad experiences—because she cannot not write—and to share the legacy of a lifetime and accept that we are all human. AnnaMarie has written the Queen’s Man series, an adventurous, romantic fantasy about the island of Kriiscon, where women rule and men are slaves. The series encompasses the struggle between a domineering but curse-haunted queen and a mysterious, audacious mainland man and the twisted struggle between women and men for supremacy, culminating in the battle of star-crossed empires. Her words expose the ugly underbelly of the human race and illumine the power of virtue while following the grinding agony of a culture in the throes of change. Fully grown, AnnaMarie wants to be just like Granny Clampett.
