A Bestselling Author
To complete a war, King Xerxes calls every official in his kingdom to his palace to strategize. When they leave, he decides on one more week of frivolity, which ends in the banishment of his favorite wife. When he discovers Esther, Xerxes is sure he has a second chance at happiness. Esther could never have imagined she would end up as queen of Persia. Yet she knows better than to become complacent. Xerxes's closest advisor has a dangerous grudge against Esther's adoptive father. Caught in the middle of palace politics, Esther will find herself in an impossible position: risk her life or consign her people to annihilation.
