Geoffrey’s secret intent is to make her his spy in the French court where the struggle for dominance between Normandy, France and England plays out. But what begins incool calculation becomes a passionate affair. Despite this, Geoffrey remains committed to a covert goal: to see his young warrior son, Henry, seize the English throne.Saving his father from discovery and execution by the French, Henry falls foul of Eleanor – and madly in love with her Byzantine maid.

Should he become King of England, this dazzling girl will never be acceptable as his consort. These intertwined relationships – heated, forbidden and perilous – are the heart of a vivid story of ambition, vengeance and dynastic intrigue.and political intrigue set in the glorious flowering of troubadour culture, mysticism and learning that is 12th century France.‘Blanche d’Alpuget … has a remarkable ear for the passions and cravings of her characters.

Her narrative is so fresh and energetic you will swear she’s bringing us a first-hand account. This is a writer who has returned to fiction with a boldness and vigour that mirrors the Young Lion himself …’Stephanie Dowrick
