A Choice of Crowns

A CHOICE OF CROWNS
A Dark Glass Novel Book #2
by Barb Hendee
Genre: Historical Fantasy
Olivia Geroux knew her king was
reluctant to marry her, whatever the negotiations had arranged. But
she never expected to find handsome, arrogant King Rowan obsessed
with his stepsister instead. And before she can determine what course
to take, she overhears her greatest ally plotting to murder the
princess.
Olivia must act quickly—and live with
whatever chaos results. As the assassin hunts his prey, a magic
mirror appears to show Olivia the three paths that open before her .
. .
If she hesitates only a moment, the
princess will die—and she will become queen.
If she calls for help, she will gain
great power—but she must also thrust away her own happiness.
If she runs to stop the murder herself,
she will know love and contentment—but her whole country will
suffer.
As she lives out each path, her wits
and courage will be tested as she fights to protect her people, her
friends, and her heart. And deciding which to follow will be far from
easy . . .
THROUGH A DARK GLASS
A Dark Glass Novel Book 1
On her seventeenth birthday, Megan of
Chaumont discovers she’ll be sold as a bride to the brutish
Volodane family—within hours. Her father grants only that she may
choose which one of the ruthless, grasping lord’s three sons she
weds:
Rolf, the eldest: stern, ambitious, and loyal?
Sebastian, the second son: sympathetic, sly, and rebellious?
Or Kai, the youngest: bitter, brooding, and proud?
As shy, horrified Megan flees the
welcome dinner for her in-laws-to-be, she finds an enchanted mirror
that will display how her life unrolls with each man, as if she were
living it out in a breath. But there is no smooth “happily ever
after” in her choices.
Deaths and honors, joys and agonies,
intrigues and escapes await her in a remote, ramshackle keep, where
these rough but complex men reveal one side and then another of their
jagged characters—and bring forth new aspects of Megan, too. But
the decisions of one teenaged marriage-pawn reverberate much farther
than any of them have guessed . . .
