After a long winter in their small town of Jackpine, best friends Margaret and Louise are looking forward to enjoying some R&R in Thunder Bay. Louise has insisted that their stay include taking part in a women’s “discover your inner goddess” retreat. Margaret plans to track down a famously reclusive wildlife artist to persuade him to do a workshop for her art club in Jackpine.
Things get off to a rocky start when their hotel refuses to accommodate Louise’s canine companion Vince, and they are forced to stay at a dodgy establishment over a strip bar. Then Margaret clashes with the retreat leader. To complicate matters further, a dead body turns up next door to their retreat.
The deceased turns out to be a local casino manager with a lot of enemies. When Margaret spots the dead man’s widow being squired around town by a male companion, her curiosity is piqued. The ever-intrepid friends, against all advice and their better judgment, become embroiled in looking for clues to the murder. It’s a search that takes them all over the city and surrounding countryside, where they encounter a whole cast of possible suspects, including a dangerously lovelorn church organist, a stripper-turned barmaid, a fiery septuagenarian, and a widow with very expensive tastes. But are they getting too close to the truth for their own good?
Nineteen-year-old orphan Elaina has a lot going for her. She’s beautiful. She’s creative—crafting gourmet dairy products in a factory she built. She’s also a brilliant student, finding higher dimensional physics quite simple, really.
But she’s alone much of the day. She has no family and only two friends: her magnificent black horse, and her private tutor, Alessa.
Everything changes the day Elaina rescues the handsome Prince Jaimin of Arra. Pulled into his turbulent world, she becomes the secret girlfriend of a future king, and discovers true friendship and love.
When a bitter evil threatens to destroy her, the prince, her new friends, and the rest of the kingdom, Elaina finds a remarkable power within herself. Along with this power, she discovers who she truly is, the incredible truth about her parents, and how she came to live on the farm.
She also learns that only she can save everything she loves.
Follow Elaina, Prince Jaimin, and the socialite genius Nastasha, as they unravel clues from their past to save their kingdom.
A warrior prince, an enslaved mage, a plot to draw the world to war.
Crown Prince Aven Lanuken wants something more than a trophy for a future wife. He wants a woman who will be more friend than follower. A queen who will be more warrior than diplomat. He wants a partner he can trust… with a dangerous secret that’s kept him trapped in a dark mountain fortress his entire life.
Mage slave Miara wants something more, too—to find an enemy prince. And not to marry him. She’s just received orders for her very first kidnapping. She loathes the idea of it, and it’s probably a suicide mission. But she has never failed a mission before and doesn’t intend to start now.
Of all the women in the world, why does he have to fall for this one ?
Magic, politics, love, and fate collide in the destinies of two people in this fantasy adventure from R. K. Thorne. For lovers of swords and sorcery with a side of romance, Mage Slave is the first novel in the Enslaved Chronicles trilogy.
Sometimes the only way to escape your past… is go back to where it all began.

When Clarissa takes a much needed job under slightly false pretenses, she doesn’t think it will be such a big deal. She may have told her movie-star boss that she was married but that shouldn’t matter. After all, she doesn’t want anything to do with men for a long, long time.
It’s hard for a woman to keep up the masquerade when her boss is as handsome as Slade Jacobson and the job takes her to Hawaii with him. In between handling his whirlwind four-year-old daughter and dealing with a whole cast of Hollywood personalities, Clarissa has to keep a tight hold on her heart.
Masquerade is romantic comedy at its best–clean and funny with lots of heart.
