Do you love romance, time travel, castles and handsome princes? I do. So I’m thrilled to feature AJ Nuest’s Golden Key Chronicles on “3 Reasons Why….” Since AJ’s cliff-hanger series has four installations, we’re bending the rules and hearing four reasons why you should read this exciting series. Take it away, AJ…
First, a blurb about the series…
Rowena’s Key Blurb: The key would unlock his future and the safety of his kingdom, but he never imagined the sorceress would unlock his heart… Antiques restorer, Rowena Lindstrom, finds herself the owner of an ancestral armoire containing a hidden key and a magic mirror leading to another realm. But the handsome warrior prince waiting on the other side is truly the final straw. This must be an elaborate joke, right? As she struggles to discover the truth, Rowena learns Prince Caedmon Austiere needs the key to save his kingdom. In the end, she cannot deny him anything. Including her heart.
4 Reasons Why You Should Read The Golden Key Chronicles:
#1 ~ Rowena’s Key, Book I This may just be me, but who wouldn’t want to be Rowena Lindstrom. She’s a successful business woman at the top of her game in the Chicago antiques world and, after her purchase of a beaten up old armoire, she finds a key hidden inside a secret compartment that is stamped with her initials! Add to this the appearance of magic mirror, the totally babealicious Caedmon Austiere—a half-blood gypsy prince from the 14th Century who believes she’s a goddess and is duty-bound to woo her—a mysterious prophecy and hilarious best friend, and Rowena is living every girls’ fairytale dream! For those of you still in love with the Disney princes of your youth, Rowena’s Key fits the bill!
#2 ~ Candra’s Freedom, Book II Ever wonder what it would be like to wield sharp knives or launch silver throwing stars with the accuracy of a lightning strike? How about training your very own falcon or taking down warriors twice your size by becoming an expert in Parkour? I have, and I got to live vicariously through Rowena as she does all these things and more in Candra’s Freedom. A sorceress by name and the very key to saving the Austiere Kingdom, she’s heralded as the first woman in history to earn her crest—a fight for freedom she’s not about to relinquish, even at the heated advances of the handsome Prince Caedmon. The all around GIRLS RULE kick butt-ery in Candra’s Freedom is a great reminder that women can be strong, determine and beautiful!
#3 ~ Caedmon’s Curse, Book III The plot thickens…as do the fantasy elements, the lore, the mystical creatures and the romance in Caedmon’s Curse. But don’t let that fool you. This book contains zero downtime—from the moment Caedmon and Rowena fight through their differences in the forest, to their time alone in the Cave of Tears, to their disguised infiltration of the enemy’s castle—and has been described as “Formula One fast with a very slick flow.” The scenes heat up and so do the deeds of the dastardly villains. Add the campfire story Caedmon tells Rowena, and this story is the perfect fantasy romance!
#4 ~ Braedric’s Bane, Book VI Old friends are reunited in the final installment of The Golden Key Chronicles and the truth behind Rowena’s place within Austiere prophecy is revealed. Yet the circumstances are much worse than she and Caedmon could have ever imagined. Enemies become friends, and the betrayal of those once believed as loyal family members come to a head on the battlefield. Epic fight scenes, the fulfillment of destiny and the desperate endeavor to trick a centuries-old wizard must all be faced. But the reason you should read this story is because of the steamy shower scene. LOL
The Golden Key Chronicles is written as a four-part fantasy romance series, with each installment ending in a cliffhanger. How do you feel about cliffhanger endings and do they affect your decision to purchase a book? AUTHOR BIO: I am a multi-published, award-winning author who lives in the middle of a cornfield in NW Indiana. My loving husband, two beautiful children and a bevy of spoiled pets have agreed to stay and, in exchange for three rations per day and laundry service, tolerate my lunacy. While I spend most days happily ensconced in crafting romance across a multitude of genres, an underground coup has been percolating. The dogs just informed me the cat is secretly vying for dictatorship.
