Traitor or savior…or something far more devastating?
William Townsend, Lord Latymer, lost the woman he loved because of his greed and his ultimate deception of two powerful countries. Now, he must protect his nine-year-old son from the same fate. Latymer has only one chance to escape his enemies—board a ship that would carry them both to America and a new life. But first he must find his missing son, elude a vengeful grieving brother, and kill a beautiful French assassin. Time is slipping through his fingers and Latymer has twelve hours before his ship and his future sail away.
I wrote Latymer for my readers, and my readers alone. As sometimes happens in the traditional publishing world, a series can come to an unexpected halt. The reasons are many, but, with my Nexus series, I got a new editor while writing A Lady's Secret Weapon (Book 3). Lovely person, but she didn't love my dark historicals. Something I realized only after the manuscript went to production. A manuscript written with the belief there would be a Book 4 and 5. *Sigh*
The good news? Self-publishing has allowed me to tie up those nasty loose ends and give fans of my Nexus series a satisfying conclusion to the series.
