Her throne stolen.
The nation of Trylia believes that the gift, a force that can alter the world through the intent of the person who wields it, is a myth. The stuff of children’s tales, brought to life only in the imagination.
For Lila, separated from a life she was too young to remember, it’s a confusing power that has set her apart from the family she found. And she is only just beginning to understand it when her home and family are destroyed, and she is captured.
To escape, she unleashes the gift in a destructive wave that also forces a man she doesn’t trust to keep them alive. Bryn won’t survive unless Lila does, and they must flee the wrath of the captors still pursuing her. If they can’t find a way to work together, Lila won’t live long enough to learn more about the gift.
As Lila finds her strength, the gift inside her grows. Unless she can control it, she may be a greater danger than the one at her heels.
Her throne stolen.
Her life and kingdom in peril.
Everything she had ever known and loved… gone overnight.

Her only way out is to gain refuge with a band of misfit pirates as they set sail on a distant adventure, seeking a legendary treasure. On the long journey that awaits her, the young princess learns more about who she is and where she came from, forges unbreakable friendships, and finds her first lover. But will she succeed in this daring quest? Will she lose her throne forever… or worse yet, be forced to marry the very tyrant that took it all from her?
“You try to comfort yourself with visions of events that didn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean that what did happen left no scars.”
After losing hearth and home, Meya attempts to escape the traumatic memories by travelling east. In 13th century Tristanja, however, it’s not safe to be alone.
A local slave trader catches wind of the kinless woman and abducts her in the dead of night. Beaten and abused, the now meek Meya is sold to Lord Deminas. He’s known to be cruel, yet becomes strangely protective of his new chambermaid, punishing anyone who dares hurt her. After cutting her to drink her blood, he even uses his own to heal her wounds.
Meya and her paramour wonder if Deminas’ dark secret is why servants regularly vanish, including the lord’s previous chambermaids. However, the two women quickly learn that Lord Deminas isn’t the only danger lurking in the castle’s shadows.
MY LORD is a queer, slow-burn erotic gothic horror novel about rediscovering yourself after trauma—with kinky, blood-drinking immortals and polyamory.
Carnivals, Cannibals, and Clowns. Oh My!
