Cara, a young headstrong woman raised in the backwater province of Crowthorne, finds her fate bound to a system she despises and a goddess she no longer believes in. When it becomes clear that the heir to the Elbian throne has found disfavor in the eyes of the goddess Annul, Cara is ordained by blood and required by law to take her cousin’s place as heir apparent.
One man from each of the twelve provinces are chosen by the royal council to pledge their lives and swords as champions and consorts of the future queen. From these men, Cara must choose the future king of Elbia. Before she is able to take her place on the throne, Cara and her Twelve must visit each province and perform a sacred ceremony, one that will make Cara question everything she thought was real.
Cara soon realizes that not all of the men who swore to protect her are what they seem, and there are those who would use her as a tool to gain power.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always loved reading epic fantasy novels, and when Cara’s story came to me, I knew I had to write it down. The process of creating not only characters, but an entire world, was so much fun.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
With Cara having twelve men dedicating their lives to serve and protect her, I really wanted to show an array of personalities, and they became very unique characters in my mind.
