I am currently
seeking representation for my novel Conquered. Conquered is a 78,000
word romance, set within a fictional civilization that mirrors the
ancient times of Rome and Persia.
Amarah is haunted by loss, as
her village was destroyed by the tyrant King Xavier. Just as she forces
away images of war Xavier emerges once again. The king becomes
captivated by her innocent beauty and steals her away. During the voyage
to Xavier’s land of Etheridge Amarah develops feelings for Kaiden.
Kaiden is a lower rank Etheridgian soldier who becomes challenged by his
love for Amarah and his duty to his king. When Amarah arrives to the
palace she is thrown into Xavier’s world of women, where ultimately she
must yield to him. Through her submission Amarah learns she is more than
a concubine to the king. She is not flattered by his adoration and when
Kaiden returns to her life, Amarah will do anything to be with him. She
will risk her life, and even con the king with seduction and promises
of devotion. As Amarah’s plot unravels she finds Xavier is not as
blinded by his affections for her as she assumed. Amarah must decide
what is important, the love she possesses for Kaiden, or her safety as
her plans of deceit is uncovered.
