The Unexpected Heir
The titular character of The Unexpected Heir, Amanda Kaspen is the second child and only daughter of Lord Cormac Kaspen, formerly a privateer of some renown serving the kingdom of Lethbrand, and his late wife Maraflora. She is the younger sister of Narron Kaspen, sister-in-law to Lynine Sholt, and aunt to Oryn Kaspen. She is the stepdaughter of Deasta Lasten.
Following the events of the Prologue, Amanda finds herself the heir to the city-state of Kaspen, and is thrust unexpectedly into a political viper's den. In the midst of the tangled politics of the Bay of Prosperity and its surrounding lands, Amanda's choices will determine her future and that of Kaspen, and may have repercussions throughout Carthe and even beyond.
Even before her rise to political prominence, Amanda had a reputation as a beauty, with olive skin, dark hair, big brown eyes, and a curvaceous figure. She was also well known for her tomboyish ways and independent streak.
