Twice rescued by the sardonic Sir Luke de Brigaine, Elizabeth discovers he can be as arrogant as the next crusading knight. She knows her fate is to be wed for her lands. Nevertheless, with her father away, she adroitly avoids the wedded state. With the king away, England is in a dangerous state of anarchy. Prince John, infamous for power-seeking perfidy and merciless cruelty, is in rebellion. Powerful barons pillage where they will, seizing estates by marriage or murder whichever the more convenient, and Elizabeth finds that what begins as a daring folly traps her in a deadly game in a man's world. The book entwines strands of adventure, romance and humour. Curl up in a well-cushioned window-seat and enjoy.
