Angels at Midnight!
Collin just finished the cover for the ebook edition of the 1989 novel by the same title. The ebook will be available on Amazon in late June (or early July, depending upon how long it takes KDP to take it “live.”)
Angels is the story of Collin Deverell (yes, I named the character for my son!), heir to an oil baron and his art patron wife. Unlike his twin brother, Justin, Collin has no interest in the family business. He’s a world fencing champion who has Olympic gold ambitions. When their parents are killed while traveling in South America, Collin deals with his grief with world travel, women and high-stakes gambling. He finally comes home to find the family fortunes taken over by a syndicate and vows revenge. His need to take down those who have duped his brother gives him a focus he’s never had before.
Enter Ashley Gordon-Hollister, former daughter-in-law of the crime boss Collin is after. Ashley, too, wants to bring Hollister down. After the death of her husband, Hollister’s son, he and his wife took her son away from her. She’s a pawn in Collin’s scheme at first, but soon becomes his partner…and eventually, his lover. Together, they play a dangerous game and stay one step ahead of the insurance investigator determined to bring them down….
Though it wasn’t planned, there’s an odd bit of timing involved with the ebook publication of The Unicorn’s Daughter last month and now with Angels at Midnight. The Unicorn’s Daughter begins during World War II. We released it just before Memorial Day. Angels at Midnight features a male protagonist who’s a fencing champion. Fencing is one of the sports of the Summer Olympics, which begins only a few weeks from now…..
Honestly, I didn’t plan it that way!
