    New York, present day. Karen Brown, angry and frightened after surviving a kidnap attempt, has a harsh choice - elimination by government enforcer Jeffery Renschman or fleeing to the mysterious Roma Nova, her dead mother's homeland in Europe. Founded 16 centuries ago by Roman exiles and ruled by women, Roma Nova gives Karen safety and a ready-made family - at a price.

    Intriguing concept, a fast-paced thriller

    I wasn’t too sure how I would get on with this book as I’m not a great fan of fantasy or sci-fi (Amazon’s classifications), but frankly, I wouldn’t cl..Show More »

    Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces is in trouble - one military colleague has tried to kill her, and another has set a trap to incriminate her in a conspiracy to topple the government of Roma Nova. Founded 1,600 years ago by Roman dissidents and ruled by women, Roma Nova barely survived a devastating coup d'état 30 years ago. Carina swears to prevent a repeat and not merely for love of country.

    Roma Nova - the last remnant of the Roman Empire that has survived into the 21st century - is at peace. Carina Mitela, the heir of a leading family but choosing the life of an officer in the Praetorian Guard Special Forces, is not so sure. She senses danger crawling towards her when she encounters a strangely self-possessed member of the unit hosting their exchange exercise in Britain. When a blackmailing letter arrives from a woman claiming to be her husband Conrad's lost daughter and Conrad tries to shut Carina out, she knows the threat is real.

    Late 1960s, Roma Nova, the last Roman colony that has survived into the 20th century. Aurelia Mitela is alone - her partner gone, her child sickly and her mother dead - and forced to give up her beloved career as a Praetorian officer. But her country needs her unique skills. Somebody is smuggling silver - Roma Nova's lifeblood - on an industrial scale. Sent to Berlin to investigate, she encounters the mysterious and attractive Miklós, a known smuggler who knows too much, and Caius Tellus, a Roma Novan she has despised and feared since childhood.
