Historical Fiction & Romance
I've always been a history buff. Sprawling historical epics are some of my favorite kinds of stories. That fact led to my deciding on history as my minor in college. As I looked through the list of history classes offered at Weber State University, I happened upon the History of Russia classes. I realized I knew next to nothing about Russian history and figured I might as well try the first one. If I didn't like it, I didn't have to take the others. Thanks to a professor who loved and knew the subject well (LaRae Larkin, who wrote the forward to book 1) I fell in love with Russian history. One of my favorite periods to learn about is the Middle Ages, and in Russian, that corresponded with Ivan. I was hooked.
Kremlins was the first full-length story I ever wrote, but the second one I published. I broke it into three books so that I wouldn't have to gloss over important historical events so much. And the rest...is history. ;D
As you can see, I write my historical under the pen name K.L. Conger. All I did to come up with that is switch my initials around (from L.K. to K.L) and use Conger, which is my mother's maiden name. Now both sides of my family are represented in my writing. Yea!
Citadels of Fire (Kremlins #1)
The maid who loved a soldier.
The soldier who defied a Tsar.
The Tsar who doomed a nation…
Inga is lucky to live the sheltered life of a maid in the Kremlin palace, but her plight is bleak at best. For Ivan the Terrible is the most notorious ruler ever to sit the throne of Russia.
When an English soldier comes to court, asking questions about his mother’s death years before, Inga is handed her first real chance at happiness. But can it endure?
Ivan tramples all in his path, leaving only death and blood in his wake. Taras asks too many questions, and his independent attitude frightens Inga. In Russia’s Imperial court, that kind of arrogance gets people killed.
Will Taras and Inga survive, or will they become unnoticed casualties of Tsars and Caesars, in a time period the world has forgotten?
Find out now! Because everyone loves a doomed love affair in the midst of violence and intrigue.
