A Breath of Sunlight
Don’t show compassion for men. Never save a man’s life. And no matter what, never fall in love with someone you must ultimately kill. But some rules are meant to be broken, even if it means risking your life by betraying your valkyrie sisters.
The plan was simple—attack the Pits, kill the male slaves, save the women. But when Skaja runs into a fae man she can’t kill, she instead breaks all the rules to save him.
Prince Calle was sold into slavery by his jealous brother, and he would do anything to taste freedom again, even put his trust in a dangerous valkyrie. To protect his people and gain the throne, he and Skaja must trust each other. But neither of them expected trust to turn into something more, and the cost of love has a much steeper price than either of them anticipated.

Six years after being beaten and discarded by his brother, Prince Calle’s life now revolves around mining in the Pits day in and day out. Wishing death would come quickly, Calle is shocked when Skaja and her valkyrie sisters attack, kill all the men, and take the women to safety but leave him to escape. Skaja, who has been a valkyrie ever since she can remember, can’t understand why she is so drawn to Calle, or why he claims to know her from the past. When he finds out that his brother, the King, has been abusing not only his power on the throne, but also his wife and children, Calle decides that it is time to stand up for what is right and bring the kingdom back into order and safety. But just how far can Calle and Skaja’s budding relationship be stretched? And will the people ever accept him as King when they believe he’s been dead this whole time?
A fantastically written fable full of beautiful characters that leap off the pages! A brutal warrior harpy and a kind-hearted fae find themselves gradually falling in love in the purest sense with complementing personalities. This is truly a story of redemption as both Calle and Skaja seek to break down their own walls to redeem themselves of past misgivings. The building fire between them starts slowly but is consistent with a deep and meaningful love story. The two brother’s conflict and war is so masterfully written that the reader can feel the heartache and turmoil right alongside Calle. A beautifully written work of art from pen to page!
