Swords and Scimitars: A Fantasy Short Story
The lives of well-born twins Kismet and Taso are easy and carefree—endless days of bedding women and fighting battles among the gods—until sorcery drives a wedge between them that slices deeper than flesh. Kismet has striven to be the ultimate warrior, but a mistake costs him his brother, his family, and his homeland.
He carves out a new life in the desert, rising to the command of a realm and an army, yet can’t escape his past. When two women beg for his aid against tyranny, he must sacrifice his freedom and his long-scarred heart to help them.
“From the first page I was instantly transported into a well-developed fantasy world and couldn’t put my Kindle down until I had finished the last page. A fast-paced story with heartfelt emotion!”
“Kismet is a magnificent hero who hides his wounds behind his power. As usual, Cate Rowan delivers a beautiful tale.”
“A fairy-tale-like adventure that will entertain even readers new to the series. Another worthy installment from an author who’s become an auto-buy for this reader!”
Sword and Lute: A Fantasy Romance Novelette
Slashed by a cursed sword, the god Taso feels his immortality gushing into the grass along with his lifeblood. He escapes death only by transforming into stone. Centuries later, the aspiring musician Amara stumbles across the stone and inadvertently morphs Taso back into his dying body. To save him, she must sacrifice her precious lute and her life-long dream . . . but in return, she might find her heart’s desire.
“Worth the price and then some! The author does an excellent job in weaving this lovely romantic tale where magic and music are one.”
“A time-warp vibe fusing elements of Antiquity with the Middle Ages and fantasy . . . Emotionally enlightening and sensually uplifting.”
