    this was a surprise! Very good book steeped in history. Many plot twist made it quite suspense filled. I liked the main characters, both were strong willed and stood up to each other. Hot love scenes, political intrigue, two kings each desiring the lands and wealth within Aville. The beautiful and half french, half english herione is sought after by both sides of this conflict. Adrien a scottish warrior, raised in England as a knight to King Edward is ordered to wed her. it's a great read.

    : 4 Review: "The King's Pleasure" by Heather Graham

    : 4
    Review:


    "The King's Pleasure" by Heather Graham was a good historical fiction romantic that I found very interesting as well as a entertaining long read. "The King's Pleasure" can be found to be well written that will keep you reading till the end. This hero Adrien and the heroine Danielle were really made for each other but will this work out? Be ready for a 'tug of war' that seems to go on continually in this read...whether its on the battle fields ..of the Scotsmen,Englishmen, Frenchmen... and as these two people that will only keep you on the edge of your seat reading to find out what is going on.


    Each of the characters were very "spirited and independent" but also a bit complexed in the way they maintained their own loyalties. Be ready for a read of long fighting scenes that shares a real description of this historical time.
    What secrets will finally come out from this novel? This is where I say you must pick up "The King's Pleasure" to get all the these questions answered and just what is going on in this good read.


    If you are looking for a good long historical fiction romantic that is full of action with many twist and turns ...you have come to the right place and yes I would recommend "The King's Pleasure" for you.

    Hott Review:

    The major theme of this book is a girl/woman who fights against herself. She’s fighting her love of an Englishman to keep a deathbed promise – or is she?

    This book almost deterred me because it’s huge and I generally do not like long books. However, Ms. Graham drew me right in and gave me the romance of a lifetime. It was humorous, authentic, and adventurous.

    A Rare Hidden Gem

    The King’s Pleasure by Heather Graham is a rare hidden gem.  Taking place in the 1300s in Europe, this is not your typical smell the roses romance.  There is a lot of fighting throughout the novel with the English king and the French king constantly battling along with the two main characters, Adrien Maclachlan and Danielle D’Aville.

    Danielle D’Aville’s town was conquered by the English when Adrien Maclachlan, a Scottish lad who was ten at the time, found a way to breach the walls.  Danielle hated Adrien from that time forward, while Adrien became the English king’s right-hand man.  After Danielle’s mother dies, she becomes the king’s ward and with the king wanting to reward Adrien, he bestowed many titles and lands on him along with Danielle’s hand in marriage.  From that day forward, Danielle and Adrien butted heads at every turn.  Danielle was trying to protect the French king, while Adrien furtively defended the English king.  How can this marriage work when they both hate each other so much? How can it work with Danielle going behind Adrien’s back to commit treason against the English king?

    This novel for me was a little hard to get into and understand what was going on.  However, after a few chapters, you get a hang of the flow of the novel and who all the characters are and you instantly fall in love and can’t put it down until you are finished.  Heather Graham writes delish romance novels that don’t fit easily into the clique romance category.  If you like Heather Graham’s writing or you just love romance novels, I highly recommend giving The King’s Pleasure a read.

    History but poor romance

    I respect the author, but though the history was well detailed, the romance fell flat for me. I never got their chemestry, and got a bit tired of the heroine's antagonistic position. Plus having her fight with a real sword as written seemed unbelievable. I had to force myself to finish it hoping for a payoff that never came.
