PAGAN QUEEN is the continuation of PRINCESS OF BRETAGNE, starting a few years later, in 810. Although each novel is a complete story, the second book involves the same main characters in an intense plot, with lots of action, where Pressine, the heroine, has to face ruthless enemies and incredible obstacles. But do not fear, this is still a romantic novel, and she and her king will find their happiness in the end.... but I can guarantee you'll doubt it many times before it's all over.

PAGAN QUEEN is scheduled for release from Books We Love sometime this month, I don't know exactly when yet, but that release date will mark the end of the contest without warning, so do not wait.

In the meantime, you can find PRINCESS OF BRETAGNE, the book where this story started, in kindle for $2.99 HERE

This is what PAGAN QUEEN is about:

810 AD - Alba (Ancient Scotland)
Queen at last, Pressine brings victory to her beloved Elinas and prosperity to their growing kingdom. Still, she has to contend with the intrigues of Charlemagne's bishops, spurred by her Christian stepson. While Elinas, on the battlefield, remains unaware of his son’s machinations, Pressine fends off repeated assaults against her life. She also fears the curse that could bring her downfall. For the love of Elinas, she will tempt fate and become with child. But when her indomitable passion challenges the wrath of the Goddess Herself... can she win that battle?

Did I mention that Jimmy Thomas is on the cover of the first book, and I hope he is again on the cover of Pagan Queen, since that novel features the same hero.

Good luck in the contest.
