ROMA NOVA EXTRA singles are out!

 Realising that not everybody wants a whole book of short stories, I’ve sent four of them out to the world as single short reads on Kindle. New readers might like to dip into Roma Nova this way, just to see what it’s about…

Originally published in the ROMA NOVA EXTRA collection, the individual stories reflect different aspects of Roma Nova.

Conrad & Carina’s Roman Holiday features the two most popular characters from the series. What seems like a simple errand for Imperatrix Silva in the old Roman capital in Italy plunges the pair into a threat from an ancient mystery.

A Roman in 1066 sees eleventh century Galla Mitela trying to stop the Norman invasion of England, with a possible alternative outcome…

The other pair of stories are more romantic, although one more so than the other.

In The Girl from the Market, young Roman tribune Apulius get much more than he bargained for when he meets Julia Bacausa, the fiery daughter of the ruling prince in Roman Noricum. But apart from the story of Roma Nova’s founding family, we also see the Roman Empire in AD370 as its nature is changing radically and its power fading.

Allegra – An Unusual Love Story is just that. Carina and Conrad’s eldest daughter is highly intelligent, efficient and dedicated to her career in the military, but her introverted character prevents her from acknowledging her feelings for a man she has known all her life, let alone doing anything about it. Macrinus has grown up in the Mitela household. His mother was a comrade-in-arms of the legendary Aurelia Mitela during the Great Rebellion and tells him Allegra is out of his reach. Will the unhappy non-lovers ever work it out?

Perhaps after dipping into one or more of the stories, readers might like to read the whole collection or investigate the series. Whatever you do, enjoy!
