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...!
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!

*Starred Review* Once Lady Marguerite of Alencon was Henry Plantagenet's favorite, but now that the king has grown weary of her, he decides to reward one of his most faithful nobles, Lord Orrick of Silloth, with a wife worthy of his standing. Orrick, however, is not thrilled about being gifted with the king's former mistress but realizes that he has little choice. At first he tries to woo his new wife with kind words and thoughtful gestures, but sharp-tongued Marguerite, who was trained to be the consort of a king, is less than pleased with her new status as the wife of a "barbarous" northern lord. But what begins as a marriage in name only becomes something much more real as Marguerite realizes that despite her objections she is falling in love with her new husband. With a superb gift for characterization, Brisbin creates a complex, completely fascinating heroine in strong yet vulnerable Marguerite, and her bold, vivid writing beautifully captures the flavor of medieval castle life and the intrigue-rich Plantagenet court. Passionate and romantic, The King's Mistress is a rare delight. John Charles
