PRINCESS OF BRETAGNE - Curse of the Lost Isle Book One - New Medieval series by Vijaya Schartz

Princess of Bretagne is the first book of a new medieval series titled THE CURSE OF THE LOST ISLE. Don't you love that first cover?

From history shrouded in myths, emerges a family of immortal Celtic Ladies, who roam the medieval world in search of salvation from a curse. For centuries, imbued with hereditary gifts, they hide their deadly secret, stirring passions in their wake as they fight the Viking hordes, send the first knights to the Holy Land, give birth to kings and emperors... but if the Church ever suspects what they really are, they will be hunted, tortured, and burned at the stake. PRINCESS OF BRETAGNE:806 AD - Alba (Ancient Scotland) -
As the Vikings raid the coast of Alba, Pressine of Bretagne sets out to seduce King Elinas of Dumfries, chosen by the Goddess to unite the tribes against the foreign invader. Elinas, still mourning his departed queen, has no intention to remarry. Head-strong and independent, Pressine does not expect to fall for the very attractive, wise and noble ruler... Furthermore, her Pagan nature clashes with the religious fanaticism of the king’s Christian heir, who suspects her unholy ancestry and will stop at nothing to get rid of her.

This saga is based on authentic French legends and involves magic but also gritty realistic historical descriptions as well as strong romantic elements. Battle scenes, love scenes, Vikings and Scotland... I researched for many years before writing this series. The second book is scheduled for release in mid April. Others will follow soon after that.

Hope you enjoy the read. It's only $2.99 on Amazon, so go for it HERE
