MediaKit_BookCover_InTheTowerOfTheWizardKingIn the Age of Wizards, Time is a commodity more valuable than gold. When Aoife (EE-fa) stumbles upon an antique trunk in the attic, it calls to her with an ancient magic. Inside she finds a stairway leading into darkness and cannot resist stepping onto that first stair. It leads her to dark truths her mother never wanted her to uncover and love so powerful she walks through time to save it.

Her magic is dormant.

When Aoife Burke rushes home after the unexpected death of her father, she discovers her mother has vanished amidst inexplicable circumstances. She returns to her childhood home to search for clues of her mother’s whereabouts but another shock awaits her. Sean O’Connell, the object of her girlhood crush, has purchased the family home. She senses Sean is hiding something from her, refuses to let her inside and does everything he can to keep her out. A determined Aoife breaks inside and stumbles upon an antique trunk in the attic. When she opens it, instead of the normal musty clothes and ancient letters, she finds a stairway leading into darkness. It calls to her and she cannot resist stepping into the trunk and onto that first stair where it leads her to magical truths her mother never wanted her to discover.

His magic is dangerous.

Sean O’Connell has been assigned by the Inter-dimensional Portal Protection Agency to keep Aoife and her mother out of Faery. But when she breaks into the house and disappears through the portal in the trunk—like her mother—he has no choice but to follow her, even though stepping into Faery will force him to face his past. Keeping her safe and out of the hands of the Wizard King also becomes a fight to save Aoife’s life from her own mother, who has discovered a time portal in Faery leading her back in time to alter her past mistakes, putting Aoife’s life in peril. Sean is willing to do anything to make sure she’s safe. Even if it means he has to tap into his dangerous magic to do it.

Enjoy an Exclusive Excerpt:

She lifted her hands, ready to place them on the orb but before she could, men materialized all around them. Men that were royal guards. And one man in particular who appeared next to Fiona and clasped her wrists, pulling her away. She shrieked in frustration.

He was tall with pale blond hair and the coolest blue eyes Aoife had ever seen. His chiseled jaw was set with solid resolve as he clamped his arms around her mother and dragged her away from the still humming sphere.

“Let me go, Niall!”

“I know what you mean to do, Fiona, and I’ll not let you. You cannot erase what we had together. You cannot erase our child.”

“Aw, shit,” Sean said under his breath.

Comprehension smashed into Aoife with such force, she took a quick sharp breath.

Fiona struggled against him, trying to wiggle her way free and kicking her feet. But the man, Niall, held tight. He was stronger than she and Aoife couldn’t help but stare in awe at the two of them. Seeing her mother fight like a wild cat was unlike anything she had ever witnessed.

Aoife moved closer to Sean and slipped her hand in his. “What’s happening? Who is that man?”

Sean expelled a breath as though he’d been deflated. “That’s the Wizard King. We are so screwed.”

About the Author: MediaKit_AuthorPhoto_InTheTowerOfTheWizardKingMichelle Miles grew up in North Central Texas in a rodeo town but was far more interested in nerdy things like Star Trek and Star Wars. She started writing fan fiction in high school. When being an archeologist like Indiana Jones or a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader didn’t work out, she decided writing was her gig and has wanted to write her own stories ever since.

Her love of romance started when she picked up Victoria Holt and Daphne du Maurier and was immediately smitten with the genre. But she also found another love in the fantasies of Patricia A. McKillip and Anne McCaffrey. Since she couldn’t decide which genre to pick—and because she’s a true Gemini—she decided it would be super fun to write contemporary and fantasy romance. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and has served on the board of several chapters as president and treasurer.

In her spare time, she enjoys listening to music, reading, cross-stitching and watching movies. A Native Texan, she loves castle, dragons, fairies and elves and is an avid Game of Thrones fan. She can be found online at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Goodreads.
