Before she was Queen . . .
Before their son was forced to choose his bride from among twenty-five strangers . . .
There was another royal romance.
Prince Devron was never meant to be king. He was given the opportunity to choose his bride . . . for love instead of political advantage.
Shiara – the lonely, orphaned weaver – never expected to meet Prince Devron, much less have him propose marriage.
Could this be her very own fairy tale ending?”
She finished her first speculative fiction novel purely for the enjoyment of her mother – also known as her biggest fan.
She gives God all of the glory for her talent and ability!
The Order of the MoonStone series falls under the general genre of YA Inspirational Speculative fiction, but if you want to get technical about it, the books fit into dystopian, romance, futuristic fantasy and steampunk (though I’m not a fan of the work “punk”).
Fantasy/Sci-fi/Speculative has always been my favorite genre to read AND write. I am drawn to the infinite possibilities that come with speculative fiction. There is nowhere you can’t go… nothing you can’t do in the fantastical worlds and adventures that await you there.
2. Do you write full-time or part time? How many days a week do you write?
I write full-time – often seven days a week. If I take off more than one day at a time, it interrupts my flow, making it difficult for me to get back into the story the next day.
3. Do you ever get writer’s block?
Every author, whether they call it writer’s block or not, has parts of their story that may hang them up. I hit brick walls in my stories all the time, but I don’t let it block me. I simply move to another part of the story until I find my way past the section that is giving me difficulty. Often, I find that the reason it was giving me trouble, was because it didn’t need to be there to begin with.
4. What book are you currently reading?
“Storm Siren” by Mary Weber
5. What tips would you give a potential writer?
WRITE! Pray! Read! NEVER stop!
When I found out that Ms. Morrows wrote a story about how the King and Queen first met, I was ecstatic. We know from the books how much the Queen loved him. We know her similarities between her and Kayden. But reading A Dangerous Love is merely the tip of the iceberg.
Y’all this short story of how the two met was absolutely heart melting. I LOVED watching their story unfold. How could Shiara handle her attraction to Devron, who is actually the Prince? Could she handle the demands and responsibility that comes with being a sovereign figurehead?
I know we (girls) like to think that marrying a Prince would be the best thing since slice bread, but really, who wants that drama? Yet, some people are made for the role, whether by birth right or by integrity. Shiara is a heroine we can all identify with and cheer for.
And Prince Devron. I could see his boyish grin and the grace in which he would treat people. I loved that he wanted to follow his heart. It made the dance between the two all the more better.
This book was full of romance and mystery. A great time to escape your everyday life and step into another. The only problem was it was too short. I could have cheerfully continued reading their story all the way to present day. Hopefully, Ms. Morrows will take pity on me and continue the King and Queen’s story.
* I give this 5 out of 5 stars!
