If you enjoy sweeping stories set on an international stage, with complex and engaging characters, The Spanish Patriot is for you.

Historical fiction set in Galicia, Spain, in 1809.

"An ambitious and enlightening work of fiction that will satisfy lovers of history and romance alike."

Kirkus Reviews


As Manchester simmers under the tensions of the summer of 1819, the choices grow more stark for Maddie and Nash: Family or justice. Love or money. Life or death.


“Powerful. Disturbing. Heartbreaking. Smart. Occasionally gentle, often brutal. And always enthralling. An atypical setting, an actual historical event, masterfully layered characters and a sophisticated, seamless narrative — An Untitled Lady is a standout, gripping historical romance, unlike any Regency you’ve ever read.”
USA Today
