The Lover’s Portrait: An Art Mystery (Adventures of Zelda Richardson Book 2)

by Jennifer S. Alderson

Missing masterpieces, Nazi blackmailers and a pesky amateur sleuth.

When a Dutch art dealer hides the stock from his gallery – rather than turn it over to his Nazi blackmailer – he pays with his life, leaving a treasure trove of modern masterpieces buried somewhere in Amsterdam, presumably lost forever. That is, until American art history student Zelda Richardson sticks her nose in.

After studying for a year in the Netherlands, Zelda scores an internship at the prestigious Amsterdam Museum, where she works on an exhibition of paintings and sculptures once stolen by the Nazis, lying unclaimed in Dutch museum depots almost seventy years later. When two women claim the same portrait of a young girl entitled Irises, Zelda is tasked with investigating the painting’s history and soon finds evidence that one of the two women must be lying about her past. Before she can figure out which one it is and why, Zelda learns about the Dutch art dealer’s concealed collection. And that Irises is the key to finding it all.

Her discoveries make her a target of someone willing to steal – and even kill – to find the missing paintings. As the list of suspects grows, Zelda realizes she has to track down the lost collection and unmask a killer if she wants to survive.

Taken by the Barbarian Princes (Skatha Chronicles Book 1)

by Lily Reynard

Torn from my home on my wedding day by the conquering troops of General Vespasian, I offer myself as a war-prize to two handsome, muscular barbarian princes in return for my family’s safety. Far from being afraid, I thank all the gods for this unexpected rescue from my loathsome bridegroom.

Hardened by years in the army, these two men are looking for a voluptuous wife. Before they return to their tribal homeland on the distant Roman frontier, they will take what they’ve come for, and give me the passionate initiation into womanhood that I’ve always craved.

This novella is the first of a three-part serial historical romance set in ancient Rome.
