teaser Tuesday: Knight of Pleasure by Margaret Mallory


TEASER TUESDAYS : hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading ~



Teaser :

Northumberland, England
1409

"Which of you brave Knights of the Round Table will fight me?" Isobel called out.

"Me! Choose me! Isobel, choose me!"

~ Opening paragraph of the prologue, “Knight of Pleasure ARC (All the King's Men, Book 2)" by Margaret Mallory

*Note that this is the advanced reader edition, and the final book may be slightly different.


About the Book (from the back cover):

THE GREATEST PASSION
Lady Isobel Hume is an expert swordswoman who knows how to choose her battles. When the king asks her to wed a French nobleman to form a political alliance, she agrees. But that's before the devilishly charming Sir Stephen Carleton captures her heart-and tempts her to betray her betrothed, her king, and her country.

IS WORTH THE GREATEST PERIL
Sir Stephen Carleton enjoys his many female admirers-until he dedicates himself to winning the lovely Isobel. So when a threat against the king leads Isobel into mortal danger, Stephen has a chance to prove that he is more than a knight of pleasure...and that love can conquer all.

I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers! ~ Wendi
