Praise for REALM

"A riveting saga of a novel, author Alexandrea Weis' "Realm" is deftly written and thoroughly entertaining read from cover to cover. This is the stuff of which block-buster movies are made! While certain to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to any community library's Historical Fiction collection." Midwest Book Review

"Weis has skillfully written an engaging historical tale with elements of steamy romance about Roxana's impact on Alexander's legacy." Historical Novel Society

"An intriguing love story set in extraordinary times. Weis creates a compelling work of fiction inspired by the unique relationship between Alexander the Great and his Persian wife." Book Trib


Based on a true story.

When her homeland is conquered by the mighty Alexander the Great, Roxana—the daughter of a mere chieftain—is torn from her simple life and thrown into a world of war and intrigue.

Terrified, the sixteen-year-old girl of renowned beauty is brought before the greatest ruler the world has ever known. Her life is in his hands; her future his to decide.

Without formal education or noble blood, Roxana is chosen by the Greek conqueror to be his bride. Soon she comes to know profound happiness and unyielding desire in her warrior’s arms.

   

However, being the king’s consort comes at a heavy price. To survive her husband’s treacherous kingdom, she must endure continuous warfare, deadly plots, jealous rivals, victory-hungry generals, and the stigma of being a barbarian. Persian blood will keep her from claiming the grandest title of all—queen—but her reign will seal the fate of an empire.

History tells his story. This is hers.

  7. Once...many decades ago, I was a little girl. We were poor, but always had a nice Christmas. Well, that is, until the year my baby sis (3 at the time) decided ALL the presents were hers, and proceeded to unwrap EVERY PRESENT UNDER THE TREE on Christmas Eve! Needless to say, the wrapping paper that year got rather "creative"....

  20. Many years back when my daughter was "somewhat a believer" in Santa, we proceeded with our family traditions in full force. On Christmas Eve, per tradition, we put out Santa's cookies. We had some Christmas music going and just had the whole shebang. It was awesome.
