The Scholar's Heart

Chronicles of Tournai

A Tale of Tournai

Youngest son of a royal duke, Etan is a scholar at heart who juggles his work for the prince with his studies of the history and legends of Tournai, something of particular interest to him because he shares the magical Talent that runs in the royal bloodline. Etan’s peaceful world turns upside down when his best friend—the man he secretly loves—unexpectedly marries a woman. Though Tristan values his friendship with Etan and has always been attracted to him, he is a dutiful son, raised to shoulder responsibility for the family business one day. That day comes far sooner than anticipated, and he makes a deathbed promise to his father to marry the woman his father chose and become head of the company and family.

A year later, Tristan is a widower with an infant daughter and a mother who demands he marry again quickly—something Tristan resists. Circumstances throw Etan and Tristan together, and even as they succumb to the desires they’ve always harbored, Etan battles his feelings, wary of being cast aside again. When Tristan’s daughter is kidnapped, Etan and Tristan must come together to find her, find the person responsible, and support each other through the ordeal… and maybe beyond.

The Bitter Moon Saga is the epic tale of Torrant Shadow—Triane’s Son—and his goddess gift; his lovers, family, and friends; and their struggle against the forces of evil.

In Book 2, The evil from Torrant's homeland becomes too much to be ignored while he’s in school, and he must choose: will he be a healer or a hero?

And in Book 4, Torrant must use his healer/poet and predator sides to save his people.

But success could exact a devastating cost, one Triane’s Son was never prepared to pay.

Brutus führt ein einsames Leben in einer Welt, in der Magie nichts Ungewöhnliches ist. Er ist über zwei Meter groß, hässlich, und stammt aus einer Familie von schlechtem Ruf. Niemand, er selbst eingeschlossen, hält ihn für gut genug, mehr als nur Knochenarbeit zu verrichten. Aber Heldentum kommt in allen Formen und Größen. Als er bei der Rettung eines Prinzen schwer verletzt wird, ändert sich sein Leben schlagartig. Er wird in den Palast von Tellomer gerufen, um als Wärter für einen Gefangenen zu dienen. Das hört sich recht einfach an, stellt sich aber als die größte Bewährungsprobe seines bisherigen Lebens heraus.
