História de rápida leitura este romance histórico mas não é nada simples o seu enredo. Inicia o seu relato com o rei Henrique falando com a sua amante e dispensando-a. Feito de um forma caricata, casando-a com outro nobre para a parte mais afastada do seu reino. Não diria que o seu inicio coloca-se o livro no topo dos finais felizes mas fui um pouco surpreendida.
Casos e acasos transformam-no numa leitura interessante.
There were worse things than to be shackled in marriage to a handsome, powerful lord who desired her -- but Marguerite of Alencon was bred to be consort to a king and could not abide her fate. She had great power as Henry Plantagenet's mistress, and to be set aside and promised as a bride to noble Orrick of Silloth was an insult she could not bear...!Boas leituras
Orrick knew his reluctant bride was a creature of the court with many secrets. And yet, Marguerite of Alencon would make him a perfect partner -- accomplished and gracious, a true Lady of the Keep -- if only she could release her turbulent past and embrace a passionate future...in his arms!
