Huge thanks for Warlord’s Destiny!
Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

My “Brand New Look” contest continues through tomorrow! Be sure to check the rules and the prize list in yesterday’s post!

A little birdie at Ellora’s Cave told me that Warlord’s Destiny is the best-selling reissue so far, she thinks. That’s good enough for me! They’ve been breaking apart older anthologies and reissuing the novellas individually. Nice for the author because we’re seeing an older title gain a new life.

WD was originally published in 2005 as one of three stories in the anthology Fated Mates, which was nominated for Best Paranormal Erotic Novel of 2005 by RT BookReview Magazine.

Thanks so much for your support. Without it, I’d have to have a day job and would no doubt be writing fewer books!

This is what the story is about:

Promised in marriage for a decade, Mora has no illusions she is anything other than the sacrificial lamb to ensure peace between her peace-loving planet and the warlike world that demands her union with one of their own. No great beauty, she resigns herself to a loveless marriage with a man who will only do his duty by her. However, when she meets the rugged warlord who will be her husband, Mora feels an immediate stirring of lust. She decides in that moment to win his heart—she’ll settle for nothing less!

Lord Tetrik finds his bride more than the scrawny handful he had expected. She has hips to breed him strong, sturdy sons, and intelligence that is a gift worth more than a pretty face. When he suspects his wife harbors tender feelings for him, he wonders if he can be the husband she desires. After all, love for a woman is a frivolous thing—and not a Warlord’s Destiny.

    Congratulations on the success of the reissue of WARLORD’S DESTINY. I agree with you that reissues are great, especially since they allow for easier access to your older works by those of us who have only recently discovered you. Sometimes those older books are a bit hard to find.

    This one is on my wish list at EC. I definitely want it.

    I love the reissues and that they are splitting up some of the old anthologies. It’s great I can get the single story in the anthology by an author I enjoy.

    I’m glad that they reissued this book so that I can get it now. The excerpt left me wanting to read more. From what I read this is going to be a really good book.

    I think reissued books are fun sometimes because sometimes you’ve never heard of a book then the reissue comes out and you get to enjoy it. Or for the people who have read it, they can reread it again πŸ˜€

    I really like how they are splitting up the anthologies. That way I can afford to buy one of the novellas when I can’t afford the whole book!
