About the Author
Born in Wilmington Delaware, and raised mostly in Baton Rouge Louisiana and Baytown Texas, I had a southern childhood of climbing trees that were always either full of spanish moss or pecans. But what I liked most was reading. Books were always magical to me. When I was six, I made a little booth with a card table, like a lemonade-stand. But instead of drinks, I sold books I created. I wrote them in pencil on ruled paper, drew the illustrations and cover art with crayons and stapled them together. I started out a 5¢ a book, but it was only when I lowered the price down to free a little boy in my class came by on his bicycle and took them all.
From that day on, I never stopped writing for fun, but I veered off from professional writing due to the responsibilities and time restraints of a single mom. That was until I was introduced through books, to the woman who became my favorite historical character, Boudica. The Celtic Warrior Queen made me start writing professionally. I love history and in reading a book about the dark ages, I came across the rebel queen. She inspired me so much, I started jotting down notes, but they were fiction, visions of me involved in the Boudica revolt. Before I knew it, I had accidentally written a rough draft for a novel. And I've been writing books on purpose ever since. Drawing on my love of a happy ending I have currently penned over 30 published romance books under my name, Cornelia Amiri, and my pen name of Maeve Alpin.

Mabon has never been in love. He has always been King Arthur's champion, with all that has entailed. It has left no time for love or family life. But when he looks at Nesta he wonders if he might not have a chance for personal happiness after all.
They need to deal with her family helping, and hindering them. As well they will fight the Saxons by King Arthur's side. If they can overcome these they might just have a chance at a future together.
The Vixen Princess was a book I enjoyed reading. Ms. Amiri weaves a compelling and intriguing tale of two people who don't realize they are truly meant to be together. The fight scenes were drawn to just the right degree to play a part in the story, yet not overwhelm it and detract from the love story itself. The interfering family was just the right touch of humor to keep The Vixen Princess interesting.

Nesta, the Princess of Tauton, is still mourning the loss of her husband Gwydion, who died two years before. She is tired of the suitors that are pursuing her. None can hold a candle to Gwydion. Nesta feels that the best way to purge herself of her grief is to fight alongside a young King Arthur in his battles against the Saxons. When he comes to visit, she decides to let him know her wishes. At this time, King Arthur is still a teen, but his first in command is Mabon, who has plenty of worldliness and experience. Mabon has no desire for a relationship with any woman. He also considers Nesta to be too high born for him
In spite of themselves, Nesta and Mabon are instantly drawn to each other. Mabon is a good man, but not a romantic sort. He needs help in wooing Nesta. He gets the help he needs in the form of the ghost of Gwydion. Mabon is not too thrilled to be haunted by a ghost. Gwydion wants Nesta happy so that she can let go of her grief and move on with her life. He thinks that Mabon will be perfect for her. While Mabon gets the help that he needs, he also gets interference from Gwydion that he does not need, especially when he tries to seduce Nesta. Gwydion wants them married first!
I loved this tale. It is by far one of the best Celtic historical romances that I have ever read. The author, Cornelia Amiri, brings this time period to life. She makes the setting come alive and seem real. The humorous elements that she adds to the story further enrich it and make it one book that is very hard to put down. If you belong to a woman's readers group, you must have "The Vixen Princess" on your list! I look forward to reading other books written by Ms. Amiri.
