Coming soon – epic fantasy THE PRINCE’S MAN

Think James Bond meets Lord of the Rings – THE PRINCE’S MAN is a sweeping tale of spies and deadly politics, inter-species mistrust and magic phobia, with an underlying thread of romance.

Meet Rustam Chalice, hedonist, dance tutor and spy. Rustam loves his life, never better than when he’s bedding a gorgeous woman.

So when the kingdom he serves is threatened from within, he leaps into action. Only trouble is, the spy master, Prince Hal, teams him up with an untouchable aristocratic assassin who despises him.

And to make matters worse, she’s the most beautiful woman in the Five Kingdoms.

This is how they meet…

Extract – THE PRINCE’S MAN

“Dart, meet Charmer. Charmer, meet Dart.”

            Rustam looked pleadingly at Halnashead. “You’re joking, surely? You must be. She can’t be Dart; she’s—”

            “What?” cut in Lady Risada. “A woman?”

            “No! Well, yes. I suppose so.” Rustam shifted uncomfortably, his mind reeling as it tried to adjust to the concept of a noblewoman as a player. Female servants on occasion, yes. But a lady?

            He glanced aside at the lady in question. She stared coldly back.

            “Please, please!” Halnashead drew their attention. “I want you two to get on with each other. Does it surprise you so much, Rusty?”

            “Rusty?” echoed Lady Risada derisively.

            Taken aback by the lady’s obvious animosity, Rustam considered the prince’s question. “I suppose it shouldn’t. With her court position, the lady has access to all levels of nobility; certainly a great asset to your Highness.”

            “And don’t you forget it, dancer boy,” muttered Risada.

            Halnashead frowned. “Be nice, Risada. Rustam is my most skilled agent.”

            “Most skilled womaniser, you mean!”
