Atilla’s Gold

451 AD and Rome is under threat, Attila’s Huns poised to invade. Thraustila, a poor Goth mercenary, is hired by senator Petronius Maximus to spy on General Flavius Aetius who is suspected of working for the Huns. Thraustila rescues Aetius’ spirited daughter Livia from bandits and uses her to get close to her father. He discovers that Roman gold meant for Attila is being stolen. But is Aetius responsible and does that mean the General is also a traitor? And what lies behind the Emperor’s determination to destroy General Aetius at a time when the empire is in such peril?

As Attila’s Huns swarm across the Rhine, Thraustila learns something that will turn his world upside down. Too late he realizes that he can trust no-one, and must make terrible choices if he is to survive and save the woman he loves.

The Regent

When Honorius, Emperor of the Western Roman Empire dies, his exiled and impoverished half-sister Galla Placidia acts quickly to put her young son Valentinian on the throne. But first she must overcome the suspicions of her powerful cousin, Theodosius, Emperor of the Eastern Empire, and confront a cabal of western generals led by the ruthless Aetius who are determined to place a rival on the throne.

Aided by Aspar, an ambitious barbarian-born officer who loves her but is tormented by his own dark secret, Galla fights to become Regent, ruling over the empire until her son comes of age, while events force her to choose between her fierce ambition for her son or a life with the man she loves.
