Dark Heart Picked Up By Dragonblade Publishing

 In Being An Author, News

It’s been a long haul and given me a lot of sleepless nights and dip in confidence, but I’m delighted to announce that Dark Heart, my Roman-era romantic suspense has been picked up by Dragonblade Publishing.

Dragonblade Publishing specialises in historical romance and boy, does it have some stellar names including New York Times and USA Today Best Sellers.

I’m so delighted to be working with a publisher with such a track record with historical romance.

So… what is Dark Heart all about?

Here’s the blurb:

Rome, 235AD

A series of ritual murders of young boys recalls memories of Rome’s most wicked Emperor. Magistrate Marcus Cornelius Drusus has discovered the cult extends to the very heart of Roman society.

Despite his personal wealth and authority, Marcus is a slave to his past – conflicted by his status as an adopted son, bitterly betrayed by his wife and forced to give up his child.

Kyna knows all about betrayal. Sold into slavery by her husband to pay a gambling debt, she found herself in Rome, far from her home in Britannia. Bought by a doctor, she is taught his trade and is about to gain her freedom when her mentor is murdered by the cult.

When the same group make an attempt on her life, Kyna is forced to give up her freedom and accept Marcus’s protection. With no one to trust but each other, mutual attraction ignites into passion but how far will Marcus go for vengeance when he learns the cult’s next victim is his son?

Can the woman who is free in her heart heal the man who is a slave in his?

I’ll keep you up to date with the date!
