The Duchess’s Descendants

Jordinia: Book 3

Book Cover: The Duchess's Descendants

The next generation. A new adventure...

Over three decades have passed since the Ducelle Empire reclaimed the land, and Jordinia has never prospered more. When the emperor negotiates a treaty among neighboring nations, Jordinia is awarded an archipelago of islands in the north. With intentions to colonize, His Majesty enlists his two underachieving nephews on an expedition to chart the wilderness.

Reclusive Ludwig has his violin and no desire to travel, while his charismatic brother, Drew, is seduced by the grandeur of making history...and money. Desperate to flee a secret scandal of her own, their sister, Johanna, insists upon accompanying them. With a team of soldiers - including longtime friend and royal guardsman, Bram Visigoth - the Cosmith siblings set off to conquer their uncle's newly-acquired territory.

From an icy shipwreck to precarious encounters with the native inhabitants, almost nothing goes as planned in this fast-paced comedy of errors teeming with humor, fantasy and plenty of romance. Prepare to fall in love with Jordinia all over again!

Seriously, the world of Jordinia is ripe with adventure, political intrigue, and humongous personalities - and I love rediscovering every nook and cranny with each book!" - Betwixt the Pages

This book was full of surprising twists, gut-wrenching moments, and sweet discoveries of the heart.

We traveled to mysterious lands and had new adventures but the spirit of Jordinia lived on in this book." - Up 'Til Dawn Book Blog

"...beautifully-written tale following three unique love stories, each with a heart of their own.
