Working title: All for One
YA Three Musketters Re-telling.
Elise D’Artagnan is a Musketeer at heart.
Well trained and with an ancestry heavily linked to the famous military corp she would make the perfect recruit.
There’s only one problem.
The Musketeers do not accept women among their ranks.
When Elise’s brother, Armand, dies, she has an important decision to make; to remain in her provincial French town and marry a man she’s never met, or disguise herself as her departed brother and join the company she was born to serve.
Reaching Paris, she finds herself assigned as bodyguard to the new princess of France, a young woman named Marie Antoinette. Between her Musketeer duties and keeping her identity hidden, Elise discovers that behind the gilded façade of Versailles lies a realm of secrets, sabotage and sedition that will challenge Elise’s loyalties and set her on a path against dangerous adversaries.
Honour. Duty. Family and friendship.
Everything will be put on the line in this thrilling action adventure novel.
For when your comrade’s motto is “All for One”, the question Elise must ask herself is how much of her All is she prepared to risk others finding out…?
