PROMO: The Chosen

The Chosen - PROMO Blitz
By Annette Gisby
M/M Fantasy Romance
Date Published: 6/15/2013

The neighbouring kingdoms of Oscia and Arcathia have been at a tentative peace for three years after centuries of warfare. Prince Severin of Arcathia has been brought up to put duty before all else and as the only son of the King and Queen, it is his duty to marry and produce an heir. His parents want him to marry an Oscian princess to cement that tentative peace. Unfortunately Severin isn't interested in princesses. Now, if he had his pick of princes that would be another matter.

Havyn has been a slave all his life. When his aptitude for wizardry is discovered, he finds himself purchased and freed by Prince Severin and apprenticed to the royal wizard, Ildar. His duty is to stay chaste to keep his powers strong, but his feelings for Severin sorely test his resolve.

With kingdoms at war, the throne hanging in the balance, magic in the air, and outside forces trying to keep them apart, can the two men find happiness together, or is duty more important than love?


At the large wrought iron gates, they were stopped by two guards who crossed two lances in front of them.
Halt! Who goes there?”
Chayal, is that any way to greet your prince?” growled Ildar, glaring at the guard.
By the Raven! It is you.” Chayal and the other guard sank to one knee, bowing their heads, the sun glinting off their metal helmets.
Get up, you two,” said Severin. “You know I hate all that.”
The guards got up and grinned at the party. “Kelandras going to kill you, you know that, right?” asked Chayal.
What are you on about now, Chayal?” said a female voice from behind them. The woman had dark auburn hair done in two braids hanging down over her chest. On seeing the three of them beyond the guards, she stopped dead in her tracks and just stared. Unlike any other woman Havyn had ever seen, she wasnt wearing a gown, but wore a pair of breeches and an over tunic like the guards. Whereas their tunic was white with the black raven, hers was red with a golden sword on it. A sword hung from her left hip in a leather scabbard.
Hello, Kelandra.” Severin bowed from the waist.
Dont you hello Kelandra me,” she snarled, her hands on her hips. “What got into you? You were supposed to wait for me before you went on your journey. Running off like that without your guards. Its a wonder you werent killed! Your father blames me for not going with you. He didnt want you to go without a guard.”
You were just there,” said Severin. “You know its me hes angry with.”
Kelandra, let me introduce Havyn. He is to become my new apprentice,” said Ildar. Kelandra looked at Havyn and smiled.
Forgive my bad manners, Havyn. Be welcome in Arcathia.” She crossed both arms over her chest and bowed to him. Havyn stared. No one had ever bowed to him before.
Pleased to meet you, Princess Kelandra,” said Havyn, returning the same gesture. From the way she and Severin talked to each other, Havyn guessed they were brother and sister.
Kelandra laughed. “Oh, Im no princess, Havyn.”
Kelandra is a Daughter of the Sword,” said Ildar. “Shes one of Prince Severins bodyguards.”
girl bodyguard?” blurted Havyn before he could stop himself.
She laughed again. “Indeed, Havyn. You have a lot to learn about Arcathia.”
Kelandra, can you take Havyn to my mother? He was injured and may need some more tending,” said Severin. I had better face my father.”

About the Author:

Annette Gisby grew up in a small town in Northern Ireland, moving to London when she was seventeen. Being a very small town there were no bookshops and a small library. When she'd devoured every book she could get her hands on in the library, she started writing her own stories so she would always have something to read later.

When not writing she enjoys reading, cinema, theatre, walks along deserted beaches or wandering around ruined castles (great places for inspiration!) New Zealand is her favourite place and she hopes to travel back there one day. She's a fan of Japanese Manga and Anime and one day hopes to learn Japanese.

She currently lives in Hampshire with her husband, a collection of porcelain dolls and stuffed penguins and enough books to fill a small library. It's diminishing gradually since the discovery of ebooks but still has a long way to go.

Cover Reveal: Another Chance

Another Chance - Cover Reveal
Ariadne Wayne
Contemporary Romance

Cassie Warren’s world falls apart when Patrick, the first and only boy she’s ever loved cheats on her. It takes time to mend a broken heart but she meets and falls in love with Mark, promising to love him for the rest of her life.

When the unthinkable happens, Patrick is there to help her pick up the pieces. Can she forgive what happened all those years ago?


She had just started to drift off when her mobile phone buzzed on the cabinet beside the bed. Sighing, she picked it up to see if it was important.
Are you awake? Came the text from Patrick.
Cassie chewed her bottom lip. Should she reply or ignore it? What could he possibly want? She’d made her feelings clear to him, that she wasn’t prepared to make a decision. Fear gripped her stomach and a wave of nausea washed over her. What if Lauren had made her move after Cassie had left and Patrick was no longer waiting for her? 
She closed her eyes and swallowed hard, curiosity beating out nerves as she tapped her reply. 
I’m awake, what do you want?
  You came the response
She frowned, now he was going to play games with her emotions. All these years she’d never gotten over her first love. Mark had been the love of her life, she’d been sure of that but with Patrick around again suddenly she wasn’t sure.
Don’t play with me she sent back
If we played you’d never want to leave my bed came the reply
Cassie snorted, Patrick was gorgeous as he always had been and knew it. Now he seemed to be somehow convinced that bragging about his sexual prowess would impress her. Oh who was she kidding? Of course it did.
She’d only ever slept with two men in her life. Patrick and their fumbled first and only coupling, neither of them experienced enough to know any better. Mark had more knowledge in that area and made her purr with the pleasurable sensations he’d provided. He’d known exactly how to touch her, something she struggled with herself.
The thought of Patrick wanting her made her tingle. Everything about him said sexy and she was sure he could make her scream now. It scared her to think that way.

Find Romantic Tales: Bedtime Stories:


Tigris Eden:

There is really not much to say... I love to write, read, and listen to music. My attempt at a music career sadly ended at the Apollo one warm night in May! LOL (Side note: I was not booed just outdone by two munchkins rapping to Biggy Smalls but they were good!)

Military brat extraordinaire; have traveled to a lot of interesting places. 

The very first time I put pen to paper in story fashion, was in 6th grade. It was called The Case of the Missing Pepperoni. 

It was a cute mystery where all the ingredients and shop appliances came to life when the store owner closed up for the evening.

Ty Langston:

As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so
much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them."
So she did.
From that day forward, she never left home without her pen, a notebook, and some kind of
music playing in the background. Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction,
and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica.
She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie
Collins. But some of Ty's favorite writers are from the world of TV and film: namely, Tudors
creator Michael Hirst, and the late John Hughes.
Ty has a certificate in Broadcast Journalism along with a degree in Business Administration.
She is single and enjoys spending time with friends and family.

Dovey Mayali Cralk:
Dovey Mayali Cralk has been using writing as an outlet for her strange imagination since a youngster.  Unable to settle on any one genre, she is working on projects in several different veins.  Dovey, her husband, children, and pets call Texas home.
