1342 A.D. — Spirited away when his father, Adelard de Blays, commits treason, bastard Quill Cardon longs to reclaim his family name when he reaches manhood and reunite with his half-siblings, Landon and Katelyn. Winning the king’s tournament at Smithfield and saving the life of Prince Edward leads to Quill being awarded an earldom and an estate of his own—but what he most desires is Lady Tristanna Willoughby, a woman he can never have.

Tristanna has served for years as a lady-in-waiting to Queen Philippa and has waited for the return of her betrothed, Jarrett Marsden, from the war in France. Tristanna dislikes Jarrett, who chases anything in a skirt, and longs to wed Sir Quill Cardon, an honorable knight who has captured her heart.

When circumstances change, Quill and Tristanna have a chance at happiness—until a man seeking revenge threatens to tear them apart.

Each book in The King’s Cousins Trilogy is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
