by Sherwood Smith

When Sasha is taken to another world by a wicked King, Sun goes after, because nobody messes with mom! A romantic fantasy set in the same world as Crown Duel.

First published as two books—Once a Princess and Twice a Prince—this romantic fantasy has been revised and published as one book. It is set in the same world as Crown Duel, to which Sasha’s mother, Sun, was once swept away by a real prince.

But not to happily ever after. Her prince vanished, and a wicked king took the throne. Since then, Sasha and Sun have been hiding on Earth, both training in martial arts until Sasha is tricked into going back to Khanerenth.

She’s more than ready to kick some bad-guy butt, but is the stylish pirate Zathdar the bad guy? Or artistic, dreamy Prince Jehan, son of the wicked king?

Meanwhile Sun is determined to cross worlds to save her daughter. She might not have been a very good princess, but nobody messes with Mom!

Originally published by Samhain Publishing (2009)


“Warning: This title contains a kick-butt mother-daughter team, a wicked king, a witty pirate with an unfortunate taste for neon colors, inept resistance fighters, a dreamy prince who gallops hither and yon, and a kick-butt princess-in-waiting.” —Valerie’s Reviews

BVC Announces Sasharia en Garde by Sherwood Smith — 2 Comments

  1. I got the two books when they first came out and my wife and I really enjoyed them!

  2. I searched the web for authors truly comparable to Georgette Heyer, and found only one link! A commentary by Sherwood Smith, with lots of follow-up comments that were interesting as well, here, at this site. I couldn’t find a way to comment myself.

    I’ve searched for this before. I know there isn’t anyone comparable. Of course I’ve done Austen and others, and love (mainly Austen’s) work dearly, but this is an entirely different genre. It’s romance, for heaven’s sake!!! But at least it’s well-researched and well-written romance, with so much attention to detail that it, in my opinion, becomes art.

    I want to know if Sherwood still has any interest in that post from 2010. I am an eternal fan of Georgette Heyer, with full understanding of all her flaws and prejudices, and the problems within her works. Yet I still find great joy in rereading her every few years. I think she was tremendous at creating a safe little world of escape. None of her imitators came close, and I stopped hoping and reading them 30 years ago.

    I’d love to talk with others who’ve read her seriously. I’m an online reading teacher for kids who fail to learn to read to school, and I KNOW the importance of falling in love with a world in someone’s books. It’s what I dream of for all my students.

    Now that I’m 62, and not well, I’d love to find a few folks who love Heyer too, . I want a few folks to chat with who may have been enchanted by her stories and her humor as I was. Especially since I’m about to start my rereading! 😉

    I love many genres, but this tiny niche has been the hardest one to find friends in. Now that I’m losing my vision, I really do hope to find some kindred spirits.

    And that, of course, is straight from “Anne of Green Gables!” 😉

    Thank you,
