Love, Duty and Loyalty Collide During the Disastrous Reign of Edward II
While love seldom enters into marriage considerations among the nobility, Maria d’Arderne risks all to flout convention and marry Phillip, a second son more interested in adventure than settling down. When Phillip leaves her, Maria embarks on a scandalous affair with Richard of Sussex, Edward II’s powerful half-brother. But when England’s barons rebel against the feckless king, who prefers his favorites to governing, Maria, Richard, Phillip—and ultimately King Edward himself–must pay the price for following their hearts. $3.94 on Kindle.
