No Man Can Tame

by Miranda Honfleur

Published 26 December 2018

A human princess. A dark-elf prince. A kiss of fire and powder.

After a failed courtship in an ally kingdom, twenty-one-year-old Princess Alessandra returns home to a land torn apart by mutual hatred between the humans and the dark-elves. The "Beast Princess," as Aless is known by courtiers, confidently sets her mind to ways of making peace, but her father has already decided for her: she is to marry one of the mysterious and monstrous dark-elves to forge a treaty, and go on a Royal Progress across the kingdom to flaunt their harmonious union. While she intends to preserve the peace, the Beast Princess has plans of her own.

Prince Veron has been raised knowing his life is not his own, but to be bargained away by his mother, the queen of Nozva Rozkveta, to strengthen the dark-elf queendom. When his mother tells him he is to marry a self-absorbed, vile human, he is determined to do his duty regardless of his personal feelings. After arriving at the human capital, he finds the "Beast Princess" rebellious and untamed--and not to be trusted.

Aless and Veron face opposition at every turn, with humans and dark-elves alike opposing the union violently, as well as their own feelings of dissonance toward each other. Can two people from cultures that despise one another fall in love? Can a marriage between them bond two opposing worlds together, or will it tear them apart for good?

If you like the fantasy and politics of Danielle L. Jensen's Malediction Trilogy and the romance of Elizabeth Vaughan's Chronicles of the Warlands, NO MAN CAN TAME will lure you into its world and not let you go.

Pick up No Man Can Tame today, and journey into a medieval world of magic and Immortals, masquerades and games, love and blood, and a tale as old as time...

Note: No Man Can Tame was previously published in the boxed set Of Beasts and Beauties. This is a revised second edition. Unlike many fantasy books, the Dark-Elves of Nightbloom series is NOT a "clean" read. If you enjoy your books free of love scenes and adult situations, this series isn't for you.

Bright of the Moon

by Miranda Honfleur

Published 28 January 2021

Wrath consumes him as the dark does the night… Until she rises. But can she chase away his darkness?

Most would say the “sweet” and “quiet” Signorina Arabella Belmonte has lived a quiet life as a young noblewoman in her family’s castello. But little do they know she pens treatises criticizing the realm’s warmongers… and now there’s a price on her head. As she struggles to hide her seditious activities, a chance encounter with a unicorn leaves her with four hooves and a horn of her own—and a form she can’t control. The dark-elf queen has offered her a chance to acquire that control… if Bella can find the unicorn who turned her.

Prince Dhuro of Nightbloom has never met a problem he couldn’t solve with his fists—that is, until he fought his sister for a place in the army’s elite forces and lost. When the light-elves defeated them and his father was executed, Dhuro’s inner demons laid claim to the whole of him. Now Immortal beasts are growing in power and threatening his people.

Dhuro has a chance to help his people win, but his mother, the queen, sends him on a fool’s errand instead—helping a human newly turned unicorn find her sire, and asking the impossible: whether the Elder of the pacifistic unicorns will stand with them against the beasts ravaging his people. Making things worse, Bella challenges his every decision, argues with him, infuriates him… until beneath the full moon, she shifts to her human form... and enchants him.

A war is raging, Dhuro must marry for political advantage, and only Bella’s sire can help her... And when the bounty hunters hunting her find them, Dhuro and Bella’s worldviews collide like life and death. But can he be the answer to helping her control her form, and can she chase away his darkness? Can they find a way to be together and fight the war threatening to devour the land… or will it swallow them too?

Readers are saying if you like the fantasy and romance of Grace Draven’s Wraith Kings and a snarky Swan Princess tale with unicorns, BRIGHT OF THE MOON will lure you into its world and not let you go.

Buy BRIGHT OF THE MOON today to journey into a medieval world of magic and Immortals, trials and trysts, blood and passion, and a love lasting far longer than forever…

Book 3

An Ember in the Dark

by Miranda Honfleur

Published 28 January 2022

The war cut him in two. Only she can stitch his torn soul, if he’ll let her in...

Born to a family of poor tailors, Lucia Perona has two talents: sewing and looking nearly identical to Princess Bianca of Silen. When a dark-elf warband begins to tear the kingdom apart, the princess and several highborn ladies are to be sent to a monastery for their safety. But to protect the princess, Lucia is sent in her stead. If only the dark-elf warlord leading the enemy didn’t see the value of trading hostages for territory… and cared to respect the holiness of a monastery.

Dakkar grew up the son of a queen’s guard, raised to honor strength, the ways of the Deep and Darkness, and the power of his queen. A human once stole his immortal life, yet the queendoms forms a peace with an entire kingdom of selfish and untrustworthy humans, transgressions seemingly forgiven. Appalled, Dakkar leaves everything he knows to avenge victims like him and lead a warband of like-minded dark-elves to reclaim their dignity. After a few successful raids on human territories, he learns of a way to acquire more, bloodlessly: acquiring valuable hostages to ransom. If only the most valuable of these hostages wasn’t so troublesome. If only she didn’t disprove his assumptions about humans at every turn...

As the humans and the queendoms negotiate for the women’s freedom, Lucia continually chafes against her bonds and attempts to free herself and her friends, so much so that Dakkar shackles her to him. Forced to endure his presence, she seeks to demonstrate her people’s strength at every opportunity--and find a way to end her captor. Only… when the time comes, she thwarts an attempt on his life. Hated by her fellow captives and looked upon with suspicion by Dakkar, she becomes responsible for their continued imprisonment...and devising a way to end it, without the aid she spurned.

The might of the allied queendoms and a human king threaten to rip the warband--as well as Dakkar and Lucia--apart, and if she can’t repair the damage she caused, she’ll lose everything she never knew she wanted, and he’ll lose the half of his soul he never knew he needed. Can Lucia help a warlord see hope in the darkness, or will they lose each other… and the people they’ve hopelessly trapped along with them?

If you like the fantasy and romance of Elizabeth Vaughan’s Warprize and a marriage of The Prince & the Pauper and Beauty & the Beast, AN EMBER IN THE DARK will grab you and not let go.

Journey into a medieval world of magic and Immortals, princesses and paupers, blood and passion, and enemies who could become lovers…

Crown to Ashes

by Miranda Honfleur

Published 12 October 2021

Together, they could take on the world… if only she’d trust him...

Ever since her husband left her for the enemy, Zara has ruled alone, caring for their children and their people with an iron will and an unyielding strength. Rumor had it that he sacrificed himself to end the war with the light-elves and its ruthless sadist of a queen, but when word arrives that he’s alive--and returning home--Zara knows there’s no way he could’ve survived except by the will of the sadist queen. Which makes him a traitor.

Freed from a thousand-year sleep and a prison, Mir returns to his home... and to his wife and queen, Zara, whose welcome--if it can be called such--is icy. After his choice to sacrifice himself to end the war with the light-elves, he’d expected a reprimand, but he comes to learn that not only did everyone believe him dead, but because he’s alive, his people look on him with suspicion--including his estranged wife.

While alliances are forged and fractured during the Immortal Wars, Zara must consider marrying a second consort to strengthen her queendom, and her suspicion at Mir’s survival keeps her calculations cold. Multiple suitors arrive to vie for Zara’s hand, and yet... she finds herself drawn to Mir and untangling the web of hurt and betrayal that happened so many years prior. But when the enemy queen who held Mir captive returns--and renews their conflict--their bond is tested anew.

As an old enemy grasps for control and beasts charge the gates, Zara and Mir must choose whether to trust each other to defeat them and reforge the bond between them. Can their love be rekindled, or will suspicion, doubt, and war spread its ashes to the winds?

If you like the fantasy and romance of C.L. Wilson’s Tairen Soul series and a twist on the Cinderella tale, CROWN TO ASHES will make you believe in love’s second chances.

Journey into a medieval world of magic and Immortals, trials and trysts, blood and passion, and a love to light the darkness of midnight…
