She’s done the deed, can she escape the punishment?
Elsabeth Soesten is always in trouble.
Her comrade-in-arms has dragged her into a deal with the Abbot of Friuli to recover stolen church property, but what began as a simple good deed (with a bit of church coin as incentive) soon finds the pair swept up into a conspiracy against the Prince-Bishop of Bremen. Trapped between an agent of the Bishop on one hand and the Abbot on the other, the only way out is to unravel the plot, and determine just what they have to do with the reclusive Baron of Leyen.
And just maybe they can work their way out of the whole mess with heads still attached and purses a little fatter.
The Adventures of Elsabeth Soesten begin again with the novel-length Second Edition of No Good Deed…, available now!
Don’t believe everything you hear in minstrel’s tales…
There are some things in the world that are real, and others found only in minstrels’ fancies.
Elsabeth and Hieronymus find these lines blurring after accepting a simple escort job to the isolated village of Checy. Local folklore tells of a wizard dwelling in the wilderness nearby, and their client, an orphaned youth named Maerten, hopes that his magic can reveal the truth about his past. Despite their skepticism, Elsabeth and Hieronymus are soon drawn kicking and screaming into the unlikely tale of a destroyed kingdom and a long-lost heir.
Now, Elsabeth finds herself struggling to balance her growing affection for the boy in her charge with the knowledge that they must part ways when they reach their destination. And hanging over all is the reality of the heartbreak Maerten must face when he learns that rumors and tall tales are seldom what they seem.
The Adventures of Elsabeth Soesten continue with the second edition of Bait And Switch, now available for preorder on Kindle, and releasing in Hardcover on July 5, 2022!
