I’m proud to announce the release of the second book in my Tudor Throne series, The Welsh Gambit! Due to an Amazon delay, it took the Paperback a little longer to go “live” than the Kindle file, but both of them are now available!
This book follows some of the memorable characters from the first novel, The Usurper’s Throne, into Wales for the Welsh Tourney.
Margaret Pole is on her way back from London, with the banker Grimaldi’s threats ringing in her ears — pay up, or he’ll tell her husband, Sir Richard, the truth about her debts.
The Duke of Buckingham, Edward Stafford, wants to increase his personal army, even though King Henry has expressly forbade it — and hopes the tourney will provide cover for him.
Lady Tyrell struggles to keep her head above water when the ruthless Sir Thomas Lovell places her estate under an attainder, and discovers her lord steward may be a traitor.
Lady Anwen is in recovery from the months of abuse she endured as Lord Meuric’s prisoner, after the murder of his son. But she’s forced to face her abusers each day, since his overseer, Beynon, challenges her at every turn.
They all come together for a joust that escalates into a murder, a witch-hunt, and a desperate search for a child, against a backdrop of ghosts, unresolved resentment, and life-altering circumstances.
I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
