Hey, everyone...just wanted to share that the brand new cover has just been released for The Centurion & The Queen, to be released in paperback and e-book April 15th (fingers crossed). I'm so thrilled with the cover and hope the readers will love it, too...

ALSO, I just yesterday signed my contract for the sequel to The Centurion, called THE BRETON & THE GENERAL - Below is the blurb...This will also be out this year, but not sure when, yet...

DON'T FORGET...I still have a contest open for anyone who joins my mailing list (visit www.minnettemeador.com (http://www.minnettemeador.com) and click the mailing list link) for a free e-copy of either Starsight, my epic fantasy, or The Centurion & The Queen, a historical romance when it comes out in April. AND I will have the Centurion Helmet thimble to give away. Contest ends on March 31st, but there will be a contest every month in my newsletter. Thanks! Minnette :)

The Boudicca revolt has been squelched, the tribes of the Iceni and the Trinovantes exterminated by the Roman Governor of Britannia, Suetonius. He has sworn his revenge on the remaining tribes for the Celtic insolence.
Marius and Delia are now King and Queen of a broken Celtic tribe. Using his twenty-five years as a Roman Centurion, Marius has to use all his skill and cunning to help his hunted people as they flee before General Suetonius' sword. Reluctantly donning the mask of the liberatio mysticus, the “phantom” that hide the scattered tribes, the couple recruits Marius' ex-Roman century and what few Celtic warriors that remain to face the deadly Roman machine. They struggle to keep their people together and the rest of a nation from fading into history.

Marius and Delia are threatened by secret plots, jealousy, and a new enemy that hammers a wedge between them, which even an unborn child, may not be able to dislodge. Has Marius committed the ultimate sin? Sacrifices must be made to save their people, to keep the nation together, to survive the Roman rage. In the end, it may be more than their love or their lives they lose.
