My snippet this week comes from the first story in the trilogy, The Contingency Plan.
For context, this scene takes place on day two as they prepare to leave Marcelo’s home in Sheburat to begin their new lives together in Efren’s kingdom of Zioneven.
Efren’s 3rd-person POV
When Marcelo finally turned to Efren, the earlier unbridled enthusiasm for his new life had dimmed from his eyes. Perhaps due to a touch of impending homesickness after that gauntlet of familial good-wishes, or maybe because he was clever enough to understand the risks of their upcoming journey. He was also bright enough to have developed second thoughts—worries—now that his initial enchantment with his new husband was viewed in the light of day and all the realities of life that came with it.
That last possibility was the one Efren could best allay. Witnesses be damned, Efren lifted one of Marcelo’s slender hands to his lips, then cupped the younger man’s jaw to raise that delicately rounded, but surprisingly strong chin. Marcelo’s eyes widened when Efren lightly kissed him in front of everyone, but the magical captivating sparkle from the previous night relit.

In this light fantasy world, four realms have settled into an uneasy peace. A surprise twist to a prearranged marriage agreement spawns this story of unexpected love, newfound courage, and heroic adventure. Join Princes Efren and Marcelo on their heart-warming journey as they sort through misleading twists and turns to defeat devious foes. Twice! Contains the stories:
The Contingency Plan: An untimely death throws a marriage arrangement, the final phase of a treaty, into disarray. Now the Crown Prince of Zioneven can make his own choice from among the princess’s younger siblings. As a royal son in the matriarchal sovereignty of Sheburat, Prince Marcelo grew up knowing Royal sons never married. Never. Period. Except Prince Efren isn’t from Sheburat, and he has other plans.
The Best-Laid Plans: A death that wasn’t what it seemed … A kidnapping that isn’t what it seems … Time is running out. Enmeshed in political intrigue, death, and a kidnapping, will Prince Efren untangle the web of clues in time to save his naïve young husband, or will Prince Marcelo dig deep to discover a previously untapped inner strength and determination to facilitate his own survival?
Change of Plans: Once upon a time, two handsome young princes fell in love, faced down adversity, and lived happily-ever-after… until one romantic evening, they unwittingly ate a confection laced with a mind-wiping toxin. Are their chances at rekindling their love doomed? Or will their ignominious new beginning propel them toward a more teasingly fun rapport?
Also contains three bonus scenes not included with the individual stories.
NOTE ON BONUS SCENES: the bonus scenes in the box set are included for the reader’s convenience, but are also available to read for free here on my website.
NOTE ON KU: The box set will not be in Kindle Unlimited, but if you are a subscriber, fear not! The individual stories are in Kindle Unlimited (not via KDP, so they’re not tied to an exclusivity deal).
