To celebrate the release of The King & His Queen in February, I’m giving away five ARCs (advanced reading copies) to five lucky readers. Leave a message in the comment box and you’ll be entered to win an e-book of The King & His Queen just before it’s released.



A brief excerpt of The King & His Queen

With sure and steady steps, Hemera made her way toward the stronghold gate. She stopped suddenly when the guards frantically began waving their hands for people to move aside, clearing the gate entrance. One guard waved quite forcefully at her and hearing horses’ hooves behind her, she quickly obeyed.

It could be only one person who demanded such attention—the King.

Hemera turned to see him bearing down on the stronghold and he was a sight to behold. He looked as though he was riding into battle rather than returning home. A deep scowl attempted to mar his fine features, but failed. His perpetual glare added a look of assured power. He was to be obeyed or else. His body, lean, though strong with muscle, exuded even more power. She had heard talk that he could snap a man’s neck with little effort and swing a sword with even less effort. She wondered if it was more myth than truth. His dark garments added to the mystery surrounding him, making him appear more sinful than righteous.

She wondered if he was truly either.

At this moment, though, she believed sinful was the correct choice.

His black stallion pounded the earth and the King leaned lower over his horse and to the side as he drew closer to her and when his arm shot out, she realized too late his intention.

His coiled arm snagged her around the waist, the strength of it rushing the breath from her and sending the armful of sticks she held flying.

I thought I would try to read one of your 800 are more page books since I was running out of the short ones, The Irish devil!! OMG I was hooked, it could be 250 pages are 1250 pages I would read it and still want more! I simply love your books. Thanks! and keep them coming…

  24. I cannot wait! The last story was good but the entire time I was consumed with what would happen between the King and his “Queen”…. I can’t wait no matter what.

  25. I’m anxiously awaiting the release of this book. I just finished reading the first two books in this trilogy during my Christmas vacation and it left me wanting more. I love the series so far. You are one of my favorite authors. My all time favorite of your books is the Irish Devil with Dawn and Cree next on that list.

When I got book 2,I thought I had died and gone to heaven –could not put it down and didn’t get to bed until 4:30 in the morning –boy was my butt dragging the next day but it was worth it!! Thanks for being such a great author.

  29. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading any of your work. Would like to be given the opportunity with one of your ARCs. I’m partial to historical romance, in particular anything to do with Scots.

  30. I was hooked once I read “The Executioner.” The series is fast paced, with interesting, strong characters. If you haven’t read the first two, set time aside because you will not want to put them down. I cannot wait to read the King & His Queen.

    Every snippet had me hooked and wanting more.
    Nothing better than a great book when it is so cold outside.

  34. Very excited for the 3rd book in this series. Your books are what started me reading scottish historical romance. The first series I read was the Sinclare Brothers and I was hooked. Once I read Irish devil & Love me forever I knew I was lost. I can always read your books over and over and still get that pull towards the characters. Thank you for your amazing works, without them I might not have had the joy of reading all the other Scottish historical authors I have come across since being pulled in by your works.

  35. This series has always left me waiting for more..I’m so excited to read about the King. He has always been a character that was in the forefront, yet a mystery that seemed he was untouchable, yet very human & SEXY!!

  54. I haven’t read any of the pict king books, but have many of your others. I must say that my favorite to read about is Dawn & creed. I have read those books at least 4 times each. So if the pict king books are anything like those I would love to read them.

  55. I loved “The King’s Executioner” and am anxiously awaiting its sequels! Thanks for many hours of entertainment, you’re one of my very favorite authors, especially of this genre. More, please!!!

  56. Donna’s Heroines are the best!!! They are real women with all the realistic foibles of real human beings. The Heros are Damn lucky to have them in their lives and they know it! Since I picked up my first Donn Fletcher book last year, I have eagerly devoured every book of hers I could find. Never disappointed! I’m also very excited to read 3rd installment of Pict series (first two were excellent as per usual) because I know that it won’t disappoint either!!Also keep those Dawn and Creed stories coming!!!

  57. I’m looking forward to this book. I’m in the process of rereading the previous 2 books in preparing for this one.. And I look forward to many more of your books..

  60. Dear Donna,
    Your books allow me the opportunity to escape to a life I can only dream about. Your style of writing as well as your imagination opens up a world that I cannot tear myself away from. I actively try and sneak away to read a page or two whenever I can, I just can’t stop! Thank you for all that you do, and everything that you will inevitably do in the future. Whatever it is that you do though, please do not ever stop writing.
    Thank you.

  61. OMG!! I’m so excited. Every time a new release is coming out I get so excited I can barley sleep and can’t stop talking about it. My husband just rolls his eyes at me – LOL. It would be so amazing to win this but either way I definitely ready it!!!

  62. I love this book and I am so lucky and happy I found the Pict King’s series because these books reminded me why I love reading so very much 🙂

  63. I would love to read this book. I live in Scotland and if I look out of the window I can see the site of a Pictish fort.

  64. You have officially ruined me for others. I find myself comparing the quality of your books with that of other writers and they just don’t come up to scratch. So. As I sit here reading other books I have found myself thinking I can’t wait until February for the king and his queen to come out. I wish you could clone yourself and finish all your projects because I would take vacation just to read them all. You are awesome and I truly appreciate your work.

  65. I left a review on Amazon for the first book.
    I am going to start the second and will leave a review for that one too.
    I look forward to the third in the series “the Kings queen” and a ARC would be greatly appreciated!

    • Bev, I really appreciate the reviews. They are so very helpful to an author. Since you are already doing reviews on my books, you might want to think about joining my ARC (advanced reading copy) team. You would receive an ARC just before a new book of mine is to be released and in exchange you would leave an honest review. If you’re interested send an email to donna@donnafletcher.com and mention I told you about the ARC Team. My ARC Coordinator, Mary R. would then get in touch you.

      • I can’t wait for this book to be out to find out what happened. Donna Fletcher does a excellent job on her story they keep you there till the end.

  66. I can’t wait for this to come out and read their story. I have re-read books 1 and 2 about three times!!!!!! I love these storistories.

  67. I’ve been waiting since reading The King’s Warrior for this book and the anticipation is just about killing me. Can’t wait!

  68. I’m loving this series! I wish you would do them in audiobook also, as I love to listen to a book after I’ve read them! Keep up the great writing. 🙂

  69. WOW! I can’t wait to read this one. King Talon needs his queen and his story, needs to be told. This has need an awesome series.

  71. Can’t wait to read King Talon’s story. Love all your books. I reread them every few months. Would love an ARC. I am not a patient person where new books from a favorite author are concerned. Thank you for writing such wonderful books.

  72. I cannot wait for this book to come out. Winning would be nice but if I could buy the book now, that would be a better win for me!

  73. Donna

    Your historical romances have been my world adventures for years. Thank you.
    Through your writings I can be the woman my inner spirit knows I am. I enjoy the Pict series and look forward to “The King and His Queen”

From my heart to yours, hope you have had as much pleasure in writing it as I’ve had in reading the series. Keep them coming

  79. If this book is even half as good as the first two I see another late night or ever another all nighter can not wait.
