Forced into marriage.
Chosen by Fire.
Determined to do what is right.
Seren will do anything to protect her people. Even if it means hiding the body of their dead ruler and telling a lie that could lead her to a brutal end.
As she struggles to accept her role as leader and fails to resist a mercenary she isn’t allowed to love, an army falls on her city. Seren fights to protect her friends—the only family she has left—but her newfound power turns a possible victory in to a storm of chaos.

Award-winning author Alisha Klapheke wants to infuse your life with unique magic, far-flung fantasy settings, and romance. Her inspiration springs from medieval art and artifacts, the world travel she enjoys with her husband, and the fantasy she grew up reading when she was supposed to be doing her math homework.

When she’s not writing, Alisha teaches Thai kickboxing, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and krav maga at her family’s dojo just outside of Nashville. That may be why writing fight scenes is her favorite.

​Kathleen Rushall of Andrea Brown Literary Agency represents Alisha in all things books.

  1. Generous giveaway. I always wonder if authors come up with all the titles of books within a series before they start writing?

  2. Thank you for sharing about these books! I hadn’t heard of them and I’m digging this cover art. I can’t wait to read them.
