A little bit about The Challenge:
The gauntlet is thrown. One
must die. Refusal is not an option.

Arthur the High King of Breatein has fallen
captive of a longtime enemy, the Saxon warrior-princess Camilla, who lusts to
avenge the death of her betrothed at Gyan’s hands and will stop at nothing,
even the black arts, to achieve her goal. Because Gyan and Arthur have grown
estranged, she fears that Arthur may side with Camilla and make her his new
queen.

To meet Camilla’s challenge, Gyan must face all
her demons—public as well as private.


Excerpt from The Challenge:
The guard drew a long breath. “Your Majesty, it
is time.”

Time to face all my demons, private as well as
public.

At her nod, he returned to his post outside—a
mite reluctantly, she observed.

“Any last advice?” she asked Merlin at the
tent’s entrance. She barked a mirthless laugh. “How does one fight a demon?”

“You must not forget your shield.”

She felt her eyebrows rise. “You know I am no
novice warrior.”

“I am not talking of wood and metal, Your
Majesty.”


A bit about the author:

Kim Headlee
lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, Great
Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go,
but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins—the latter having been occupied
as recently as the mid-twentieth century—seem to be sticking around for a while
yet.

Kim is a
Seattle native and a direct descendent of twentieth-century Russian nobility.
Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia,
and the romantic yet tragic story of how Babushka escaped Communist Russia with
the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim’s
novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband’s ancestor, the
seventh-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.

For the time
being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book
Arthurian series, The Dragon’s Dove Chronicles, and other novels clamoring for
attention. She has been a published novelist since 1999, beginning with the
original editions of Dawnflight (Sonnet Books, Simon & Schuster) and
Liberty (writing as Kimberly Iverson, HQN Books, Harlequin).

This book will be offered FREE on Kindle Oct 27-28.
