Romance, Fantasy, BDSM
Book One of The Shanhasson Trilogy, now available at
The Rose of Shanhasson is a superb blend of fully-realized fantasy and scorching romance. Joely Sue Burkhart dropped me into her fantasy world and left me breathless. The Rose of Shanhasson is one of the best fantasy romances I’ve read in years! ~ Larissa Ione, New York Times Bestselling Author
As Our Blessed Lady’s last Daughter, Shannari must rule as High Queen or the Green Lands will fall into eternal darkness. Her destiny is to shine against the Shadow, protect the land and people with her magic, and keep the Blackest Heart of Darkness imprisoned. Her blood is the key, powered by the love in her heart. However, Shannari’s heart is broken, her magic is crippled, and the nobles must have forgotten the dire prophesies, because everyone wants her dead.
Only love can restore her magic, but her scars testify how love can be corrupted. So when a barbarian warlord conquers her army and professes a love like no other, Shannari’s first instinct is to kill the mighty Khul. Even worse, one of the Khul’s guards used to be an assassin–a very skilled assassin, if the darkness in the Blood’s eyes is any indication. The same darkness festers deep in her heart and draws her to the wickedly dangerous man as inexorably as his Khul’s unshakable honor. Her weakening heart is not only torn between love and duty, but also between two magnificent warriors.
Yet neither warrior will be able to help her when Shadow calls her name.
Warnings: Explicit sex, BDSM, violence, a barbarian warlord, an assassin, and a woman who not only wields a sword but might also kill both warriors.
I want more…and a Gregar doll.
The characters and their world will haunt me for the rest of my life
Rose of Shanhasson is a gritty, sweaty great start to what I believe will be a promising trilogy.
There is a darkness and a desperation that can only be combatted by the power and light of love.
Smoothly written this is romantic and racy with some steamy scenes that will make any reader blush.
