Terrified after a kidnap attempt, New Yorker Karen Brown, has a harsh choice – being eliminated by EUS government enforcer Renschman or fleeing to mysterious Roma Nova, her dead mother’s homeland in Europe.

CARINA – A novella
Is learning a lesson worth losing your life?
Bringing back a traitor to face trial seems an easy job for young Roma Novan officer Carina Mitela, until she is catapulted into confrontation with the powerful head of the Praetorian Guard. Will she collapse in face of corruption at high level or risk disgrace and destruction in standing up for her principles?

Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces is in trouble – one 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.

Seeking help from a not quite legal old friend could wreck her marriage to the enigmatic Conrad. Once proscribed and operating illegally, she risks being terminated by both security services and conspirators. As she struggles to overcome the desperate odds and save her beloved Roma Nova and her own life, she faces the ultimate betrayal…
