Her whole life was a lie.
Kept isolated by her foster family, Harlette is a little dreamy, a touch immature and a hopeless romantic. All things that might change if she could go to college or get a job! Instead, however, Harlette finds herself thrust into a whole new world—Ara. This strange world has elves, giants, talking chickens, human-sized insects, and a dark force that knows a little too much about her.
The elven king Karayan is the biggest problem. Millenia old, brooding, dark, incredibly sexy and emotionally unavailable. At least some things don't change! Soon Harlette finds herself swept into interdimensional conflicts, new languages and people, mysteries about her parentage and her abilities and battles with Karayan, who is used to people obeying him.
Will life on Ara allow Harlette to grow up? Will she be strong enough to face the challenges thrown at her?
The Tales of Ara are slightly sexy, slightly violent, and a lot over the top! If you like pell-mell pacing and anime-style plotting, this is the book for you!
