My newest book, Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 6: Martyr, releases on April 26th!
To celebrate, I decided to post an extended excerpt. I can only post less than 10% (because of Amazon’s policies) so the excerpt ends in the middle of chapter three.
Here’s the back cover description:A Christian Historical Adventure set in Regency England with slow-burn romance and a supernatural twist
Part six in an epic-length serial novel
Lady Wynwood has discovered the gardening notebooks belonging to Bianca Jadis, the deceased mistress of the late Lord Wynwood and a former member of the treasonous group, the Citadel. However, the team is dismayed to discover that parts of the notebooks have been written in some sort of code.
Mr. Sol Drydale has kept hidden the fact that the notebooks have been found because he is unable to fully trust his superior officers at the Ramparts, the secret branch of the Alien Office. After all, when one of his own was kidnapped, the men who should have assisted him had seemed more interested in obtaining the Root potion that gives men supernatural strength.
But then two Ramparts agents bring information about an opportunity to capture the poisoner Apothecary Jack, one of the members of the Citadel. Sol is ordered to integrate these newcomers into his group, then plan a daring raid upon Jack’s new laboratory.
When things take an unexpected turn, Sol is faced with a terrible choice. Will he disobey orders, or will he forfeit the life of someone he holds dear?
PLEASE NOTE: Like the novels published in Jane Austen’s time, this is a novel in multiple parts. Each volume has a completed story arc, but this is NOT a stand-alone novel and the story continues in volume 7.
I’ll be posting the excerpt in four separate blog posts.
I’m currently writing book 7. A lot happened in book 6, so there’s lots to unpack in the beginning of the book, and lots I have plan to happen. I’m excited about writing the manuscript!
Below are the links to the parts of the excerpt of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 6: Martyr. (I created the html links by hand so please let me know if any of them are dead links.) Enjoy!Prologue
