The Sometime Bride

A novel by

At age fourteen, Catherine Audley, the charming but willful daughter of Britain's spy master on the Iberian Peninsula saves her father's business by making a marriage of convenience with a mysterious Englishman who calls himself Blas the Bastard. Seven years later, as Napoleon nears defeat, Catherine has become a sophisticated beauty with a serious problem in her relationship with the man she married so many years before. Is she a sometime bride, the widow of a man who never existed? Is she a well-rewarded, but discarded, mistress who will never be acknowledged by her sometime husband? Or is she the beloved wife whose only rivals are the Duke of Wellington and her husband's determined expediency in a time of war?

Just as Catherine allows herself to hope her marriage may survive, she discovers her husband has betrayed her in a manner as bizarre as it is unforgivable. Her dreams crumble to dust and, living by her own personal code of honor, Catherine must discover whether a girl from a gaming house in Lisbon, the daughter of a spy, can create a new life out of the shambles of the old.
