Optioned for new Game of Thrones-style series.
Meet Richard Fitzwarren: a mercenary with a dubious past, questionable morals, but unswerving loyalties.
Two queens, two brothers...and a secret that unites them all.
The Fitzwarren brothers share no great love for each other, but disinherited, hunted for treason, and wanted for murder, circumstance and opportunity lead them into the shadowy world of Royal Court intrigue. Caught up between two sisters in a battle for an uneasy crown, the Fitzwarren brothers grudgingly find their survival and fortune depends on each other.
Jack Fitzwarren, Richard’s displaced bastard brother, seeks a place at his brother’s side. Impulsive and hot-headed, his attempts to gain his brother’s acceptance and approval often end badly. Finally, they are brought head-to-head when Richard tries to foil a plot against Elizabeth I.
Can Jack murder his brother to save a woman he’s never met?
Will Richard accept his fate and fight? Or will he run?
