After a failed courtship in an ally kingdom, twenty-one-year-old Princess Alessandra returns home to a land torn apart by mutual hatred between the humans and the dark-elves. The "Beast Princess," as Aless is known by courtiers, confidently sets her mind to ways of making peace, but her father has already decided for her: she is to marry one of the mysterious and monstrous dark-elves to forge a treaty, and go on a Royal Progress across the kingdom to flaunt their harmonious union. While she intends to preserve the peace, the Beast Princess has plans of her own.
Prince Veron has been raised knowing his life is not his own, but to be bargained away by his mother, the queen of Nozva Rozkveta, to strengthen the dark-elf queendom. When his mother tells him he is to marry a self-absorbed, vile human, he is determined to do his duty regardless of his personal feelings. After arriving at the human capital, he finds the "Beast Princess" rebellious and untamed—and not to be trusted.
Aless and Veron face opposition at every turn, with humans and dark-elves alike opposing the union violently, as well as their own feelings of dissonance toward each other. Can two people from cultures that despise one another fall in love? Can a marriage between them bond two opposing worlds together, or will it tear them apart for good?

Most would say the “sweet” and “quiet” Signorina Arabella Belmonte has lived a quiet life as a young noblewoman in her family’s castello. But little do they know she pens treatises criticizing the realm’s warmongers… and now there’s a price on her head. As she struggles to hide her seditious activities, a chance encounter with a unicorn leaves her with four hooves and a horn of her own—and a form she can’t control. The dark-elf queen has offered her a chance to acquire that control… if Bella can find the unicorn who turned her.
Prince Dhuro of Nightbloom has never met a problem he couldn’t solve with his fists—that is, until he fought his sister for a place in the army’s elite forces and lost. When the light-elves defeated them and his father was executed, Dhuro’s inner demons laid claim to the whole of him. Now Immortal beasts are growing in power and threatening his people.
Dhuro has a chance to help his people win, but his mother, the queen, sends him on a fool’s errand instead—helping a human newly turned unicorn find her sire, and asking the impossible: whether the Elder of the pacifistic unicorns will stand with them against the beasts ravaging his people. Making things worse, Bella challenges his every decision, argues with him, infuriates him… until beneath the full moon, she shifts to her human form... and enchants him.
A war is raging, Dhuro must marry for political advantage, and only Bella’s sire can help her... And when the bounty hunters hunting her find them, Dhuro and Bella’s worldviews collide like life and death. But can he be the answer to helping her control her form, and can she chase away his darkness? Can they find a way to be together and fight the war threatening to devour the land… or will it swallow them too?

She trusted him once.
He betrayed her twice.
A third time could bring an entire kingdom to its knees…
Stuck in a betrothal to a cruel werewolf fiancé, Rielle works for the Divinity of Magic, the one thing keeping her from his claws. And the head of the Divinity knows it, giving her every mission no one else wants and few can handle. When an enemy of the Divinity invades their walls, someone needs to frogmarch him home, with no detours. No mage would ever want to handle a magic-nullifying knight… So, of course Rielle is assigned to do it.
The way to their destination is rife with danger—a civil war is brewing, and tangled somewhere in it is Rielle’s best friend, Olivia. When whispers reveal mercenaries have killed the king, taken the capital, and that no one is coming to help, Rielle can’t leave Olivia in peril. But as infamous mages and deadly assassins hunt her holy knight charge, she can’t leave him unprotected either—especially as she finds herself falling for his strength, his passion, and his uncompromising goodness...
Her past returns to haunt them, her werewolf fiancé stalks their steps, and an ancient evil is gathering, yet the restraints forbidding their love strain and snap one by one. Can they overcome the war in their way, or will trusting a two-faced ally tear them apart, and leave Olivia and an entire besieged kingdom to fray at the ends...?

★★★★★ "Blade & Rose is an epic romantic fantasy. It's the kind of story in which the author doesn't mind allowing her readers to suffer so that she can bring forth a great story with depth and passion, a story that will stay with you." - Amazon Reviewer
★★★★★ "Honfleur’s writing is complex, vivid and imaginative. It reveals the mysteries in the most satisfying manner and mixes in some epic romance and some passionate scenes... the characters are complex, relatable and feel so real. This universe she created feels so cohesive. I am honestly so impressed with these books.
Master Mage Rielle is counting the months to her wedding when an unexpected invitation arrives from Magehold--to compete for magister. The magister’s mantle has been her dream for over a decade, but rumors accuse Magehold of shadowy deeds, among them killing families to collect promising young novices.
Piracy has been rampant along the Emaurrian coast, and Jon has his hands full with Immortals attacking, his forces spread too thin to handle it all. When Magehold announces the winner of the Magister Trials will be granted one boon, Rielle is determined to ask for an end to the piracy that threatens so many others and harmed her own family... and to investigate whether Magehold was responsible. But when she arrives, she learns that the trials have only one rule: survive.
Magehold could easily stamp out the piracy claiming countless lives, and if she wins the trials, Rielle could see it done. But with the other mages competing to kill, strangers hunting her in the shadows, and mysterious factions working behind the scenes, trying to win the test could mean the end of her life. Will the trials give her the answers she seeks and the aid Emaurria sorely needs, or will they be her end?

Elementalist Rielle needs to get to the man she loves before the assassin pursuing him finds her mark. There's only one problem: she's chained aboard a slave ship bound for a foreign land.
And her new life is harsh, with her movements watched, food scarce, and safety even scarcer. Immortals ravage Emaurria, and a distant relation sparks the fires of rebellion against the new king while shrewd royals angle for an advantageous marriage. Powerful foreign nobles whisper promises in Rielle's ear—and lies with fatal consequences--but with more than her life at stake, whom can she trust? And while Jon faces personal demons, wars, widespread hunger, unrest, and politics, the assassin lurks in his periphery, a knife in the dark.
With her death looming at every turn and an unforgiving barren desert between her and Jon, can Rielle save him before it's too late, or will the brutal sands claim her life... and everything she loves?

A witch. A tryst. A curse…
Beneath the murky waters of the lake, an ancient being slumbers, and Brygida is its servant.

As Brygida investigates, the dangers are many and answers few. The village and her family stand against her, and with time running short, the lake demands a price. Brygida believes Kaspian is innocent, but can she stake her life on it, when failure means condemning the rest of the village, and being dragged into the deep...?

The war cut him in two. Only she can stitch his torn soul, if he’ll let her in...
Born to a family of poor tailors, Lucia Perona has two talents: sewing and looking nearly identical to Princess Bianca of Silen. When a dark-elf warband begins to tear the kingdom apart, the princess and several highborn ladies are to be sent to a monastery for their safety. But to protect the princess, Lucia is sent in her stead. If only the dark-elf warlord leading the enemy didn’t see the value of trading hostages for territory… and cared to respect the holiness of a monastery.
Dakkar grew up the son of a queen, raised to honor strength, the ways of the Deep and Darkness, and the power of his royal mother. A human once stole his immortal life, yet the queendoms form a peace with an entire kingdom of selfish and untrustworthy humans, transgressions seemingly forgiven. Appalled, Dakkar leaves everything he knows to avenge victims like him and lead a warband of like-minded dark-elves to reclaim their dignity. After a few successful raids on human territories, he learns of a way to acquire more, bloodlessly: acquiring valuable hostages to ransom. If only the most valuable of these hostages wasn’t so troublesome. If only she didn’t disprove his assumptions about humans at every turn...
As the humans and the queendoms negotiate for the women’s freedom, Lucia continually chafes against her bonds and attempts to free herself and her friends, so much so that Dakkar shackles her to him. Forced to endure his presence, she seeks to demonstrate her people’s strength at every opportunity--and find a way to end her captor. Only… when the time comes, she thwarts an attempt on his life. Hated by her fellow captives and looked upon with suspicion by Dakkar, she becomes responsible for their continued imprisonment...and devising a way to end it, without the aid she spurned.
The might of the allied queendoms and a human king threaten to rip the warband--as well as Dakkar and Lucia--apart, and if Lucia can’t repair the damage she caused, she’ll lose everything she never knew she wanted, and he’ll lose the half of his soul he never knew he needed. Can Lucia help a warlord see hope in the darkness, or will they lose each other… and the people they’ve hopelessly trapped along with them?

Should it wake, its nightmares will consume the world…
After her life nearly fell apart, Brygida finally knows her place: away from the village, with her mothers, healing the slumbering wood to keep the nightmares at bay. Her family grimoire warns that the wood may never be allowed to wake, and she claims that duty for her own. Her mind does turn to the new lord of Rubin, but wishing for more almost lost her everything, and she’s not about to lose her witchlands to its nightmares caused by the villagers. That is, until the dreaded cult arrives…
Kaspian has never wanted the rulership, but when his father passes away, he has no choice but to ascend to lord. With tensions high between the village and the witches, trust lacking between him and his subjects, and a heavy heart turned toward the wood, Kaspian can’t help but wish for someone to take it all away… And then a familiar face from his past comes to grant it.
With a tide of blood and demons in its wake, the cult arrives to cleanse the so-called stain of witchcraft upon Rubin, and it won’t stop until Brygida and her mothers are dead. But with demons closing in and the fitfully slumbering wood ready to wake, the cult’s spark of violence could destroy not only the region of Rubin, but everything. Desperate for allies, betrayed by blood, and alienated from one another, can Brygida and Kaspian stem the dark tide of the cult together, or will they, their people, their lands, and everything drown in the mortal inevitability of blood, demons, and a waking wood with an insatiable hunger...?

An offering. An omen. An ill fate…
Before the night of the winter solstice, Brygida has everything: her mothers, a full heart, and possibly a place in two worlds. But between those worlds is the darkness, and when it comes time to make the offering to the dark god, the lady of Rubin falls in… and so does Brygida.
The land of Rubin is caught in a wolf’s maw. As a smaller, weaker region, it relies on Lady Rubin’s gift of diplomacy to stave off ruin. But as the heavy snows appear, she disappears without a trace. And Brygida, true to her ill-made offering, becomes the village’s prime suspect—along with her mothers. When she’s attacked by a demon and marked, she believes the same demon may have taken Lady Rubin. To defeat it before the mark reaches her heart and kills her, and to avoid a clash between her mothers and the village, she agrees to help Lady Rubin’s son Kaspian find her. As the winter deepens and the search stretches, however, demons and spirits begin to emerge in great numbers… with great hunger…
Plagued by strange creatures and malevolent foes, Brygida and Kaspian search for Lady Rubin, praying to find her alive. If they succeed, it could balm the divide between the witches and the village, as well as that between Rubin and the bloodthirsty land at its border. To rescue her might repel the wolf at the door, but then there remains the mark reaching for Brygida’s heart, and the mysterious swell of demons and spirits, staining the snows like an ever-spreading pool of blood...
Find out what fate the demon has in store for Brygida and Rubin in FATE OF THE DEMON, the second book in this romantic dark fantasy series inspired by Slavic mythology and folklore, sure to please fans of Juliet Marillier’s Blackthorn & Grim series and Naomi Novik’s Uprooted.
