A marriage to his people’s worst enemy is only the start of Rick’s troubles. Ancient magic rears its ugly head, and his promise to Aidan, to find the third Watchtower, puts him right in the middle of an oncoming storm.
Waking up collared to his enemy isn’t the worst thing that happened to Rick–waking up to an impending forced marriage is. Yet, he can’t deny that underneath the anger he is attracted to Tom, King of bloody everything and enemy to Rick’s people.
Tom’s bumbling efforts to get closer to him, his puppy dog eyes, and surprising honesty are slowly winning Rick over. But travelling to the cursed land where no one outside Tom’s clan has set foot in centuries is only the start of their adventure.
Betrayal from within and his investigation into the ancient magic of the Watchtowers make Rick’s life more than interesting. But even he can’t anticipate where his search will lead him.

Alric is the Prince of Lantea, a country comprising of a peninsula jutting from the much larger country of Allin, which is ruled by Prince Tomas. Allin and Lantea have been at odds for a few generations and Prince Tomas has been obsessed with Prince Alric since they first met in college. Prince Alric is captured by Tomas who convinces Alric’s father to consent to his son’s marriage to the Prince of Allin and an adventure steeped in mystery, suspense and intrigue follows. The ceremony is set and the vows exchanged. But one of them is harboring a secret. In fact, both Princes are harboring secrets that they themselves don’t even know about.
Anna Marie May will take you on a delightfully entertaining adventure in a land deep in history, legend and lore. Her uncanny ability to solve one problem while simultaneously creating even more mystery will both amaze and amuse you. Her attention to detail informs the reader without being distracting or boring and her characterizations are highly descriptive without being tedious. Her scene descriptions allow the reader to walk with her characters side by side.
This is the 3rd book in the Watchtower Series and although it will stand on its own, I recommend reading the previous books first as it will add to the mystery and intrigue that the author carries from book to book. However, if you choose to read this story first, you will still be highly entertained.
The Watchtower Series in order are:
“Over The Rainbow”, “Over The Moon”, “Out Of The Werewolf Closet” and coming soon, “Icelands”.
