Synopsis

A war between the gods looms. For eight generations, one family has secretly worked on a project that will lead the true gods of the Frinnaie to return to the planet. But it will take decades to finish and more gold than Sanders Maksiner Persungen, Lord of Grosmar and oldest son of the Duke of Nerkess, can come up with. Desperate to complete his mission, Sanders marries a Vardian princess. With the funds he needs secured, he leaves his wife at their wedding feast. Duty first. The words are etched in the steel of his blade, and all but tattooed on him.

Princess Calanthe Sinnia Traenu of Varda, abandoned by her husband, ignores the sneers and taunts of her people and struggles to understand the bizarre clauses in her marriage contract, which her father refuses to explain. Why would he marry her to an Altian nobleman whose family was not close to the Vardian throne? Calanthe spends her first year of marriage alone, thinking, reading, investigating. There is only one reason her father would approve such a marriage: somehow, it saved Varda.

Determined to find out more, Calanthe journeys to the frayed edges of civilization to defend her kingdom. There, she finds her husband, a man she barely knows, besieged by problems. He must bribe a nosy tax collector to keep a foreign army at bay, defend the camp from raiders, and keep the general of the guard and the master builder from killing one another. And now, he must ensure that his bride doesn’t discover his secret.

Sales arguments

  • According to the Book Ad Report, romance and erotica booked earned $1.4 billion in 2019.
  • According to the Book Ad Report, Sci-fi/Fantasy books sold for $590.2 million in 2019.
  • I aim for 50% fantasy plot and 50% romance plot to appeal to both audiences.

Similar titles

  • Star of the Morning, Lynn Kurland, Berkley Trade, 2006. My book has more heat between the romantic leads and a fuller world.
  • The Renegade’s Heart, Claire De La Croix, self-published, 2014. My characters have stronger internals and there is more humour in it.
  • Socerer to the Crown, Zen Cho, Ace, 2015. My book occurs in a second-world, my characters have more heat between them and the fantasy plot is more involved.

Audience

My book fullfills the need for a second world fantasy with a strong romance that has high heat.

Cranthorpe Millner logo Cranthorpe Millner

250 copies • Partial manuscript.
Cranthorpe Millner operates a hybrid publishing model. This means, should an author pass our editors’ strict filtering system, we can offer different kinds of agreements depending on the author and the manuscript. With some authors, we work under a ‘traditional’ model, whereby we cover the full cost of publication and the author is offered industry-standard royalties (8-10%). To some authors, we offer what we call a partnership or contributory agreement, whereby the author is asked for a financial contribution so that we may share the risk and enter into a partnership together to publish the author’s book. In this case, the author receives around 60-75% royalties.

You would provide us with the print-ready digital files (one for the cover and one for the interior) and we print the books as they are sold through our distribution partner’s websites.
