I actually picked up this book a long, long time ago, when it was still published by The Wild Rose Press. When Suzanne told me she’d republished it I had to (sheepishly) tell her it was still on my TBR pile. yes, bad friend that I am, I had been remiss in reading everything of hers the second I bought it. (In my defense I was deep into the first draft of part two in Harshad Wars. ) Anyway, I replaced the old version of COW (as we’ve come to affectionately call it) with the new one and finally got off my duff and read it. I’m glad I did. Loved Samantha, loved Wills….Well, you’ll see.

(my review copy procured from Amazon)
In best selling romance author S. G. Rogers latest fantasy romance, CLASH OF WILLS, young Prince Julian confesses to being a wizard who is thrown out of his home, leaving his sister, Samantha (Sam), to pick up the pieces. Years later, he sends her one clue only: a compass and a letter to visit him in the Unchartered Lands. Her father only wants her to make a good marriage, one that will benefit the kingdom of Paloran, a marriage that is vital now that Julian has been disowned. But she wants nothing more than to follow her brother. So she tries a charade to get out of meeting Prince Wills of Insolitia, the man to whom her family hopes to betroth her, only to find he is hiding out from her too.

I don’t think Suzanne has any other stories planned in this world but, I really enjoyed this story. Suzanne, if you’re reading, a little earworm for you….What happens next!?!?
