Compelling characters and suspenseful moments will keep readers well entertained, but the dark motifs and plague plotline may be too somber for some.

As the plague sweeps England, the mysterious and exotic foreign princess, the Lady of Lilies, joins the knights’ tourneys and entrances all. But behind the silks and veils is Edith, a serf turned princess determined to save her people by any means necessary. Her secrets are safe until a bold, daring knight — Sir Ranulf of Frendenwyke — captures her attention and her heart. The Lady of Lilies is soon torn between her duty and her love.
