Southampton Swindle is a novella-length story — one that you, dear readers and reviewers, have been asking for.
It’s the story of Nial and Sebastian’s first meeting, from the Blood Stone series.
It’s not the only novella or short story related to the series that I plan to put out, so I’ve called these little snippets “Blood Drops”.
Their numbering explains where they come within the series storyline. This one is 1.1, so it comes after the first book, Blood Knot, which is #1.
In a couple of weeks time I will be releasing a second Blood Drops story, Broken Promise, and that will be #1.2, which means it comes after this story, Southampton Swindle, but before the second book in the series, Blood Stone.
Liars are in need of good allies.
Southampton, 1786: Since being tossed from his ancestral family home at thirteen, and falling in with a swindler, Sebastian has been fighting to preserve life and limb any way he can. While ingratiating himself with Lady Wandsworth and her thousands of pounds, Sebastian meets another roguish charmer, Nathanial, and at his side, the pretty but deadly Anne. Sebastian’s world is abruptly changed as he is introduced to imagination-defying ideas and is snared in an international swindle involving the Queen of France’s diamond necklace.
Sebastian is drawn to Nathanial and his worldly, experienced ways, until Anne reveals the truth about him and the necklace….

It’s the story of how the two men met, and closes lots of question I had about them. Its a fun read, very set in the 1700’s and is a sort of period “who dunnit” novel. As always, Tracy pulls out stops so we can’t quite work out who’s done what, just when I thought I knew what and who was to blame things changed. Of course as its how the two men met there’s some hot, sexy love scenes too….A great fill in book, wrapped up in a diverting story.– Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
