Aliya is a medical school graduate gifted with both smarts and an athletic body. Her life seems perfect…until she finds herself in a fatal car accident. Instead of dying, however, she wakes up in a completely different body in the middle of a half-ruined castle during alternate medieval times. Confused and dismayed, Aliya realizes she was given a second chance in life — so she rolls up her sleeves and gets to work on restoring the castle and her new life.


Aliya’s situation is confusing and challenging. Reborn as Countess Lilian Earton, she has to adjust to an unfamiliar world while trying to introduce everyday conveniences from the world she knows. Her first goal is taking care of the collapsing estate of Earton and its inhabitants — and learning to navigate a society unused to a woman in charge. Constant attacks of robbers and slave traders never seem to stop plaguing Aliya, and killers and spies sent by the narcissistic aristocracy are just waiting for her to show a bit of weakness so that they can strike, even if as she finds an alternative solution to her troubles, developing alliances with the Highlanders and Vikings called the Virmans. In the meantime, she is terrified with the prospect of finally meeting her perpetually absent husband whom, incidentally, Aliya has never seen ever since her rebirth as Lilian.

Her plan is to make the best of her unusual circumstances — and to change this alternate world for the better. She is not a girl in trouble waiting for a knight in shining armor; all that Aliya has to do, she’ll do with her own hands.

***

First Lessons is the opening book of the bestselling historical romance and time travel fantasy series A Medieval Tale by Lina J. Potter. The heroine finds herself in the alternate world at the very beginning of a thorny path to progress and happiness. On top of everything, she has to go up against the unprogressive and sexist society of the Middle Ages, armed only with her knowledge, experience, and willpower. Still, Aliya/Lilian has to act carefully in order not to draw too much attention to her innovations — she knows she could either get praised for her genius…or be accused of witchcraft.

A Note From the Publisher

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Lina J. Potter has been dreaming up stories for as long as she can remember. She started putting her tales on paper when she was around ten years old, and, according to her own words, continued happily scribbling ever since: “Call it inspiration, the voice of a Muse, or plain obsession… but I felt I had to write it down or else my brain would explode with all these characters longing to come alive”. However, Lina did not feel ready to share her writing with the world until recently, when in 2011 she submitted an extract from her historical fantasy novel, I am Sophia, to an online magazine. Immediately after, Lina J. Potter was approached by e-talent scouts representing publishers and other literary companies. Since then, there was no looking back for Lina J. Potter, who quickly turned into one of the most published and widely talked- about (yet least public!) romantic fantasy authors in the country. Her impressive publications list speaks for itself, and we are thrilled to announce that her first few bestsellers are now available in English. Nowadays Lina J. Potter lives in the town of Tambov with her husband, daughter and two cats. She has a lot of hobbies, from doing karate to lace-making, but she avoids personal publicity and shies away from the literary limelight, preferring her quiet life to focus on writing. She has a lighthearted approach to writing, but is happy to share with her readers a few simple truths she lives by: “Never take what you’ve got for granted. Enjoy every day of your life. Keep smiling no matter what.”
