Announcement - Broken Blades (February 2016)

They only had one night together—a stolen interlude at the 1936 Olympics. After Mark Driscoll challenged Armin Truchsess von Kardenberg to a good-natured fencing match, there was no resisting each other. Though from different worlds—an Iowa farm boy and a German aristocrat—they were immediately drawn together, and it was an encounter neither has ever forgotten. 

Now it’s 1944, and a plane crash in hostile territory throws them back together, but on opposite sides of a seemingly endless war. Facing each other as opponents is one thing. As enemies, another thing entirely. And to make matters worse, Mark is a POW, held in a cold, remote castle in Germany… in a camp run by Armin.

They aren’t the young athletes they were back then. The war has taken wives, limbs, friends, leaving both men gray beyond their years, shell-shocked, and battered. The connection they had back then is still alive and well, though, and from the moment Mark arrives, they’re fencing again—advancing, retreating, testing defenses.

Have they been given a second chance? Or have time and a brutal war broken both men beyond repair? 


  1. This sounds incredible. I can't wait! 😊

    1. Thanks! I'm looking forward to pressing "publish". :)

  2. Hi Aleks,

    seems to be another "published by Amazon only". So I'll have to wait 'till Doomsday to get a copy, right? Right. Well, being treated like a third class reader is pretty dissapointing, but I'd better get used to it. Right?

    Best wishes,


    1. Hi Shelly - not it's not an Amazon exclusive - it's just that Amazon allows us to set up pre-orders (the other retailers are nor that advanced apparently). There's also pre-orders open on all Romance Ebooks.

      Lastly, if you want one of my KU-only books, just send me an email and I'll make sure you get a copy. I've been handing out several dozen in return for a donation to LGBTQ or refugee charities.
