Unintended by Justine Alley Dowsett & Murandy Damodred
Four people. Four very different lives. Four tales interwoven.
Meet Kenzie en Shareed, the High Clan Chief’s daughter who is sent south to fulfill a treaty by marriage only to marry the wrong man; Kadrean Authier, the Crown Prince who must come to terms with his new bride, even if he doesn’t much like the idea; Garron D’Arbonne, a noble Lord who has been commanded to marry a cool and aloof princess he doesn’t love; and Vivianne Chappelle, a young and ambitious woman who is in love with her abusive father’s manservant and must find a way to avoid having her entire future decided for her.
Fate and wills collide in this Shakespearian-style romantic comedy about good intentions and their unintentional consequences.

Exclusive Excerpt #2
“I’m up two points already, are you sure you’re feeling well?”
Garron shook his head to clear it of thoughts of dark auburn hair and honey-brown eyes. He forced himself to focus on the sunny smile of his best friend. “What, am I not allowed to let you win every once and a while?” he teased.
“Sure,” Cyril agreed good-naturedly, “I’ll take a win if you’re in the mood to give it to me, but what’s the special occasion? Is it my birthday or something?”
“You tell me,” Garron grinned, noting for the first time just how alike he and Cyril were physically. “I can never remember when your birthday is.”
Cyril’s dirty-blonde hair was just a few shades darker than Garron’s own and combined with his friend’s tanned skin the two of them could easily be mistaken for brothers. That is, of course, providing that the person comparing the two of them didn’t already know what houses they both belonged to, which would only be possible if that person had spent their lives under a rock somewhere, or if they were from a land beyond the borders of Ismera.
Like Kenzie… Garron’s thoughts inevitably drifted back to the new and exotic beauty that had come from the North to invade his every waking moment.
Cyril was giving Garron a raised eyebrow. “Hello?” He waved his hand in Garron’s direct line of sight to make sure he was paying attention. “My birthday is the day before yours…are we really having this conversation?”
Garron laughed, but it sounded forced even to his own ears. “Yeah…I know.”
“You’ve got it bad, my friend,” Cyril noted with a shake of his head, his blue eyes knowing.
“What?” Garron’s head snapped up, shocked.
How could Cyril possibly know? Garron silently cursed his friend’s intuition. I haven’t even mentioned her name out loud and I’ve done everything possible to ignore her. Well, except for this morning, but he couldn’t know about that yet, it only just happened!
“I mean, I know Margaret’s pretty and all, but…”
Garron didn’t bother to listen to the rest of Cyril’s words, letting out a breath in relief and feeling his heart slow back to an almost normal pace. Margaret, of course…the woman I should be thinking about.
“Yeah, I’m really lucky,” Garron agreed, trying to sound positive and hoping that his friend would be kind enough not to call him out on the lie. “Can we just play, though? We’ve only got the court for an hour and I’d really like to take those two points away from you just for insinuating that I’d be crazy enough to let you beat me.”Cyril’s matching grin was all the answer Garron needed to look about for the ball; he was almost sure that it was his turn to serve.
