Contents:
When the King of Lyonesse is assassinated, his fiery daughter, Catherine, heiress to the throne, is taken to Aquitane, where she is raised in the courts and given two ladies-in-waiting to rule her household and protect her from all who conspire against her. As the time when sixteen-year-old Catherine must return to Lyonesse approaches, she has many dangerous enemies. There are people who want her to go there as a puppet bride, and others who want her to go there as a corpse. But they know nothing of the capabilities of Catherine and her ladies. She may just live to claim her crown. This is the story of a strong-willed, passionate and stunningly beautiful young woman, whose close friendship with her two ladies-in-waiting helps her to overcome her oppressors and make all the men in her life wish they hadn't underestimated her. Think Philippa Gregory and Libba Bray, with lots of fabulous period detail, gorgeous dresses and bodice-ripping, and plenty of swashbuckling too.
