SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOOLLAHRA DIGITAL LITERARY AWARDS 2017

Companions are the kingdom's most beautiful and educated women—possessions of Syrasan's royal men. Aldara is sixteen years old when she is sold by her farming family to the obnoxious Prince Pandarus as a gift for his younger brother, Prince Tyron. Resistant at first, the new Companion soon realises she must embrace the role or face the consequences of her failure. 

Prince Tyron has just returned from war. All he wants is privacy to grieve the men who died at the border. At his brother's insistence, Tyron attends a social hunt where his Companion is introduced for the first time. He senses something beneath the polished exterior presented to him. She is not like the others.

While initial encounters between the troubled war hero and his reluctant Companion are awkward, their connection is immediate. But they are soon reminded by those closest to them that there is no place for love between a prince and his Companion.

Set amid grief and war, The Royal Companion is a heart-warming love story about what it means to give yourself over to another.
 

Warning: This book contains sexual violence, death and dark themes.

Please note: This is a revised edition. It is part one of Tyron and Aldara's story. Their story continues in books two and three—available now.

    Hmm what can I say? It was an amazing read! I loved every bit of it. I do have my reservations to the unruly Zoelins but in all, I love the story line and the fact that when love was depicted, it was done in a sweet way. I look forward to read the other books in the series! Tanya Bird has definitely joined my hall of fame for amazing authors!

    I absolutely loved this book! A romance that shows how life in the Middle Ages really was, kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time!
  • It’s not a complete book

    It’s not badly written, but i have a peeve about books that don’t even pretend to be stand-alone stories. Series are super popular, I get it, but usually each book tells an episode and then sets up the next book by introducing some new threat (of whatever) that will carry the reader to the next book. This doesn’t even pretend to do that. It literally just ends with no warning, so joke’s on you, you bought 2/3 of a story and must buy another book, if the story interests you enough to fork out another several dollars.

    When I downloaded the book I thought it was going to be cheesy like a lot of the other books I’ve read. Boy was I wrong. I can’t wait until the next one comes out!

    I really enjoyed reading this story. It was difficult to put down, and when I did, I thought about getting back to it. I can’t wait to read the next book to learn more about Aldara and Tyron.

    Astounding reading experience for all medieval period literature lovers. Entertaining and full of spellbinding twists and turns that keep the reader wanting more. The characters leap off the pages and follow you into your own dreams of fiction versus reality. Definitely looking forward to the next book to satisfy my continuous thirst for revenge to take place with the evil characters who want only deception and tragic outcomes for the truly amazing men and women who are trying to make a difference in the lives for themselves and other hard working people.
