Indie Super-Star (and all around awesome person) Susan Kaye Quinn writes some of my favorite sci-fi books ever. So when I heard she was coming out with a steampunk fantasy romance, I may have done a little dance in my writing chair.
THIRD DAUGHTER is out today and I’ve already rushed over to get my copy. Take a look at the blurb below – sounds fantastic, right? And I LOVE the cover! Yay for diversity – an east-indian alternate world? Sign me up!!! I can’t wait to dive into this one!
Third Daughter (Dharian Affairs #1) The Third Daughter of the Queen wants to her birthday to arrive so she’ll be free to marry for love, but rumors of a new flying weapon may force her to accept a barbarian prince’s proposal for a peace-brokering marriage. Desperate to marry the charming courtesan she loves, Aniri agrees to the prince’s proposal as a subterfuge in order to spy on him, find the weapon, and hopefully avoid both war and an arranged marriage to a man she does not love.
Third Daughter is the first book in the Dharian Affairs Trilogy (Third Daughter, Second Daughter, First Daughter). This steampunk-goes-to-Bollywood (Bollypunk!) romance takes place in an east-indian-flavored alternate world filled with skyships, saber duels, and lots of royal intrigue. And, of course, kissing.
If it sounds like something you’d like to check out, you can add it to Goodreads.
