My secret could save my people. It will also destroy my life.

I was born female, but I’ve been secretly living as a boy for years in my adoptive village of Draebard, doing a job the elders insist can only be done by a male. The last thing I needed was to fall for not one, but two unattainable men—a fierce warrior and a reluctant wolf-shifter with a horrific past. Now, the Alyrion Empire is poised to invade, and I must choose whether to keep my secret or reveal it—not only to the men I love, but also to the powerful female ruler whose army could help protect Draebard during the coming war.

Perfect for open-minded fans of ménage and reverse harem romance, The Horse Mistress: Book 1 by USA Today bestselling author R. A. Steffan combines detailed world-building, and a heartfelt romance between three noble, damaged people who have no one to turn to but each other.

Author’s note: This book contains sex. The sex is not vanilla. Some of it is between two men who love each other. If any of those three facts made you go “Eww,” please do the author a solid and don’t download this book.


Editorial reviews:

“Lovely, explicit, and intense… There’s powerful meaning in this tale. It’s challenging in all the right ways, and quite a story, too. Five Stars.” -Inked Rainbow Reads

“An utterly captivating heroic fantasy story on its own, with some real drama and tension in the plotting, populated by bisexual lovers, eunuchs, and a gender-swapped heroine. Some stories you breeze through to get to the end, and some you linger with, reluctant to say goodbye. This was definitely one of the latter.” -2016 Rainbow Awards

“A gender-bending fantasy epic full of passion!” -BookBub

USA Today bestselling author R. A. Steffan lives in a very boring (but pretty) part of flyover country in the Midwestern US. When she’s not busy writing stories about people loving each other in all sorts of different and interesting ways, she can be found taking care of her small menagerie of critters.

A rebel to the core, she is currently sticking it to the man by illegally harboring ducks within the city limits, where only chickens are allowed. This fearless disregard for societal norms extends to her writing, as well. There, you will find polyamory along with straight, gay, bisexual, and non-gender conforming love of all flavors. You will also find families of choice, profound friendships, adventure, danger, and good triumphing over evil.

That, and sex. Lots of sex. Most of which is not the vanilla variety.
