Love is destined to find her…
Dainy doesn’t know that she is the lost Duchess of Jordinia, believed to have been assassinated fifteen years ago. Nor does she know that her uncle has implemented an illegal contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward!
Though at odds, three clashing rivals – including a noble giant, a forest dweller and a thieving rake – voyage together by woodland, prairie and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding the assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, young Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic quadrangle as each suitor competes to capture her heart.
Charmingly romantic and bursting with political intrigue, startling twists and vivid characters, readers of romance and fantasy alike will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.
The Duchess Quest is my first book by this author, but I guarantee it won't be the last. This book was a pleasure to read - one of my favorite books of the year, and that's saying something.
The story offers originality and creativity, and an unique setting. Three rivals travel together to find the lost Duchess of Jordinia, Dainy. Dainy has no idea about her heritage though, or about the contest her uncle has set up to try persuade others to help him find her. With a good dose of political intrigue, humor and romantic undertones, this is an adventurous, vivid story that will appeal to a variety of readers - fantasy fans and romance fans alike.
It's hard to describe how good this novel really is, so I suggest you go give it a try yourself.
