A CAVALIER AND A CON ARTIST WALK INTO FANTASY!
NANCY A. HANSEN’S ‘BY THE WAYSIDE TALES’ DEBUTS’
Alexandre Louis Edouard Lebeau and Danika the Phantom Rose first appeared in TALES OF THE VAGABOND BARDS from author Nancy A. Hansen’s HANSEN’S WAY author imprint and Pro Se Productions. Now they are back, in three brand new and exciting adventures of their own in BY THE WAYSIDE TALES, now available in print and digital formats.
Wanted fugitives on the run, the bantam sized count turned cavalier and the charming and street-wise half-Elven con artist find themselves embroiled in one tenuous situation after another as they attempt to stay ahead of relentless pursuit. Along the way they make friends and enemies, right some wrongs, and learn more about each other’s strengths and weaknesses.
Find out what happens when a stern woman takes over running her uncle’s estate in desperation to avoid marrying a man she cannot love—a man who wants nothing more than to ruin them both. Will Alex and Danika find out the truth of her situation? Or will some final treachery cost them everything they’ve gained?
Back on the road and slogging through days of foul weather, Danika manages to get Alex to tell her of his past, and why he now travels so far from his homeland. It is a heart-wrenching story of love versus duty, where Alex learned the hard way that you can’t let your devotion to the one you hold most dear blind you to her more sordid and malevolent side. In the end, will Alex be able to set aside his own feelings and deal decisively with the horror and outrage the one he cherishes most has perpetrated on others?
Even delightful little villages have their dark secrets. A stop in a small country inn buzzing with local gossip about a recent murder leads to Alex and Danika looking up the rather ostentatious Lord of the area. Unfortunately, involving themselves in the situation with the idea of bringing the truth to light sets Alex and Danika up for revenge when the unhappy family of the deceased sets the bounty hunters back on their trail.
These are the tales garnered by the wayside, where just about anything can and will happen. By Nancy A. Hansen from HANSEN’S WAY and Pro Se Productions.
Featuring a terrific cover, logo design, and print formatting by Emily Mottesheard, BY THE WAYSIDE TALES is available in print on Amazon for $11.99.
