New Releases: Pendyffryn: The Conquerors
Salvation, Book 2
"The only woman he had ever loved, the one woman he could never have." When I began to write this series, I realized within a few chapters of Invasion, that Christophe Maides was a hero in his own right and deserved my rapted attention.
Born to the slave of a mercenary in a barbarous country beyond Bysantium, Christophe has known only war and destruction. He has never loved or been loved.
Caryl Gernant, like her cousin, Gwennan Pendyffryn, is a valuable asset to her husband and her uncle. She becomes a priceless treasure to the man her uncle sends to secure her home. Trusting no one, Caryl conceals her identity to protect her son, prepared to pay any price the foreign mercenary asks.
Salvation is now available at All Romance ebooks, Smashwords, on the Apple iBookstore, OmniLit and Amazon soon at Kobo, Sony, Diesel.
I'm very proud to say that Salvation is already a top selling book at All Romance ebooks and their affiliated site, OmniLit, in a matter of a few days!
Invasion, Book 1
This series marks the beginning of my writing about Wales. It grew from a fascination and sudden, deep connection with a culture and language I had never known to exist but discovered one blistering, dry summer as I wandered in ruins and recognized a strength of will to survive that few of its neighbors can claim. When I first began to write this series, I was mesmerized by a sense of mistaken romanticism that had, in fact, no relation to the historical 'reality' of Wales. These books are a celebration of the spirit to survive and withstand, against overwhelming and formidable odds; to resist enemies until they surrender to your superior strengths of courage and determination.
Invasion is available at All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, Apple iBookstore and other major online booksellers: Kobo, Sony, Diesel. Soon at Amazon.
Traitor's Daughter, Book 1
An historical romance set in 10th Century Wales during the reign of Hywel Dda, the Lawmaker: like all families, Heledd Bannawg's has its feuds. Condemned to bond servitude and forbidden to wed, Heledd's worst nightmare becomes her only hope. Traitor's Daughter was the first historical romance I completed. By the time I began to write this book, I had lived in Wales for several years. The story is set five decades after Pendyffryn: The Conquerors, at a time when treaties between Wessex and Hywel Dda had stemmed the tide of blood, violence and disruption. Traitor's Daughter is also available at All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, Apple iBookstore and major online booksellers: Kobo, Sony, Diesel, Versent.
Thank you to everyone who has read and commented on the first chapter of Traitor's Daughter. Your thoughtful generosity is much appreciated.
Here are a few of the comments I've received about this book:
"I like the premise of the story and the setting a lot. It's not an era that's been done a lot, so that's a good thing. I like how manipulative Alys is."
" Well researched and written."
" And now you have left me hanging, you temptress! "
" I loved your characters."
"I enjoyed reading this awesome book." read more...
