Shortlisted for the 2013 International Rubery Book Award New York, present day. Karen Brown, angry and frightened after surviving a kidnap attempt, has a harsh choice – being eliminated by government enforcer Jeffery Renschman or fleeing to the mysterious Roma Nova, her dead mother’s homeland in Europe. Founded sixteen centuries ago by Roman exiles and ruled by women, Roma Nova gives Karen safety and a ready-made family. 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...

Review:

"Grips like a vice - a writer to watch out for." - Adrian Magson author of the Harry Tate spy thrillers

"Terrific. Brilliantly plotted original story, grippingly told and cleverly combining the historical with the futuristic. It's a real edge-of-the seat read, genuinely hard to put down." - Sue Cook, writer and broadcaster

"I loved it! Intriguing, unusual and thought-provoking. Karen develops from a girl anyone of us could know into one of the toughest heroines I've read for a while. Roma Nova was a world I really wanted to visit - and not just to meet Conrad - vivid and compelling. A pacey, suspenseful thriller with a truly dreadful villain, I can't recommend Inceptio enough." - Kate Johnson, author of The UnTied Kingdom

"Tense, fast-paced and deliciously inventive, Alison Morton's INCEPTIO soon had me turning the pages. Very Dashiell Hammett." - Victoria Lamb, author of The Queen's Secret "Gripping.

"Alison Morton creates a fully realised world of what could have been. Breathtaking action, suspense, political intrigue... Inceptio is a tour de force!" - Russell Whitfield, author of Gladiatrix and Roma Victrix

About the Author:

Alison Morton loves historical fiction and thrillers. A 'Roman nut' since age 11, she has visited sites throughout Europe including the alma mater, Rome. But it was walking on the mosaics at Ampurias (Spain) that triggered her wondering what a Roman society would be like if run by women. Always enjoying well-written romantic suspense and thrillers with a twist, 'what if' alternate history fiction had particularly intrigued her.

So when she came to novel writing in reaction to a really dire film, alternate history thrillers  featuring a strong female character in a Roman themed world weren't so unlikely!

INCEPTIO starts the Roma Nova series and our heroine's own story, PERFIDITAS (betrayal), finds her caught between two men and falsely accused of conspiracy. In SUCCESSIO, chickens come home to roost as the next generation enters the scene...

Alison has also published a history ebook, "Military or Civilians? The curious anomaly of the German Women's Auxiliary Services during the Second World War" and for new writers, "The 500 Word Writing Buddy".
