The Pawn — The King’s Cousins Book 1

1338 A.D. – Exiled to a con­vent after her father’s exe­cu­tion for trea­son, Kate­lyn de Blays has fleet­ing mem­o­ries of the man she adored and the out­side world. When her brother’s search leads him to find­ing Kate­lyn after many years, she is eager to leave with Lan­don and begin a new life. He brings her to the court of her cousin, Edward III, who betroths Kate­lyn to a pow­er­ful earl of Northum­bria, using her as a polit­i­cal pawn to show his con­tin­ued sup­port of his north­ern noble­men.

When Sir Nicholas Man­dev­ille returns from patrolling his family’s lands along the Scot­tish bor­der, he dis­cov­ers his father has died—and left a widow—whom his uncle wed Nicholas to by proxy in his absence. Angry at becom­ing the Earl of North­mere and hav­ing no choice regard­ing his wife, Nicholas vows to leave the wid­ow untouched until he knows whether or not she car­ries his father’s child.

When Nicholas los­es his heart to this brave, young woman, he is aston­ished to learn Kate­lyn wish­es for their union to be annulled. Can he con­vince Kate to remain­wed to him—or will Nicholas sac­ri­fice his own hap­pi­ness and let the enig­mat­ic beau­ty go?
