They Make an Unlikely Alliance…

Lady Cecily scorns the French hostages held at court. Treated as honoured guests, the men play at love games – and Cecily fears that her mistress, the Princess, might be disgraced.

War-weary chevalier Marc de Marcel wants only to return home. Uncertain whether his ransom will ever be paid, he makes an unlikely alliance with enticing fire and ice Cecily. He’ll help her keep the Princess safe from ruin if she’ll help him escape. A pact which could lead them into a scandal all their own…

Royal Weddings: a Hint of Scandal This Way Comes!

Whispers at Court by Blythe Gifford

Rating By Julia,06/02/2016

Royal Weddings series 1 _ Secrets at Court ______ 03/14 ~~~( Nicholas and Lady Anne ) 2 _ Whispers at Court _____ 06/15 ~~~( Marc and Lady Cecily ) This story is centred on Isabella and Enguerrand. Princess and Count. Marc is a Knight and friend to Enguerrand. Cecily is Isabella’s friend. Once at court they get closer, so Marc and Cecily band together to keep them apart. Full of hate for the French believing that her father was killed by one of the French knights she vents all her hate on Marc. Marc in turn cannot wait to go home. His ransom does not get paid so he decides to escape. By this time Cecily and Marc started to have feelings for each other. Marc takes Cecily back to her home but finds it hard to leave. In doing so they become closer. The King of France comes back from exile and then dies in England. Marc plans to use the body return to get home. However his plans do not work out as he hoped. This story is well written but similar to a story I have read before. So half way through it was hard to keep the enthusiasm for the story. This seems to be happening a lot lately. It has a sweet ending but very incomplete as endings go. The author added some useful notes at the end.
