The Almost Queen (Paperback)
The Witch Needs Her Freedom.
Ellara Wist, one of the many witches that fought on the losing side of the war, has no intentions of returning to Outerland when it is finished and she has no intention of letting her fellow witches suffer either. So, during her sentencing for war crimes against the kingdom of Aulen, she boldly offers their new king a proposal: she'll join the king's court as his own personal sorceress in exchange for the lives and freedom of those trapped in Outerland.
The King Needs a Wife.
Terran didn't want to be king. But after years of war and the loss of almost his entire family, he will not put the crown aside. But when a witch from his past offers herself as a sacrifice, he sees her as an equal. So, he instead counters her offer with one of his own: Don't be my sorceress. Be my Queen.
And the deal they strike will change their world forever.
Desperate, Ellara agrees, swearing to herself that she could never love him. But as time reveals the man she's married not as the monster everyone thought he was and danger draws them closer together, she finds her vow almost impossible to keep.
