The Last Empress Publisher's Summary

Before the New Republic seized the nation, before its legendary duchess was ever lost or found...there was the last empress.

On her eighteenth birthday, Neandra Gatspierre, daughter of the Earl of Witham, learns that she has been chosen to wed Jordinia's future emperor, Dane Ducelle IV. In the diary she receives as a gift, Neandra chronicles her days from arriving to the palace in Pierma as a new bride and accepting the crown as empress, to navigating a complex marriage and suppressing her dangerous affections for another man. Meanwhile, an ill-starred succession of famine, economic decline, and plague threatens to inspire the country's most disgruntled citizens to full-fledged rebellion.

The stage is set for the epic, romantic adventure series in this fast-moving, diary-format prequel that will leave you aching to devour the whole saga.

This is a 20,000-word, spoiler-free prequel novella. It can be listened to before, after, or at any point in C.K. Brooke's Jordinia series.

    Dainy doesn't know that she is the lost duchess of Jordinia, or that her uncle has organized a contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward! Though at odds, three clashing rivals--a noble giant, a forester, and a thief--voyage together by woodland, plains, and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic triangle as her suitors compete to capture her heart. Charmingly romantic and bursting with action, startling twists, and vivid characters, fans of Anastasia and The Princess Bride will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.
