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.”
Happy New Year (and new decade), everyone! Elizabeth’s final release of 2019 was Running Scared by J.A. Sutherland, the sequel to Running Start. Both were produced for Tantor Audio. Elizabeth has also narrated the Alexis Carew series by Sutherland, all of which are available at Audible.

Rosa’s not sure it’s a fair trade.
