Publisher's Summary

Book one in an amazing new Medieval Historical Romance series, The King's Cousins.

When three young children are separated when their father commits treason against the King of England, romance, excitement, and intrigue abound. Follow each of their stories in this exciting new series!

1338 A.D. - Exiled to a convent after her father’s execution for treason, Katelyn de Blays has fleeting memories of the man she adored and the outside world. When her brother’s search leads him to find Katelyn after many years, she is eager to leave with Landon and begin a new life. He brings her to the court of her cousin, Edward III, who betroths Katelyn to a powerful earl of Northumberland, using her as a political pawn to show his continued support of his northern noblemen.

When Sir Nicholas Mandeville returns from patrolling his family’s lands along the Scottish border, he discovers his father has died - and left a widow - whom his uncle wed Nicholas to by proxy during his absence. Angry at becoming the Earl of Northmere and having no choice regarding his wife, Nicholas vows to leave the widow untouched until he knows whether or not she carries his father’s child.

As time passes and Nicholas loses his heart to this brave, young woman, he is astonished to learn Katelyn wishes for their union to be annulled. Can he convince Kate to remain wed to him - or will Nicholas sacrifice his own happiness and let the enigmatic beauty go?

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

Series order:

  • Book 1: The Pawn
  • Book 2: The Heir
  • Book 3: The Bastard

For those who savor romance on the high seas, you might enjoy the standalone prequel to The King’s Cousins Trilogy. God of The Seas is part of the Pirates of Britannia World and features Godwin de Blays and Melisent Winchester, great-grandparents to Quill, Landon, and Katelyn.

Exciting!

I really enjoyed this one! It was exciting from start to finish! Brad Will has the narration down pat. He does all of the voices with precision. He gives emotion to every character and he has the ability to make me think I am watching a movie!
