The Crown of Tremontane

This new series covers the lives of several generations of remarkable women belonging to the North family, rulers of the country of Tremontane. Warrior, spy, queen, thief, scholar–all have their stories to tell.

Servant of the Crown–Alison Quinn, Countess of Waxwold, never expected to leave her comfortable life to serve as lady-in-waiting to Queen Zara’s mother. She certainly never expected the Queen’s playboy brother, Prince Anthony North, or that they would become friends…and then much more. But when disaster tears Alison away, swearing never to return, it’s the Queen’s summons that brings Alison back, this time to serve as Royal Librarian. Can she save the Library and open her heart to love again?

Rider of the Crown–Imogen, warrior of the nomadic Kirkellan tribe, is forced to marry the vicious King of Ruskald as part of the peace between their nations. But the unexpected arrival of Elspeth North, heir to the Crown of Tremontane, brings three countries to the brink of war and sets Imogen free. Now as ambassador of her people to Tremontane, Imogen must learn new skills of diplomacy and cunning–and fight a forbidden attraction to King Jeffrey of Tremontane. When war again comes, Imogen will have to decide if she is warrior, diplomat–or something greater than both.

Exile of the CrownZara North, former Queen of Tremontane, left her throne and her family behind to keep her secret: she cannot be killed, she cannot age, and her magic could topple the North family from the throne. As an exile in her own country, Zara finds love, sorrow, and new purpose as the years pass and the world changes around her. This novella contains four short stories, episodes in Zara’s life, and covers the time between the end of Servant of the Crown and the beginning of the third Tremontane novel, Agent of the Crown.

Agent of the Crown–Princess Telaine North Hunter is spoiled, frivolous, and the toast of society throughout Tremontane. She’s also a spy. In her frivolous cover identity, she learns the secrets of the rich and powerful for her uncle, the King. But when she’s asked to set aside the glittering world of palace society to pretend to be a common Deviser in a frontier town, her skills are tested to the utmost. Telaine’s investigation could mean her death, but it could also mean the beginning of a new life.

  1. Just finished reading servant of the crown and I loved it! Flew through it in 6 hrs just couldn’t put it down!! Keep up the good work can’t wait to read the next one!

  2. I have read the first and I loved them and can’t wait till the next one comes out in ride of the crown I felt connected to imogen and I felt as if it were me there cause that’s how every day of my life is and I don’t know how she could put away one life cause both lifes make me me and if I had to let one go I loose myself.

    1. I’m so glad you liked them! Imogen finds a way to keep the best of both worlds, I think, even if she technically chooses one over the other. She goes on to be a famous breeder of horses and have lots of kids, some of whom we see in the next book.

  3. I just finnished the second book and i love this serie! And i was so exited to find out that the thirs book Ia coming in winter of 2016. Can’t want to read it! Are you planning more after the third in this serie? (Hoping:D)

    1. I’m so glad you like the series! The third will be coming out in March 2016 (there was a delay with the cover artist, who is amazing) and I’m almost finished writing the fourth. Then there will be a trilogy featuring Willow North, the first of the North queens, who gets mentioned here and there in the series. After that I’m hoping to do a final book that will feature the main characters from the four books. And, of course, there’s about 200 years of history between the time of Willow and that of Zara, so who knows if there might not be more books!

  4. I Love servant of the crown and I plan to read the next one soon. Although after reading the extension about queen Zara I was wondering if you had any plans to write about her new life?

    1. I have a novella about Queen Zara that will be released sometime in December that tells more about her life, and then she’ll have her own novel, Voyager of the Crown, coming out next year. I’m so glad you liked the book!

  5. I just love the books. My heart is raw from missing the characters at the end of each book. Thanks for writing them. You drew me in. 🙂

  6. Hello.

    First, thank you for writing the Crown of Tremontane series. I think it is so unique and wonderful.
    I know that I read somewhere that book four is coming out this month, but I can’t find the information anywhere. Has it been delayed or was I being fanciful?

    Thank you,
    Laura

    1. Hi Laura,

      I’m so glad you enjoy the books! Yes, the fourth book has been delayed because I have a new series launching in August. It’s going to be at least the end of this year before book four is ready for release. 🙁 It’s an ambitious project and I hope it’s worth waiting for!

      Thanks,
      Melissa

  7. Hi!

    I just finished Agent of the Crown and it’s really my favorite book of the series. Although I loved them all. Are there going to be more books in this series?
    Thanks

    1. I’m so glad you liked it! I think it’s my favorite of the series, too. I’m in the middle of finishing the final book of a trilogy set 200 years before Servant of the Crown. It’s about Willow, the first North queen, and I’m very excited about it. Right now the plan is to release the first book in August 2017, but I’ll post updates as they occur.

        1. The first volume is with the editor and I expect to publish it September 2017. The others will follow in short order, but my editor is going to be unavailable for a couple of weeks, so the publication schedule may be a bit slower than I’d anticipated. But I hope to have the whole thing published before the end of the year.
