“Thought-provoking with a sinuous thread of romance and danger.” Kirkus Reviews

General Winston's Daughter
Heiress Averie Winston has traveled to Chiarrin, where her father is leading the army that has just invaded this exotic land. She is delighted to be reunited with her fiancé, who is an officer in the army, and she is fascinated by Chiarrin, so different from her home country. But as she falls under the spell of this colorful new land, she begins to question the ethics of imperialism—and she finds herself attracted to a soldier named Ket Du’kai, a man so different from anyone else she knows that he is changing the way she views the world.

Publishing history:
Hardback published October 2007.

Interesting tidbit:
The whole time I was writing this book, I was picturing actor Naveen Andrews as Ket Du’kai.

Favorite scene:
The party in Chapter Ten…particularly Averie’s dance with Lieutenant Du’kai.
