The Warrior’s Prize, which is Elizabeth’s book and #4 of my True Love Brides series, will be available on December 29. The book manuscript has just gone back to my editor again, and I expect that few of you will be surprised that Rafael insisted upon telling the story his way instead of mine. I had originally thought that Elizabeth and Rafael’s romance would begin at Christmas at Kinfairlie, but as soon as I dug into the story, I realized that it had to begin when they first meet at Ravensmuir, because that’s when they begin to influence each other. So, the beginning of The Warrior’s Prize now overlaps the ending of The Frost Maiden’s Kiss in terms of time – but there are scenes we didn’t witness in Malcolm and Catriona’s book, and perspectives we didn’t see.
I’m really happy with the shape of the book – Rafael was right! – and can’t wait for you to read it, too. As a result of this change, though, I’ve updated the excerpt from the book on the website. The cover copy will be tweaked before publication as well, but I’m waiting on my editor’s input on that. You might want to hop on over and read the new excerpt this morning. 🙂
Remember also that there’s a Goodreads Giveaway still in process, with ten signed trade paperback copies of the book available to be won. You can enter for a chance to win, right here.
