UK Release Date:  April 1, 2010
US Release Date:  June 1, 2010

SYNOPSIS:  A brand-new historical novel from a well-loved storyteller - Marguerite de Valois, the most beautiful woman in the French Court, is the subject of great intrigue. She loves Henri of Guise, but is married off to Henry of Navarre, which – her mother hopes – will bring peace to the realm. But, within days, the streets of Paris are awash with blood, and Marguerite and her new husband are held hostage by her own family. Can they ever hope to escape alive? In a court rife with murder, jealousy and the hunger for power, it will not be an easy task.




  1. I'm looking forward to this one since there is so little written about Marguerite. She lived quite an interesting life!

  2. The cover is very blah. The story sounds interesting though. What time period is it?
