    It’s been o̶n̶e̶ w̶e̶e̶k̶ five years since the Battle of Alnecester. Five years since Aethelflaed and Erik were torn apart by fate - and for the sake of Aethelflaed’s claim to Mercia. They remain in each other’s lives at a painful distance, unable to sever the ties that bind them, unable to give each other what the other truly wants. Amidst their heartache, their daughter Aelfwynn grows up with a rag tag band of warrior’s children. But things are shifting in Mercia. Edward Rex, now King of Wessex, is exerting more control over his sister’s kingdom and trying to draw her into the fold of his own plans. When he comes to her court at Tamworthig with his bastard children, he sets in motion a chain of events that will pull Aethelflaed and Erik closer together than they’ve been in years. It should be simple, but things have never been simple for the lovers torn apart. Are they wound in the strands of fate? Or weaving a web of their own folly?

    Summary

    "You had often wondered how you ended up here, the third wheel in the well-oiled, grumpy and semi-alcoholic DEA duo consisting of Steve Murphy and Javier Peña... Actually, that was a lie. You hadn't wondered at all. You knew exactly how you'd ended up here. The two male agents had never been particularly good with following orders, which had been a thorn in ambassador Noonan's side since day one. And as everyone who knew the old saying “if you can't beat 'em, join 'em” could tell you, you were the intended solution to that particular problem. And boy had you let everyone down."
