Two Crowns, Two Islands, One Legacy. Discover the first four books in the Royal House of Karedes miniseries, plus a bonus story by Sandra Marton!

The islands of Adamas have been torn into two rival kingdoms: gorgeous Greek princes reign supreme over glamorous Aristo, while smoldering sheikhs rule the desert island of Calista. The Stefani coronation diamond was split as a symbol of their feud...but it's now missing! Whether by seduction, blackmail or marriage, the jewel must be found, for whoever reunites the diamonds will rule all.

The journey begins in these five stories: The Prince's Mistress by Sandra Marton, Billionaire Prince, Pregnant Mistress by Sandra Marton, The Playboy Sheikh's Virgin Stable-Girl by Sharon Kendrick, The Prince's Captive Wife by Marion Lennox, and The Sheikh's Forbidden Virgin by Kate Hewitt.

 

About Sandra Marton

See more books from this Author
Sandra Marton wrote her first novel while she was still in elementary school. Her doting parents told her she'd be a writer someday and Sandra believed them. In high school and college, she wrote dark poetry nobody but her boyfriend understood, though looking back, she suspects he was just being kind. As a wife and mother, she wrote murky short stories in what little spare time she could manage, but not even her boyfriend-turned-husband could pretend to understand those. Sandra tried her hand at other things, among them teaching and serving on the Board of Education in her hometown, but the dream of becoming a writer was always in her heart.At last, Sandra realized she wanted to write books about what all women hope to find: love with that one special man, love that's rich with fire and passion, love that lasts forever. She wrote a novel, her very first, and sold it to the Harlequin Presents line. Since then, she's written more than sixty books, all of them featuring the sexy, gorgeous, larger-than-life heroes that have helped make Sandra one of the Presents line's bestselling authors. A four-time RITA Award finalist, she's also received six Romantic Times magazine awards for Best Harlequin Presents of the Year and has been honored with Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for Series Romance. Sandra lives with her very own sexy, gorgeous, larger-than-life hero in a sun-filled house on a quiet country lane in the northeastern United States. Storytelling has always been a part of Charlene Sands's life. As a young girl, she remembers sitting with her father in the evenings asking him to tell her a story. His imagination and flare for the dramatic always entertained and had her coming back for more. Later she began reading his written word; journals and romantic poetry that he'd penned for the family, and those words inspired her to take the writing plunge.Charlene has always read romance--grand adventures where the hero and heroine traversed rugged ground, beating insurmountable odds to finally find the path to true love. Books filled her life, and her list of favorite authors kept growing. When she finally mustered the courage to face the computer head-on and write, she felt an immediate kinship to those talented authors. Since she fell in love and married her high school sweetheart, she is definitely a romance author who believes in happy endings and writes love stories that warm the heart.She began her writing journey in 1995 and sold her first novel in 1998, appropriately named Chance in a Million. To date, she has sold sixteen books and counting, writing both Silhouette Desire and Harlequin Historical novels. Presently, she heads the Ask an Author program for the Orange County Chapter of RWA where she is proudly an active member.

Marion was raised in a farming community in practically the only part of Australia that's wet all year round. With no entertainment but reading and no one to talk to but cows, it's no wonder she turned to writing. But they didn't put romance writer in the career handbook at her local school, so she pursued something she thought might make her a better living.Marion ended up teaching statistics and computing at her local university. She married, she had a couple of kids, she collected dogs, cats, chooks, goldfish--the full domestic catastrophe--but her first love was always romance. She penned her first novel while on family leave with her second child. Dare to Love Again was published in 1990 and stands as a testament to a family's ability to survive on spaghetti and toasted sandwiches.Marion's now written over 50 romance novels. She wrote under the pseudonym Trisha David to separate her Tender Romance novels from her Medical Romance books, so if you're looking for older books, try Trisha.She's given up teaching. She'd give up housework if only the animals would stop molting and the kids would learn to clean up (so...she's a dreamer). She daydreams in the garden and calls it gardening. She daydreams while traveling and calls it research.Mostly, she indulges in her first love--romance. Kate Hewitt discovered her first Mills & Boon romance on a trip to England when she was thirteen and she's continued to read them ever since.She wrote her first story at the age of five, simply because her older brother had written one and she thought she could do it, too. That story was one sentence long—fortunately, they've become a bit more detailed as she's grown older.Although she was raised in Pennsylvania, she spent summers and holidays at her family's cottage in rural Ontario, Canada; picking raspberries, making maple syrup and pretending to be a pioneer. Now her children are enjoying roaming the same wilderness!She studied drama in college and shortly after graduation moved to New York City to pursue a career in theatre. This was derailed by something far better—meeting the man of her dreams who happened also to be her older brother's childhood friend.Ten days after their wedding they moved to England, where Kate worked a variety of different jobs—drama teacher, editorial assistant, church youth worker, secretary and finally mother.When her oldest daughter was one year old, she sold her first short story to a British magazine, The People's Friend. Since then she has written many stories and serials as well as novels. She loves writing stories that celebrate the healing and redemptive power of love and there's no better way of doing it than through the romance genre!Besides writing, she enjoys reading, traveling and learning to knit—it's an ongoing process and she's made a lot of scarves.After living in England for six years, she now resides in Connecticut with her husband, an Anglican minister, her three young children and the possibility of one day getting a dog.Kate loves to hear from readers.
