William Neville FitzAlan is a warrior with honor to his crown and to his king. When King Henry promised him the lands of a traitor, it came with one obligation.
Lady Catherine Rayburn knows just how cruel life can be. Her husband was a traitor to the crown, and she was the one who fed the truth to King Henry. Spying for her country should have gotten her a reprieve once her husband was caught, but instead she got something else entirely.
When William laid eyes upon the brave woman standing in the way of his new home, he knows she must be the Lady of the keep. Seeing the woman, her back stiff with pride, facing down his mountainous men, William vows they will wed. Catherine could not believe the King ordered her remarried or put in the Tower after all she has done for him. Now William and Catherine must find peace and trust within each other even as someone close whispers of deceits and lies that may tear them apart forever.
As a debut novelist, Ms. Mallory has done an amazing job of not only introducing us to her work, but to a new series as well. Knight of Desire is the first in the All The King’s Men series and what a way to start it off. The tension between Catherine and William is so tense I swear the turning pages crackled with the friction both characters put out. The fifteenth century came alive with the author’s depiction of the time frame, the people, and the events in history. With an ending that will lead you to a new story, this is sure to be a magnificent new tale full of honor, love, spies, betrayal, hunky men, beautiful women, and teaching an alpha male that women can be the strong ones in any time period!
