Cover Reveal for Of Sword and Shadow

This week I was able to reveal the cover for my February 2021 release, Of Sword and Shadow. It was also the first week of online school for my kids, so I’m a few days late with this blog post, but here it is now with the official blurb. (Small elements of the cover and the synopsis might change between now and the final version.)


Of Sword and Shadow_Cover copyGreece, 1379

She is known by many names, none of them her own. In truth, she is an unnamed slave, nothing more than a weapon in the hands of her owner in his attempts to provoke political mayhem. When she encounters a handsome young man while on an assignment, she thinks little of him—until he attempts to take what she has stolen. But in her line of work, failure is not an option.

Gillen is intrigued by the mysterious woman who thwarts his mission. But when his path crosses hers again, his intrigue turns to gratitude as the thief he comes to call Eudocia saves his life. The two form a bond of friendship and join forces to wrest control from a group of ruthless rulers. But as their camaraderie blossoms into something more, Gillen and Eudocia must fight for love even as they wage war for a better future.


I’m thrilled for this book’s release! It will be available in paperback, ebook, and audiobook formats. You can add it to your Goodreads shelf here.

    1. Thanks, Charissa! I’m kind of excited for this one because of the unique history (among other reasons). There are lots of books set during WWII or WWI, but I’ve never seen another novel set in the Duchy of Athens.
