and murderous Rome, a city that can claim its victims in an instant and give its chosen ones glory at a moment's notice. After
confronting his nemesis and former commander, Anicius Pedius Gallus, in the boisterous Roman forum, Marcellus escapes yet
another close call with a "Roman ally," and races home to the object of his desire-Elyene, a feisty, British-Celtic
princess. And one that is none too happy about being a royal hostage. But love counters betrayal in this
harsh city, and the two are married against a backdrop of mysterious treacheries and secrecies. Even as the two start a family
and Marcellus advances through the ranks, the evil Gallus seems to lurk in the shadows around every corner.

From the birth of Christianity to backstabbing in the Senate,
to lives of the slave and commoner, to the behind-the-scenes of the world of the Roman emperors, The Peacekeeper will bring the duplicitous, colorful, and raw streets of Rome to brilliant life, and will leave
you breathless until the final page.

Britannia Romanus Series,
Books II and III
When a young Celtic prince, desperate to prove himself to his father, is forced to gather every ounce of strength
and courage to fight an enemy more cunning and powerful than either he or Britain has ever faced, will he be able to save
his family, his sacred homeland, and his imperial legacy−or will his own head be among the next spoils of war?
The Wolf of Britannia,
is a breathtaking historical novel of action and suspense set in the years between 27 and 60 A.D., in the mysterious land
of ancient Britain and the majestic palaces of Rome. In the first millennium's early days, the Romans held power over most
of the world's people through disciplined savagery, yet many citizens fought to break from tyranny. This painstaking researched
tale is one such fight for freedom.
In the wilds of Britain, the soon-to-be legendary Prince Caratacus and his tribe
of warriors are facing down the seemingly unbeatable Roman army.
After winning the southern British
throne, Caratacus leads his people as they strive for freedom from the iron-fisted Roman rule that has nearly obliterated
their culture and lifestyle. As the prince fights alongside his wife, a warrior princess who takes no prisoners, Caratacus
must also outsmart a duplicitous brother determined to take the throne, battle his beautiful, conniving, and lascivious cousin−a queen who wants Caratacus for herself−and keep his people free. Action-paced
and steeped in ancient historical characters, The Wolf of Britannia is the story of one courageous man who must conquer the
entire Roman army or die trying.
