She’ll Reign Over His Heart…In This Time or Another
After decades of war, two hostile druid factions come close to a peace treaty that could save hundreds of lives. All they need is the hand of Princess Ashlynn to seal the deal, but the stubborn and powerful daughter of Clann Kavanagh’s High Priestess will have nothing of it.
Desperate to change her fate, Ashlynn ventures into the forbidden forest in search of an ancient spell. When the old magic goes awry, the princess finds herself thrown into the future and stranded in an unknown land.
With the help of a handsome and powerful Romani sorcerer, Ashlynn searches for answers and a way home even though every moment spent at Cian's side makes Ashlynn less certain of her desires.
Now she must decide if the past is worth changing or if their future is worth fighting for.

“No, you will listen!” Ashlynn demanded, squeezing her fists so hard fresh blood dripped from the crescent cuts in her palms. The pain acted like an anchor, forcing her to focus, reminding her that rulers didn’t throw fits of this manner. When she spoke again, desperation and hurt tinged her words, “How could you? How could Father?”
“It’s for the good of the people, Ashlynn,” Aoife insisted, her expression remaining staid. “A true ruler makes sacrifices.”
Ashlynn exhaled, trying to find her balance. “I do not require a man to help me rule our people.” She tried to sound calm and rational even though her rage flourished inside, pulsing like a demon’s fire. “I am far more capable than any man or woman in the clan. You know it as true as I.”
“Be that as it may,” Aoife replied, inclining her head, “your father and I must consider our people before your feelings and if you were thinking with the heart of a ruler, which,” she arched a delicate eyebrow, “you should be, you would see the logic in this arrangement.”
“Arrangement?” Ashlynn shook her head, growing more desperate the longer they spoke. Her mother was being intractable, immovable, logical. How could she fight back against reason with passion? But, it was all she had. Ashlynn let her emotions seep into her voice. If she was to be a scapegoat, her family would know how much their betrayal had destroyed her. “Let us call it for what it is, Mother,” she spit out the word. “I’m to be sold off like cattle to the Scots so that you and our people,” she ground the words out between clenched teeth, “can continue the lives to which they’ve grown accustomed. You would sacrifice me to the savages and then demand me smile prettily as I am carted off into the wilderness. You ask too much.”

Hi, I’m bestselling Author, JJ King!
I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Newfoundland and often feel closer to my little slice of Earth than I do to anything else, other than my family of course. Everything about this place appeals to me; the people, the customs, and the language here have shaped my entire world and gifted me with a flair for romance.
I have been writing all my life, but only recently and with the support of people dear to my heart has it become more than just a hobby. I’ve taken my love of reading romance to the next level and I’m so happy I did.
As for who I am and what I’m like… I’m funny, or at least I think I am. I’m irreverent about a lot of things and believe Buffy the Vampire Slayer to be the best thing to come out of television. I love reading but I rarely get the chance anymore because I’m usually writing. My go to reading choice is paranormal but I’m really getting into contemporary. It’s always romance, though. I did a degree in English Literature and loved most of the classics and poetry, but I love a good romance and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
I have two Author besties, Candace Osmond and J. Margot Critch. They are amazing people and fantastic Authors.
