THE KING'S MISTRESS
Genre: Historical Romance, E-book, Scotland
This entertaining story of romance and court intrigue is told in such a way and uses just the right amount of period-correct language to transport the reader to 13th-century Scotland without overwhelming them.
Sent by the King of Scotland to fetch his mistress from Buddle to Edinburgh, Captain Britt MacKinnon decides to take the long way back, hoping the king will get his lady queen pregnant before his return. But Greer Armstrong, the king’s purported love, is pregnant and it is her twin, Geneen, with whom Britt unknowingly heads toward Edinburgh. Meanwhile, the queen gets word of Greer’s condition and sends a trusted friend to dispatch both Greer and Britt. With Geneen determined to reach Edinburgh in time to present proof she as Greer is not pregnant, the queen determined to convince the king that she, herself, is and Britt falling for the woman he soon discovers is an imposter, the king’s untimely demise sets everyone’s plan off-kilter.
