“A Discreet Gentleman of Discovery” is Released TODAY!


Brander Hansen lost his hearing at age seven, his inheritance at twenty-three. Furious at his father’s betrayal, Brander leaves home to make his way as Lord Olsen, a ‘discreet gentleman of discovery’ in 1720 Christiania, Norway. He intends to gain his own estate and begins buying the debt markers on Kildahlshus. 

Baroness Regin Kildahl’s husband has gambled away her estate and sunk to more dangerous habits. She writes to Lord Olsen soliciting his help saving both her husband and her home. When her husband dies, Regin offers herself and her title to anyone who will redeem his gambling debts, unaware of Brander’s plan and circumventing his efforts. 

The Hansen heir accepts her offer and hires Lord Olsen to deliver his bride. Brander’s choices are clear: give the widow and her estate to his younger brother, or claim them both as his own. But who would accept a deaf husband?

    Where did you get the inspiration for your deaf hero? Are the heroes of all your books related?

      Yes, Barbara – All my heroes (and one heroine, so far) are members of the fictional Hansen family of Arendal, Norway. My inspiration for Brander was an article that talked about how women are attracted to men with intense stares. And I thought, who stares intently? A deaf man would. Voila! Brander is VERY intelligent and he uses his deafness to solve crimes. This book is the beginning of a historical crime series. 🙂
