He Was Born To Inherit A Country, But The Crown He Is Destined To Wear Is The Very Threat Against His Life

Erich du Woernig grew up knowing he would someday inherit his father’s position as the Duke of Horstberg. He also grew up observing the powerful and tender love shared by his parents. Determined to find that same kind of love in his own life, he is holding out for a woman who can see more in him than a marriage that will give his future wife prestige and great wealth. 

After more than a decade of searching for the right woman, Erich may have finally found a love beyond anything he’d imagined. But his happiness and the stability of the country is at risk when a long-dormant evil comes to the surface in Horstberg, threatening his life and that of his young nephew, who is Erich’s heir. While Erich tries to remain confident that he will live long enough to claim his right to serve his country, he is haunted by premonitory dreams that imply his life will come to a tragic end.

As a force of extremist revolutionaries force Horstberg to the brink of war, the entire du Woernig family must flee into hiding for the sake of their own survival. Only when everything is on the line does Erich come to fully understand what truly matters.

If you missed the first three books in the Horstberg Saga, they are now available in one ebook called Horstberg Saga Volumes 1-3 at considerable savings over the single titles.
