Duchess in Flight
She's on the run from a deadly enemy. He lives in the shadows of truth. When their lives merge, will their battle for survival lead to love?
The German Alps, 1450 AD. Lady Beatrix Edelman refuses to go down without a fight. Already under siege in the palace, she's forced to gather her family and flee from her violent illegitimate son-in-law's murderous rampage. And though she's thankful for refuge at a convent, the duchess is too focused on defending her children to notice the mute man unable to tear his eyes away...
Erasmus has not spoken one word since the day his father tried to kill him. Taken in by the charitable nuns as a traumatized child, the now-grown refugee is terrified someone will learn his true identity. But when a remarkable woman shows up seeking asylum, he's compelled to assist her no matter the personal cost.
Taken as a hostage by the villagers, Lady Beatrix despairs as she becomes dependent on the silent stranger for aid. And after Erasmus finds her frantically looking for escape, he breaks years of silence to convince the captivating beauty to trust him... despite his shocking secret.
Can they help each other find safety and the haven waiting in their arms?

About the Author
I am a travelling author who currently lives in Lisbon, after stints in London, Johannesburg, and Bangkok. My ambition is to publish 100 books. It's a challenge I decided upon after I'd completed my 33rd book. Or I should say, my 33rd first draft. I am currently working at getting all of those first drafts into a publishable state. This is taking considerably longer than I'd anticipated! Especially as I keep getting distracted by ideas for yet more books.
I am an introvert and I think that makes me quite sensitive to overstimulation. I find rollercoaster, action-packed blockbusters too stressful to read. This probably influences my writing which reviewers have described as gentle. I might describe what I write as easy reading or slow fiction. They are the kind of books that are perfect to curl up with on the sofa on a rainy day or take to the park to read under a tree. They are feel-good stories where good triumphs over evil and the girl gets the boy with some bumps along the way.
