The scent of destiny is a powerful lure.
Can the chosen come to his senses before it’s too late?
When Arthur is called to unite the forces of Cymru to halt Saxon incursions for good, he has his doubts. But with each successive victory, his confidence grows. Soon he not only thinks his people could prevail, he’s begun to believe what they’re saying about him.
That he could be king. That he should be king. That under his leadership, Cymru could be stronger than it’s ever been.
But a bear’s den is only as sturdy as its weakest wall, and cracks are forming in Arthur’s own bed chamber.
Bedwyr has spent his adult life shielding Arthur. Sometimes protecting the man from his own worst impulses seems more difficult than fending off Saxons. And his fellow Cymry aren’t helping matters with their dangerous talk of kings.
But another threat has risen, one that Bedwyr should have seen coming. Because those with ill intent tend to ally with one another.
If he doesn’t hunt them down, he and his cub will find themselves ensnared in a trap of their own making.
Baited by Fortune is the 8th novel of the Sons of Britain series.
