He saved her life. Now she’s wondering why.

Rose will never escape the castle. The guards have caught her every time she’s tried. After thirteen years imprisoned in her tower, she’s resigned to her fate of an arranged marriage to a vain, tiresome, and/or brutish prince. Until she meets Dustan.

Dustan isn’t like the other princes who’ve come. He’s kind and asks Rose her thoughts. But Rose discovers that Dustan harbors a secret—he may not be a prince… or human.

Too soon, her father chooses a different suitor, a sinister one with a wicked plan. After Dustan saves Rose’s life, she follows him into the forest. Rose hopes to hide from both her fiancé and her father. But can she trust Dustan, or does he have a hidden agenda—or does that even matter, if they’re falling in love?

The Forest Bride is a light-hearted romp on the romance end of the fantasy-romance spectrum. If you’re a fan of Kerrelyn Sparks’s How to Love Your Elf or you’ve imagined an adult Ella Enchanted who makes love with Prince Charmont, The Forest Bride is for you. Note: The Forest Bride contains love scenes—if you don’t want to read love scenes, please check out the PG version.

Avianna’s broke. She owes the landlady two months’ rent. And toiling as a laundry maid is destroying her best asset—her looks. She has to act fast if she hopes to lure Tom Doolihan into marriage.

Tom’s handsome and rich . . . and boring. And Avianna can’t stop thinking about her friend Thorn. Thorn, who always quietly supports her. Thorn, who actually talks to her, unlike most men. Thorn, who’s starting to look far too attractive.

Thorn, who’s a fairy and can cast love spells.

Then pirates swarm the village, and Avianna ends up imprisoned on their ship. Only one person cares enough to come after her—Thorn. Love spell or not, Avianna won’t get to sort it out if the pirates kill them. Can Thorn’s magic save them? If not, Avianna better find a way to rescue them both.

The Village Maid is a relatable story in a lighthearted setting with fun magic—the perfect escape. If you like Sophie Kinsella novels, but wish they had fairies and magic, The Village Maid is for you.
