Order of Succession

A Royal Duty Book

The planet of Chelyana is a tropical paradise. Eighty-five percent of its surface is water spotted with a scattering of islands offering sandy beaches, lush foliage, and luxury resorts. When Chelyana is invaded by an insect race determined to devour the planet, Kaelyn discovers the fate of her people lies in her hands. Racing across the galaxy in a small starfighter, Kaelyn desperately tries to reach the only man powerful enough to save her planet: her fiancé, Chord. With mysterious warriors close on her heels, Kaelyn is forced to rely on a young pilot. Lt. Rein Colton, a recent graduate of the Star Force Academy, vows to protect her. There's only one problem: Rein is the love of her life....


This is a unique story with star battles, romance, and an underlying mystery. The characters are well developed and easily draw you into not only their story but the evolution of the plot.--Goodreads reviewer

About Alaina Stanford

Alaina lives a stone's throw from the Mississippi River in Missouri. Her first story was published in the local newspaper at age 6. She hasn't stopped writing since.

As the mother of seven children, she loved to play video games with her kids. One day it occurred to her to write an adventure that flowed like a video game. She added a touch of romance and Hypnotic Journey was born.

The Fantasy Romance- HJ characters are like a family to Alaina. They are foolish, daring, resourceful and full of passion not only for life but for the friendships they have created in this world and the next.

Alaina's been a Trekkie all her life, so her next series was Science Fiction. The Treborel Series is a paranormal adventure featuring two best friends as the heroes fighting to find the women they love and survive the chaos of a continental conflict while being stalked by a psychotic villain determined to destroy them.

Archangel is a pre-apocalyptic series about angels fighting against the rising evil in a desperate attempt to keep humanity alive long enough to reach the end of days.

Royal Duty is a new type of series. Each book is a different genre- Science Fiction, Historical Romance, Fantasy, etc. They all share a central theme of a royal heir struggling against their obligations to the throne.

In the end, Alaina writes about how friendship and love can be the only thing keeping you alive long enough to defeat your demons. You will find Alaina's stories exciting and steamy, but she's not an erotic author. Her characters still fall in love and have sex, it's just not that obvious.
