New York, present day. Karen Brown, angry and frightened after surviving a kidnap attempt, has a harsh choice - elimination by government enforcer Jeffery Renschman or fleeing to the mysterious Roma Nova, her dead mother's homeland in Europe.
Founded 16 centuries ago by Roman exiles and ruled by women, Roma Nova gives Karen safety and a ready-made family - at a price. But a shocking discovery about her new lover, the fascinating but arrogant Special Forces officer Conrad Tellus, who rescued her in America, isolates her.
Renschman reaches into her new home and nearly kills her. Recovering, she is desperate to find out why he is hunting her so viciously. Unable to rely on anybody else, she undergoes intensive training, develops fighting skills and becomes an undercover cop. But, crazy with bitterness at his past failures, Renschman sets a trap for her, knowing she has no choice but to spring it....

Intriguing concept, a fast-paced thriller
Three Cheers! Even better on Audible!
I read Inceptio soon after it was first published and immediately became hooked on the series (thank goodness it is a series - I think I could become quite bereft without a regular new Roma Nova fix) Books I enjoy I like to re-read, but with fading sight this is becoming a problem - thank goodness for Kindle and the ability to increase the font size, but now hurrah for Audible! No more straining to see the words a relaxing enjoyable experience of listening to some of my favourite characters instead! I admit I was dubious when I first downloaded this one: would narration detract from how I imagined the author's (and tha characters') voice. No! Not in the slightest, in fact the book is now even better (if that's possible!) So three cheers for Audible, Three Cheers for Ms Morton and Three Cheers for Roma Nova!
The realisation that Rome had survived into the 21st century, an amazing, and I think Unique, concept, with unique characters and a unique plot.
All of them!
a wonderful, exciting, read from cover to cover.
