Capture is the first book in my fantasy trilogy, and will be released on Jan 24th through Dreamspinner Press. Paul Richmond produced the cover for it, and I have to say I absolutely love it. He did a fantastic job creating this from my vague comments and ideas, and I feel incredibly lucky. It’s been a tough 3 months getting this book ready for release, and I’m both relieved and excited that it’s almost here.
Capture – Torsere: Book One
Over two hundred years ago, when dragons were hunted for their blood, the King of Torsere offered them sanctuary. In return, the dragons bestowed a magical gift on the King’s people, allowing those born with the mark to become dragon riders and forge a mental connection between dragon and rider.
King Ryneq of Torsere is undeniably attracted to Nykin, a young dragon rider. Ryneq’s sister, Cerylea, encourages him to pursue the relationship. But with the stresses of ruling Torsere, a romantic attachment is low on Ryneq’s list of priorities. Nykin admires the king from afar, but wants more than to warm his bed for a night or two.
Torsere remains under threat from the lowland armies of Rodeth and Athisi. To protect their kingdom, Ryneq and Cerylea intend to form an alliance with the elves through Cerylea’s marriage to elf prince Morkryn. On the road to the wedding, the lowland army attacks the party. Cerylea escapes, but Ryneq is captured and taken to the impenetrable Risvery Castle. In the aftermath, Nykin volunteers for a perilous mission, endangering the lives of him and his dragon. The odds are against him, but Nykin will risk everything for his duty and his king.
Available to pre-order through Dreamspinner Press.
Annabelle, gorgeous cover for CAPTURE! The book sounds great–I do love a juicy m/m with kings, boys, and dragons. 🙂 But tell me more–is this series a saga between Ryneq and Nykin with a great love/romance between them? Or is there romance at all? Or does each book in the series feature a different m/m pairing? Either way, I’m hoping for sweeping romance… Thanks so much!
I love the cover too, Paul did a fantastic job with it. To answer your questions, yes there is definitely romance alongside the action and the pairing is the same for the whole series. The first book has the start of their relationship, and it’s developed further in books 2 & 3. Wrapped around their romance is plot and action and lots of secondary characters/romances 🙂
Sounds awesome! I can’t wait to dive in! Best wishes for your series. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
