Summer Snippet: Christy Parker

Six Sentences:

His hair was tied back and, while he no longer wore the traveling clothes of the previous days, his outfit was still completely black. His knee-length pants, hose, doublet and cape were all black. Only a glimpse of white shirt could be seen under the layers of dark clothing.

He looked like evil incarnate.

“You look well this morning, Princess Alexia.”

But could evil incarnate cause her stomach to flip-flop by simply saying her name?


Lexy Newberry knows she’s adopted, but someone forgot to mention her birth parents are sixteenth-century monarchs who sent her to the future to escape certain slaughter. Now Lexy is back in the past, charged with reclaiming her homeland. She’s not the normal storybook princess, but Lord Lukas Reynard, the nobleman enlisted to help her, isn’t a charming prince either. 
As her feelings for Lukas grow, she becomes torn between the place she knows in the future and the place she was born to rule in the past. If she leaves the sixteenth century, she may lose a love she only dreamed of.  If she stays, she may lose her life. For Lukas has a secret so shocking, it could topple the hopes of Dresdonia and shatter her heart.
