The Executioner's Heart, a speculative romance by Theresa Flynn

Recommended Posts

What happens when your vocation as an Executioner keeps you from finding love?  Finding happiness while lopping off heads sends this unusual woman into a partnership she never saw coming.  This is a 79,000 word Speculative Romance. 

Maigrede is proud to follow in her family’s footsteps to act as the Executioner, but it is forbidden for women to perform the task so she must keep her identity a secret.  One day, she arrives at her hidden home to discover Philip, an injured nobleman.  Against her instinctual need for isolation she finds herself falling in love with him.  All is well until he discovers the truth about her job.  Forced to make a choice between her heart and her duty she chooses her life’s work and loses the man.  Left alone and with child she breaks her code to rescue a woman she is supposed to execute.  The woman becomes a friend, helpmate, and then lover.  Together, they raise Maigrede’s child and build a family until war enters their balanced existence.  Once again, Maigrede faces choices which seem impossible.  She struggles to understand her role in a fractured land.

Comps include:  Sistersong by Lucy Holland and The Princess and the Odium by Sam Ledel
