A Lily on the Heath by Colleen Gleason
The fourth book in the Castle Garden Series... From NEW YORK TIMES and USA Today bestselling author Colleen Gleason: passion and deception amid the shadowy court of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II. An honorable man: Malcolm de Monde, Lord of Warwick needs a wife. He reluctantly journeys to the turbulent royal court where his plan is simple: find a dutiful woman, gain the king's approval for his choice and return to Warwick with his lady wedded, bedded, and carrying his heir-all before winter. An independent woman: Judith of Kentworth, Royal Falconer and lady-in-waiting, is a woman from Malcolm's past. Although she is a confidante of the queen, Judith's beauty and vivacity attract the unwanted attentions of the king-and the woman who commands winged predators becomes prey herself. A simple plan that goes awry when Malcolm encounters Judith. Once betrothed to his friend, she's a woman nothing like the meek wife he seeks...but who may be exactly the type of woman he needs. An impossible choice: Malcolm offers Judith a chance to escape her predicament...But can she risk entangling her own personal white knight in a dangerous web of royal intrigue?
Book Length: Novel - 150-320 PagesHistorical fiction is a literary genre in which the narrative takes place in the past. Historical books capture the particulars of the time as correctly as possible to get authenticities, such as societal norms, ways, habits, and traditions. Historical fiction is put in a real location during a culturally recognizable moment. The facts and the actions from the narrative can be a mixture of real occasions and ones in the writer's creativity as they fill in the gaps. Characters may be pure fiction or based on actual people. But what about them and their look and attitudes, how they talk, and issues that they face, everything which should match the era.
