Sneak Peek at Dark Deceit - over at Historical Fiction Excerpts

I hope you've all had wonderful holidays. We've been lazy over the last few days after our hectic trip up north to the outlaws last week. More about that trip soon...

For now, please join me as I post a preview of my upcoming release, Dark Deceit, over at Historical Fiction Excerpts! I should have an exact release date soon. Whoot!

Here's the blurb:

On his return from battle at Lincoln, Geoffrey de Mortagne, undersheriff of Gloucester and spy for the Empress Matilda, assists a dying knight caught in an ambush. Promising to look after the welfare of the knight’s only daughter, Geoffrey stays at her manor while he investigates the murder. Keen to join the Empress on her progress through England, he is torn between his oath and his duty. 

Left to defend her manor following her father’s death, Alleyne de Bellac at first accepts Geoffrey’s support. As she doesn’t trust the taciturn stranger, she asks Will d’Arques, an old friend, for help. But loyalties change. Her life in danger and her inheritance at stake, Alleyne must decide which man to trust. 

Discover England and Normandy divided by a brutal civil war, where vows are broken as allegiances waver.

See you over there! :-)


  1. Hello, I'm a fan - I loved 'Highland Arms' (Reviewed it on Booked Up) and I'm very much looking forward to reading this wonderful trilogy - I love that dark period with all that uncertainty and that constant danger.
    I wish you A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 , good health and lot of love !!

  2. Hello Black Tulip,

    Thanks so much for your kind comments. Loved your wonderful review. Dark Deceit is quite different from Highland Arms but I hope you'll enjoy it too.
    Happy New Year to you! :-)
