First of a Series: The Surrogate Bride. This is a new direction for me and I hope my readers will give it a go. It is a fantasy, sort of medieval and sort of romantic.
After years of abuse at the hands of her husband, Natasha finds herself running for her life after yet another spell in hospital. She is certain that this time he will kill her and when her flight takes her to some Romany caravans beside a deserted car park, she runs to them for help.
That is when she meets a young girl who heals her wounds with a touch and finds herself in another world.
Her rescuers are the telepathic Lord Christos and his sweetheart, Kendall, who resembles Natasha. Their immortal King, Wolfstan, has commanded that Kendall marry him and Christos has brought Natasha to his world in the hope that she will agree to take Kendall’s place.
But marriage in this world is not the same thing at all; it is a magic and physical joining of minds and souls and one which can never be undone. And joining with a woman from Natasha’s world has an unexpected and devastating effect on the King. Soon Natasha finds herself not only joined for life to Wolfstan, but a weapon to be used by his enemies.
