I am super excited to announce the completion of my next novel Rosaline’s Curse! This book will be available in late June and I will offer advanced review copies before then! Follow my blog to stay updated!
Rosaline’s ex-fiancé is an evil god.
At least, that’s what he claims to be. He could be a purple gnome for all Rosaline cares, she just wants him out of her life.
Unfortunately, his presence is the result of a curse she brought upon herself when she stole the sacred relics of Ilona the Godslayer.
Since the ill-advised theft, her luck changed for the worse in several ways.
Her brother died, she was betrothed to that awful swine, and put into an enchanted sleep for almost eight hundred years. To add insult to injury, her fiancé was somehow still alive when she woke up.
It seems the only way to turn her luck around and get rid of her evil ex, is to return the relics she stole.
Unfortunately, a lot changed while she was in that enchanted sleep. For one thing, everyone now spends most of their time staring at the magic rectangles they keep in their pockets. For another thing, moving human bones across international borders requires a permit.
It seems if Rosaline is to return the relics and break her curse, she has to learn to navigate this new and remarkable world of paperwork and machines.
Luckily, she gets a little help from a friend.
Mark Reid is working toward a master’s degree in forensic anthropology. His near-perfect life is turned upside down when what he thinks is a perfectly preserved eight hundred-year-old corpse turns out to be a princess who is still very much alive.
Now, he must help her integrate into the modern world while somehow convincing her that this holy quest to return the relics she stole is a bad idea.
This book is a spin-off to my last novel Love, Treachery, and Other Terrors. While it is not necessary to read this book to follow the plot of Rosaline’s Curse, I recommend it since there are a number of callbacks.
If you are looking for a fun, light-hearted, fantasy novel full of cultural collisions, romance, and adventure, this is the book for you!
Rosaline’s Curse is appropriate for adults 15 and up. It does not contain graphic content, but it deals with some mature themes. If your child reads it, they may be confused and ask some awkward questions about why Rosaline is so scandalized by twenty-first-century university life. And you don’t want to explain that right now, you just want to cook dinner and pass out.
