Queen in all but name, one woman´s battle to rule her kingdom, from the Court of Jerusalem to the glorious city of Byzantium. Melisende was the oldest daughter of Baldwin of Jerusalem, a princess of the Franks and, since she had no brothers, heir to the Crusader Kingdom. The crown would go to the man who married her, and after to her son. But Melisende was a strong woman; the law that forced her to marry instead of taking the crown in her own name was a thorn in her side. It was she who ruled the City and who juggled the politics of church and court. The knights of Jerusalem fought in her honour, many of the best sworn to her personal service. She would not submit easily to a husband´s rule, but must she to secure her kingdom? A gripping adventure telling the forgotten story of the notorious matriarch of 12th-century Jerusalem, Queen of Swords is perfect for fans of Elizabeth Chadwick and Conn Iggulden.

A brand new stand-alone spin-off from the Billionaire´s Obsession series, the first novella in the Left at the Altar series! You met Lia and Zeke in Billionaire Unloved, Jett and Ruby´s book. Now you can find out what happened to them. Did Lia really marry the wrong guy? Lia: I thought I had my life all worked out. My wedding had been meticulously planned. All I had to do was walk down the aisle and get married to the man I´d been engaged to for more than a year. Pretty easy and uncomplicated, right? Unfortunately, all my well-laid plans go up in smoke when my fiance leaves me at the church alone because he found a woman who was better suited for his snobby world of wealth and privilege. Problem is, I really have to get married. All my hopes and dreams are dependent on me tying the knot by my 28th birthday, and the date is closing in fast. As usual, my best friend, Zeke Conner, is there to pick up the pieces when I get jilted by a jerk. He helps me work through the demoralizing event so I can put it behind me and move on. But when he offers to marry me himself, I´m stunned. But it´s a bargain I can´t really refuse. As my relationship changes with my best friend, I find myself caught in a web of sensual desire and unending passion that´s as terrifying as it is satisfying. Probably because it seems all too real. But our arrangement was supposed to be temporary. A deal between friends so we´d both benefit. What will happen when it all ends? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elizabeth Powers.
