The Theodoric Saga
Anavrea is a green and verdant land. The government, stable for many generations, is in the care of the Theodoric family. But when the family falls apart, will the country follow? It all begins with two brothers. They share a father, but are otherwise very different. Their friend and loyal comrade-at-arms tells his tale as well. All of them, the runaway prince, the reluctant king, the patient soldier, and the servant of a nation, they all have their stories to tell.
The Crown of Anavrea
Labren is a man on the run with a price on his head. Injured and pursued by men intent on killing him, he lays down ready to die, except he isn't alone.
Eve, a slave girl out searching for berries, refuses to stand by and let him be cut down. Risking her life for the stranger, she intervenes.
Those decisions, hers to help and his to live, set them off on an adventure that neither of them expects.
In a time when castles were the strongest…in a place where combat was face to face…Labren was on the run. He hid his true name and he admitted it freely.
In a time when slavery was legal...in a place where kings were all-powerful…Eve, a slave, appeared in the right place at the right time.
Eve saved his life. In return, he offered her the opportunity of freedom. She did not know what would happen to her if she chose to accept his proposal, but she did know the consequences of rejecting it.
The King of Anavrea
A reluctant king, a blind queen, and a marriage that sparked a rebellion...
Ireic Theodoric, King of Anavrea, constantly battles with his council over who will run the country. When the council insists on a treaty with Sardmara, he agrees. However, the treaty quickly becomes an arranged marriage. Ireic offers up himself for the sake of Anavrea. But after he signs, no princess appears.
Lirth Parnan, only daughter of the king of Sardmara, survives alone in a cold, damp tower room. Baron Tor kidnapped her in an attempt to control her father. No one came to claim her. She suspects her father considers her flawed beyond use in his political games. After five years of waiting, her hope of rescue wanes with her health.
After Ireic fights his way into Lirth’s tower, he realizes the depths of her father’s deception. Instead of being an answer to his problems, Lirth creates new ones. The council will not accept her as queen, but Ireic has sworn an oath that he will marry her. His choice could cost him his throne, perhaps his life.
The Reward of Anavrea
She couldn’t hide forever.
A hard life taught Jayne to avoid men, powerful men most of all. When a new nobleman arrives to take over the vargar, she takes her family and hides. But the new baron seeks her out and makes her an offer she can’t refuse: protection. However, once they were sheltered behind the dark stone walls of the vargar, who would protect her from the new master?
His reward isn’t what it seems.
King Ireic of Anavrea charges Liam, a former bodyguard, with the task of retaking and taming a corner of the northern wilds. Upon arrival at Ashwyn Vargar, Liam finds challenges beyond his military experience. The keys to the vargar are missing and so are the field hands who should be harvesting the fields. Once he finds the keeper of the keys, she raises more questions than answers.
The Servant of Anavrea
The eldest son of Eve and Labren Theodoric has taken upon himself to serve Anavrea in his father's place. The price of his service means playing spy, ambassador, or smuggler as the situation demands.
