The Forgotten Kingdom, an epic romantic fantasy novella series
The Forgotten Kingdom, book 1
With her dying breath, Morgan’s mother cast a desperate spell to save her son from Duke Arnost, successfully wiping Morgan’s and his kingdom’s existence from the world’s collective memory. Morgan has been paying the price ever since, as he struggles to free his people from an obscurity he has begun to despair of ever escaping.
Princess Caya has spent the past ten years living in isolation. Cut off from her father and her throne, she has watched her realm fall deeply under Arnost’s sway. When her father dies, she faces the impossible task of returning to a court in which she has no allies and somehow finding a way to prove Arnost is a danger to the kingdom.
Before she can return, Morgan abducts her and takes her to his forgotten lands in the hopes of persuading her to help him bring Arnost to justice. Yet how can he hope to convince someone who has no memory of him, nor of the friendship they once shared?
But Caya does remember him—though that doesn’t mean she trusts him. An alliance may be just what she needs to expose Arnost and save both their kingdoms, but how can she trust that Morgan doesn’t intend to use her for his own ends?
An Uncertain Alliance, book 2
Caya and Morgan are running out of time to save their kingdoms from Arnost. Lacking the numbers necessary to face him head-on, they launch a two-pronged assault: a sabotage mission to disrupt his supply lines, and a whisper campaign designed to provoke unrest.
As determined as Caya is to stop him, when faced with the reality of having to fight against her own people, she finds her resolve wavering. But witnessing the devastation her army has wrought proves her people aren’t blameless, and grappling with how to punish those guilty of atrocities while also protecting the innocent is almost more than she can bear.
Morgan wonders if bringing her on the mission was a mistake. Uncertain of whether he can trust her to do what must be done, he is forced to reckon with the fact that however much he has come to identify with her, he cannot let her stand in the way of his efforts to protect his own people.
