The first two books in the steamy medieval romance series, All the King’s Men, from Margaret Mallory—together for one low price!
Knight of Desire
His surcoat still bloody from battle, William FitzAlan comes to claim the strategic borderlands granted to him by the king. One last prize awaits him at the castle gates: the lovely Lady Catherine Rayburn.
Catherine risked everything to spy for the crown. Her reward? Her lands are declared forfeit and she is given this choice: marry FitzAlan or be taken to the Tower. Catherine agrees to give her handsome new husband her body, but she’s keeping secrets, and dare not give him her heart.
As passion ignites and danger closes in, Catherine and William must learn to trust in each other to save their marriage, their land, and their very lives.
Knight of Pleasure
Lady Isobel Hume is an expert swordswoman who knows how to choose her battles. When the king asks her to wed a French nobleman to form a political alliance, she agrees. But that’s before the devilishly charming Sir Stephen Carleton captures her heart-and tempts her to betray her betrothed, her king, and her country.
Sir Stephen Carleton enjoys his many female admirers—until he dedicates himself to winning the lovely Isobel. So when a threat against the king leads Isobel into mortal danger, Stephen has a chance to prove that he is more than a knight of pleasure… and that love can conquer all.
Rogue Warrior by Margaret Mallory is an interesting highlander/Englisher novel. This book goes deeper than just being a historical romance novel. The stories featured include how two strong men deal meet and deal with strong women who drive them crazy. Women who are tempted to fight their own fights and make their men recognize their own strengths. Just because they are women, doesn’t mean they are weak. The men love the pleasure part of their relationships but the women want the men to love them reasons other than just lust. I love how the women bring the strong warriors down on their knees. Beauty is not their only gift. The woman are smart, strategic, and warriors too. The men are big hearted despite their big size and tough bark. There is plenty of humor, action-packed scenes, and danger to keep readers, like myself, constantly wondering what will happen next. I love the suspense, mystery, and romance. The protagonists are well-crafted. I felt sympathy for them all. I wanted to know more and I can’t wait to see what this writer has in store for her next book.
