Welcome to the official website of the Emma award-winning, Debut Author of the Year, Chanta Jefferson Rand. I'm a best-selling Amazon author who writes about strong Alpha heroes and tough, sassy heroines. I love bringing my characters to life through contemporary and historical romance. Whether you're reading one of my ancient Egyptian love stories, or one of my contemporary erotic romances, you're sure to find witty dialogue and steamy sex scenes.
Excerpts from all of my novels are available on the BOOKS page on this site. Feel free to sit back, relax, and let me take you on a journey.
A dead husband. An unconsummated marriage. She needs an heir. Any man will do.
1061 AD. A sprawling empire rich in gold, resources, and military might dominates West Africa. It’s The Kingdom of Ghana, and it’s at the height of its power.
In order to save her younger sister from their step-brother’s clutches, twenty-year old Nabeela agrees to marry a repulsive African prince and bear him an heir. However, her plans are waylaid when tragedy strikes on her wedding night—her new husband dies—without consummating their marriage.
She must find a replacement to impregnate her immediately. Any man will do—including a drunken soldier her servants find naked taking a bath in a neighboring village. Nabeela holds him captive and coerces him into having sex with her—stealing the one thing he can never get back—his seed.
What she doesn’t know is the soldier is Rafan, Commander of a warring tribe’s royal army, and one of her family’s archenemies. Eager for revenge, Rafan tracks her down once he’s released. But when these two reunite, they realize their lust for each other is far greater than their disdain.
Even though they share a commitment to unite, there are others who are determined to destroy them and their plans, including the one person Nabeela would have never suspected. In the end, she’s is forced to choose between her passion and her ambition.
