- All nobles must marry before they turn 30 or will be banished from their home and unable to see their family.
This law I created originally for the 3 Royal Princes who are dealing with a communist upheaval and then how their family took back the throne had a natural end where all 3 brothers found wives. When I started the series it was about these three and these three only.
But then that law from above really hit home for me. All nobles in the kingdom must marry and are on a time limit. Plus I never revealed the matchmaker who created the internet program all three princes used to find their true loves.
And honestly Cassidy Bright, the matchmaker was one of my favorite characters I’ve ever written. She’s funny. She’s intelligent (as her name suggests). And in many ways she’s like Emma in Jane Austen, though she has real world problems. Unlike so many of the Princes of Avce, Cassidy has a bratty younger sister, a mother who loves to shop and a father who has a gambling addiction and to top it off, it’s Cassidy paying the bills. However this doesn’t diminish her belief in true love and happy-ever-after.
And while I called Cassidy’s sister a brat, at least in Cassidy’s worldview, the truth is Chelsea’s just more jaded and worldly than her sister. Chelsea refuses to wear the blinders of her sister and pretend the world is hunky dory when it’s not and she doesn’t believe in true love. She believes she’s lived long enough with her sister footing the bill, and it’s time she does her duty and marries well. However it all crashes apart when her car is totaled on her way to Paris and she’s temporarily stuck on a vineyard with the sexiest man she’d ever meet. The trouble with Alex though is that he isn’t rich and that might destroy her destiny and her family’s need for money. Love is for other people if it even exists.
And I already have a few more nobles in mind for stories to come! With a law that says the nobles must marry before they turn 30, the question this country next to Italy becomes is who is worthy of being a royal of Avce? I can’t stop. This series is almost as addicting to me now as the House of Morgan. They are so different as the Morgans are one family, but rich, entitled, nobles who must marry also really gets me going and makes me want to write.
First 3 Books in the Princes of Avce Series. A little heat, a touch of intrigue and 3 hot, eligible princes are yours.
So because I couldn’t stop the series, the next three books are all on pre-order. Forbidden Duke comes out this month! So I’m so excited for you to meet Blackwell. He’s a duke but he grew up on a farm, technically in Colorado but on the border of Kansas. He misses the wide open spaces and simpleness of his life, before he returned to billions and his family’s life as a noble Duke. I hope you love him half as much as I do.
he story is like Under the Tuscan Sun goes to Cinderella’s Royal Ball.
Donna Smith has always dreamed of seeing how the other half lives. When she finds herself out of a job, she uses her downtime to finally get out and see the world, and her first destination is to witness a royal wedding in Avce.
With the first item checked off her bucket list, she sets out to check off the remaining items one by one…as soon as she can figure out how to sneak into the reception undetected and find a handsome stranger to lock lips with.
Blackwell Oberlin, the Duke of Oakley Woods, promised his father he’d one day marry, but on one condition: she has to be someone unlike anyone he’s ever met. When on a whim he plants a kiss on a beautiful stranger, he thinks he’s met the one, but before he knows what’s happened, she’s nowhere to be found and he can’t stop thinking about her.
Using his money and influence, he hires a security team and a girl with a sophisticated algorithm to find her. But when he does, will it lead to a happily-ever-after?
The Matchmaker gets Matched. This is a modern day Jane Austen’s Emma who uses her computer skills to help others find true love.
Cassidy Bright is infamous in Avce for her ability to help others find love. Her algorithm has never failed. Behind the scenes, though, know one knows who she based her program on, and she’d like to keep it that way. But when her muse requests her services, she’s not so inclined to oblige.
Remington Burke IV, the Earl of Sky, has everything he wants, except a wife. At the urging of his ailing grandmother, he seeks out help from the only person he knows can help him – Cassidy. Marriage is almost guaranteed, but she’s reluctant to let him see his match. The longer they squabble about it, the more attracted to her he becomes.
Could the woman of his dreams be the geeky girl with the magical algorithm or has desperation clouded his judgment?
Slightly pampered lady. One sexy French, vineyard owner.
An unexpected romance set in both wine country and Paris between two opposites with almost nothing in common except undeniable chemistry.
Lady Chelsea Bright is many things, but a romantic is not one of them.

Chelsea needs a ride to Paris but volunteers to stay and help repair the property and despite the trouble she’s caused, but these two opposites soon find themselves growing closer. Soon, that budding friendship begins to look and feel like love, but is it enough to make Chelsea abandon her plans and begin anew?
