Series: Wicked Reads #7



I usually love the Wicked Reads short stories, so I don’t read the blurbs anymore, just get them. Because of that I was a bit surprised to find this story was a sci-fi-romance. Totally not expecting that! After the initial shock of the genre I actually got into the story.This is a lovers reunited tale. Princess Maya had an affair with Shannon Braxton. At the time he was engaged to be married to another. His intended ended up marrying a ruthless czar from another world.

After this czar is suspected of murdering all his previous wives, he now seeks to marry Princess Maya, and her father, in order to save her, has decided to marry her off to Shannon Braxton, who is now King in his world, after the death of his father. Not only to save her from a disastrous fate but as an allegiance between their two worlds.

Maya and Shannon will have to get past their previous issues of her believing she was basically dumped after he took her virginity, all while saving her from an obsessed killer.

About Mackenzie McKade

Born and raised in Arizona, I guess you'd call me a desert rat. Well, actually, I'd be a desert rat that loves the mountains and lakes. Arizona gives me great pleasure, because if I'm not at the computer writing or buried nose deep in a book you'll find me on a four-wheeler, or a jet ski, or being pulled behind my 26’ Monterey boat on an oblong tube called a ‘hot dog’ laughing my ass off. In fact, my family says I have an unnerving cackle cutting through the waves--similar to a witch!

Yes, that's right this witch has a family... Bill is my wonderful husband of twenty-two years. Tia, Samantha and Ashley are my three beautiful girls and my greatest accomplishments to date. And the light of my life is a devilishly handsome grandson, Dusty.

As writing is a passion with many—it’s an obsession with me. Who knew that the wild things going on in my head someone would actually read? But I'm thankful you do and I hope you find joy and entertainment in my sometimes—okay most of the time—risqué ramblings.

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
