The Lodestar of Ys

ys-4A Goodreads M/M Romance Group Love Has No Boundaries Story

25th August 2013

Sjurd is convinced that Celyn of Ys is the most irritating man alive. It’s a good thing that Celyn is engaged to Sjurd’s brother, not him, because Sjurd loathes the brat, and it’s quite mutual. When an elopement and the threat of invasion force the two princes together, however, they have no choice but to marry and fake true love to keep their countries safe. Can warrior Sjurd and diplomat Celyn find any common ground?

First paragraph:

The first time Celyn met the oaf was aboard the flying ship Llinos, on the eve of their betrothal feast.

Not, of course, that they were supposed to be marrying each other. Celyn was sister’s son to King Pryderi of Ys, which meant his main value to the crown was as a minor marriage pawn. He certainly didn’t have anywhere near enough status of his own to merit an engagement to the newly selected First Prince of Axholme, who had been named heir elect by the acclaim of his gathered bloodline; was military leader of already legendary status; and was (Celyn was soon to learn) an all round arrogant prat.

    I just finish reading ‘The Lodestar of Ys’ and I loved it. I couldn’t put it down it took me a day to finish it. Could you tell of there is a book two? I hope there is.

    Kind regards,

      Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was such fun to write. There is a prequel, Emyr’s Smile, but no follow up, I’m afraid. Fantasy wise, I’m really focussing on my dragon books, the Reawakening series, at the moment.
