REVENGE OF THE ROSE
Genre: Historical Romance, Historical Fiction
Throughout the courts of Europe,
Willem gains recognition for his skills as a knight, and Jouglet sees him as a pawn in a game to be played out with Willem's sister, Lienor. Jouglet plans to help Willem reclaim his birthright and Lienor marry Konrad.
The plan gets under way with a rousing start. Konrad comes to admire Willem but runs amok as the balance of power in the court is thrown off. Konrad's brother, Paul, is a cardinal who seeks evidence of improprieties between Willem, Lienor and Jouglet. Soon Jouglet is caught in the game and may be forced to reveal a secret that will ruin everything the minstrel strives to achieve.
With a delightfully wry sense of humor, charming characters, a plot
