Publisher's Summary

The three young children of Adelard de Blays - two sons and a daughter - are separated when their father commits treason against the King of England. Follow each of their stories in The King’s Cousins, a new trilogy by Alexa Aston.

1342 A.D.: Spirited away when his father, Adelard de Blays, commits treason, bastard Quill Cardon longs to reclaim his family name when he reaches manhood and reunite with his half-siblings, Landon and Katelyn. Winning the king’s tournament at Smithfield and saving the life of Prince Edward leads to Quill being awarded an earldom and an estate of his own - but what he most desires is Lady Tristanna Willoughby, a woman he can never have. 

Tristanna has served for years as a lady-in-waiting to Queen Philippa and has waited for the return of her betrothed, Jarrett Marsden, from the war in France. Tristanna dislikes Jarrett, who chases anything in a skirt, and longs to wed Sir Quill Cardon, an honorable knight who has captured her heart. 

When circumstances change, Quill and Tristanna have a chance at happiness - until a man seeking revenge threatens to tear them apart. 

Each book in The King’s Cousins Trilogy is a stand-alone story that can be enjoyed out of order. 

Series Order:
Book #1: The Pawn

The Bastard

I have loved this series through all 4 books! Alexa Aston is an excellent writer who pays attention to even the smallest details, and this collaboration with Brad Wills makes for a double 5 star experience! I confess, the cover art caught my eye immediately upon seeing it. I'm not sure who the artist is, but they are very talented! The guy on the front is just yummy to say the least. 💗 Once again I just transposed him into the Quil of the story even though he doesn't have Quil's raven locks. Excellent audiobook! Both author and narrator deserve a 5+ Star rating.

Much Enjoyed!

Alexa had written another exciting story of the King’s Cousins! She is very talented! Brad Wills is my favorite narrator! He breathes life into the story like no other! When he does each character, I know immediately who is speaking whether it be male, female, servant or otherwise. I especially enjoy hearing his children’s voices. What a great actor!
