My new historical novel, Dark Deceit, has a release date: Friday, 10th February 2012! So excited! ;-)
In the final editing stages, just going through with a fine tooth comb, then it'll be ready. It's going to be released through Crooked Cat Publishing - check out my Author Page!
I just love the cover! So dark, so forbidding. Laurence, who designed the cover, has caught the right atmosphere, just what I wanted to portray.
Dark Deceit, the first in The Anarchy Trilogy, is going to be available on Amazon, Smashwords, B&N and other electronic retailers.
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.
