A Play For Power

Princess Oria has one chance to keep her word and stop her brother’s reign of terror: She must become queen. All she has to do is marry first. And marry Lonen, the barbarian king who defeated her city bare weeks ago, who can never join her in a marriage of minds, who can never even touch her—no matter how badly she wants him to.

A Fragile Bond

To rule is to suffer, but Lonen never thought his marriage would become a torment. Still, he’s a resourceful man. He can play the brute conqueror for Oria’s faceless officials and bide his time with his wife. And as he coaxes secrets from Oria, he may yet change their fate…

An Impossible Demand

With deception layering on deception, Lonen and Oria must claim the throne and brazen out the doubters. Failure means death— for them and their people.

But success might mean an alliance powerful beyond imagining…


“If you like epic political fantasy, this series is like crack. It has everything. Complex magic, political skullduggery, epic battle sequences, horrible monsters and a love story that looks like it is going to be one for the ages.”

~Reading Reality

“Kennedy’s writing is always exceptional, her world building deep and her characters complex. She soars with this exotic and compelling series of two kingdoms, two ways of life, and two lovers who seem as disparate as Jekyll and Hyde, yet are anything but.”

~Vicki Stiefel

“I do recommend the Sorcerous Moons series so far to fans of super-slow-burn fantasy romance with a nice side of royal intrigue and power struggle, and some very interesting magic system and magic action.”


“We continue to enjoy Lonen and Oria’s journey.  They both genuinely care for one another.  The banter between them (and including Chuffta – still our favorite character) is endearing as is the palpable tension between Lonen and Oria.”

~That’s What I’m Talking About
