New Release: A Marriage of Necessity – Lisa Oliver

A Marriage of Necessity - Lisa Oliver

QSFer Lisa Oliver has a new MM fantasy romance out: A Marriage of Necessity.

I owe my mother everything.

Jasper, the youngest Prince from Lowenthorp, had one driving need – to get away from the castle. After being abducted, abused, and having lost an eye, Jasper believed his only chance of keeping his Mother safe was to be as far away from her as possible. Which was why, when his Mother suggested a Marriage Contract, Jasper agreed. He didn’t care who he married, so long as he could keep his Mother safe.

I can’t believe I’ve just agreed to marry a man I haven’t met. Maybe there was something in those mushrooms.

Avalon, Crown Prince of Cijan, never wanted to marry. He’d lost his fiancé many years before and determined a life filled with duty and travel was enough. Until he heard Jasper’s story. Deciding he could be a friend to the young prince, if nothing else, marrying Jasper would at least put a stop to the endless Marriage Contract suggestions his father had been dealing with.

A marriage of necessity could work for them both…

Magic, whales, and ships that pass in the night. Somehow Avalon and Jasper are drawn together and when Jasper jumps overboard… The heart knows what the heart wants.

As an author I rarely include trigger warnings – I rarely write stories that include anything triggering. However for readers sensitive to discussions of abuse, there are two paragraphs in the book where this is alluded to. While I promise this story has a very sweet and happy ending, if this is a trigger for you, then this might not be the story for you.

“Father, no.” Avalon leaned back from the table as if the paper smelled bad. “Father, you promised, after what happened… you said you wouldn’t do this.”

“And I’m not breaking my word now. Listen.” His father reached over the table with his hand, and after a long moment, Avalon took it. “This could work for both you and Jasper, can’t you see?”

“No, I can’t see.” Avalon didn’t get stubborn very often, especially with his father, but there were some boundaries he would not let even his father cross. “Getting married isn’t compulsory unless the World Council have made law changes since the last time I was there.”

“It’s not compulsory, no, but you have to admit people talk when people get to a certain age and they aren’t attached to someone, even on paper.”

Author Bio

Lisa Oliver’s first fiction book was The Reluctant Wolf, book one in the Cloverleah series. Since then she’s written more than ninety other titles spanning a number of different series including Bound and Bonded, Stockton Wolves, Balance, The God’s Made Me Do it, City Dragons, The Necromancer’s Smile, and the Alpha and Omega series. A huge fan of the true mate trope, Lisa’s books are all paranormal, all M/M (although a few M/M/M have crept in too) and all have an HEA.

When not writing, Lisa can be found with her nose in a book. Her adult children and grandchildren have found the best way to get her off the computer is to offer her chocolate.
