I am currently reading The Bastard King by Jean Plaidy, her first book in the Norman Trilogy. It isn't any wonder that Jean Plaidy is one of my favorite authors. I love her writing style, she is very direct and to the point, she doesn't waste time on too much description, just the right amount. I highly recommend this read. It's out of print now, I found it at my local library. Great read about William I and Matilda.
Teaser #1 He was treated to the hospitality of the palace, although he was aware that her parents eyed him with some misgiving. Nor could he blame them. What had possessed him to drag this beautiful girl into the mud? And what possessed her to have forgiven him so easily for doing so?
Teaser #2 He thought her enchanting; nor could he be blind to the adoration she was offering him. Poor little girl. As much a pawn as one of those pieces her father was moving across his chessboard.
