The fifth installment in the Companion series by Tanya Bird is now available at Audible: The Captain’s Prize. Elizabeth has narrated the previous four books in this series, and will return for the sixth book later this year.
Love is for the weak of mind.
Astra is queen of the Companion world. She has been at the king’s side for 10 years, but his interest is waning. If she can just hold on a little longer, she will take her rightful place as mentor and never share a man’s bed again. But a single game of cards threatens to bring her future to ruins. The king’s wager is a brutal reminder that she is replaceable, disposable – a prize to be won. Now, she must find a way to survive outside the castle until she can find a way back inside its walls.
Dion is captain of the Galen army – a soldier, a humanitarian, and possibly…a traitor. He does not believe in people as property, so the concept of a companion is confronting. Mistress or slave? He cannot decide. The king’s companion seems content enough with her eternal smile and ability to command a room with just a tilt of her head and flash of blue eyes, but he sees past the painted face and rehearsed laughter.
She is broken. She is fire. And a game of cards later, she is entirely his problem.
This is book five in The Companion series. If you enjoy a moving love story set in a medieval world, then you will love The Captain’s Prize.
Trigger warning: This book contains violence and dark themes.
Elizabeth is proud to annouce the release of Travellers in Magic, a collection of stories by National Book Award-winning author Lisa Goldstein, now available at Audible. This collection was produced for Tantor Audio.
Fifteen stories of ordinary lives that take fantastic turns.
Robert never quite feels at home with Cassie’s family, a gang of eccentrics including a reptile smuggler, a worshipper of Osiris, and an old woman who believes her photographs can see into the future. When he breaks up with Cassie, she is so upset that she gives him the most terrible thing she can offer: an envelope of her grandmother’s photos, which show in detail the path that Robert’s life will take. At first, this vision of the future gives him strength – but soon it becomes a prison on glossy paper.
A Nebula and Hugo Award finalist, “Cassandra’s Photographs” demonstrates all the power of Lisa Goldstein’s imagination. Whether she is writing about shape-shifting aliens or kind-hearted ghosts, Goldstein’s fantasies remain grounded in reality, supported by the kind of crystalline prose that takes a lifetime to master. This collection also includes the Nebula Award finalist “Alfred.”
The fourth book in the Companion Series by Tanya Bird is now available at Audible: The King’s Obsession. Elizabeth has narrated the previous books in this historical fantasy/romance series, and will be narrating one more, to be released early next year.
Love is long-suffering…but she has suffered long enough.
Behind every Companion is a mentor who must prepare her for the role. For nine years, Petra has existed within the castle walls. For nine years, the king has taken whatever he pleases – even her son.
When tragedy strikes, Petra realizes she can either accept her fate or run from it. But the man who owns her will stop at nothing to keep her. To survive, she must put her trust in enemy hands. To heal, she must learn to open her heart.
Sir Leksi is the prince’s right-hand man and Syrasan’s fiercest knight. He is also the kingdom’s most notorious womanizer. When he stumbles across a runaway in the woods, he is surprised to learn her identity but even more surprised when he is ordered to protect her. Intrigued by the hunted mentor, he decides to see what lies beneath the unsmiling face and vacant gaze. What he discovers might change him forever.

A relentless love. An impossible choice.
Companions are the kingdom’s most beautiful and educated women – possessions of Syrasan’s royal men. Aldara has left the Companion life behind her. Having returned south to her family, she thought all ties to her prince were severed. She was wrong. Now, she has a secret – one she must keep in order to protect the people she loves. But when her past shows up at her home, lives begin to unravel.
Still grieving the departure of his Companion and the death of his father, Prince Tyron is adjusting to life under his brother’s rule.

The newest Pride and Prejudice variation by best-selling author Abigail Reynolds is now available at Audible: Mr. Darcy’s Enchantment. This is the ninth P&P novel Elizabeth has narrated by Ms. Reynolds, and the first to be released by Tantor Audio.
In a Regency England where magic and faeries are real…
Fitzwilliam Darcy is a powerful magician who controls fire, water, and wind. What he cannot control is his growing feelings for Miss Elizabeth Bennet.
Elizabeth’s sentiments towards Darcy are quite different. She detests his arrogance, and she fears he will expose her use of forbidden magic – forbidden to women, that is. He is the last man in the world she would choose to help her on a difficult and dangerous task.
But when a magical war looms between the land of Faerie and their world, a Lord of Faerie demands that Darcy and Elizabeth serve together as his emissaries to make peace with the other mortals. That mission throws them into the middle of a chaotic power struggle between magicians whose power dwarfs their own, and everything Elizabeth has ever believed about her family, her friends, and her enemies will be called into question.
Elizabeth has just released the first book in an epic fantasy romance series by Tanya Bird: The Royal Companion, now available at Audible. Elizabeth will also be narrating the other three books in this series, which will be released over the next few months.
She is the gift he did not want. He is the prince she is forbidden to love.

Companions are the kingdom’s most beautiful and educated women – possessions of Syrasan’s royal men.
Aldara is 16 when she is sold to the obnoxious crown prince as a gift for his brother. Forced to leave the only life she has ever known, Aldara is sent to Archdale Castle, where she is mentored to become Prince Tyron’s perfect Companion. But no amount of lessons can prepare her for the troubled man marked by war. He sees straight through the polished exterior presented to him. He sees her. She must keep the facade together or deal with the repercussions.
Prince Tyron has just returned from war. All he wants is privacy to grieve the men who died at the border. So when his brother gifts him a Companion upon his return, he is forced to embrace a tradition he has so far managed to avoid. Except Aldara is not like the others. She walks with her face to the sun and arms swinging. Her laughter makes him forget the lie. But if they ignore the rules that safeguard them, there will be consequences….
This is book one in The Companion series. If you enjoy medieval romance that is out of this world, then this epic tale of love against all odds is for you.
Trigger warning: This book contains sexual violence, death, and dark themes.

Elizabeth has also narrated two other books in this series: the prequel Chaos in the Countryside, and Book 1, Herbs and Homicide. Both have been well-reviewed; a recent listener calls Herbs and Homicide “an imaginative mystery story that is suitable for pre-teens and older, interested in the magical and human worlds … Narration by Elizabeth Klett is very well done.”
