...quibbles aside, I enjoyed The King's Pleasure. I glom onto history-intense reads, like a yuppie cuddles his cellular phone. Also, the variety of locations gave the story some depth, that I too often find missing in historicals - one of the few things I miss about the old epic bodice rippers.

Synopsis

When a French woman is married off to the handsome Scot who conquered her town, she is determined not to let him conquer her heart as well
The English army’s siege of Aville has ground to a standstill—until a ten-year-old Scottish lad masterminds a breakthrough. The castle falls easily, giving glory to the king and a place at court to young Adrien MacLachlan. But his greatest reward is still to come. Years later, the king decrees that Adrien shall marry Danielle d’Aville, a maiden of the town Adrien helped conquer. She loathes the strapping Scottish knight, but his strength stirs something inside of her—a passion that betrays everything her vanquished people stand for. As Danielle’s hatred for him pushes her towards treason, her budding love is the only thing that can pull her back from the brink. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
