Synopsis

Queen's Knight by JL Gorman

King Richard the Lionheart is on crusade, and his treacherous brother is not slow to see the possibilities. It's a fight for power by marriage or murder, whichever is most convenient, and the Lady Elizabeth discovers that an heiress is a desirable, disposable commodity in a man's world. The sardonic Sir Luke fights for Eleanor of Aquitaine, but he's not above bloodshed and abduction on his own account when required. Twice rescued by Sir Luke, Elizabeth discovers he can be as arrogant as the next crusading knight. Elizabeth knows her fate is to be wed for her lands. Nevertheless, with her father away, she adroitly avoids the wedded state. England is in a dangerous state of anarchy. Prince John, infamous for power-seeking perfidy and merciless cruelty, is in rebellion. Powerful barons pillage where they will, and Elizabeth finds that what begins as a daring folly traps her in a deadly game in a man's world. The book entwines strands of action, romance and humour, painting a vivid picture of mediaeval life in King Richard the Lionheart's reign. This carefully researched book is a gripping read, and one to curl up with in a well-cushioned window-seat.
