The fourth book in the Castle Garden Series…
From NEW YORK TIMES and USA Today bestselling author Colleen Gleason: passion and deception amid the shadowy court of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II.
An honorable man: Malcolm de Monde, Lord of Warwick needs a wife. He reluctantly journeys to the turbulent royal court where his plan is simple: find a dutiful woman, gain the king’s approval for his choice and return to Warwick with his lady wedded, bedded, and carrying his heir-all before winter.
An independent woman: Judith of Kentworth, Royal Falconer and lady-in-waiting, is a woman from Malcolm’s past. Although she is a confidante of the queen, Judith’s beauty and vivacity attract the unwanted attentions of the king-and the woman who commands winged predators becomes prey herself.
A simple plan that goes awry when Malcolm encounters Judith. Once betrothed to his friend, she’s a woman nothing like the meek wife he seeks…but who may be exactly the type of woman he needs.
An impossible choice: Malcolm offers Judith a chance to escape her predicament…But can she risk entangling her own personal white knight in a dangerous web of royal intrigue?
The Castle Garden Series does not have to be read in order.
However, for those who want to read it in chronological order, the stories go as follows:
A WHISPER OF ROSEMARY
SANCTUARY OF ROSES
A LILY ON THE HEATH
In the tradition of Lara Adrian, Paula Quinn, Catherine Coulter, Julie Garwood and Roberta Gellis, A Whisper of Rosemary is a delicious medieval romance.
