Jane Feather Books Overview
Dear Reader,Almost Innocent is a romance that is particularly dear to me, with a hero*ine who surprised me with her strength and resourcefulness, and a hero who will always be one of my favorites. Growing up behind the impenetrable walls of an English fortress, young Magdalen does not know that she is the illegitimate daughter of a powerful English prince and his murdered French mistress or that she has been a pawn in the struggle between England and France ever since she slipped from her dying mother’s womb. All she knows is that she longs for excitement. And then one day, as if in answer to her prayers, the splendid figure of Guy de Gervais, a true knight in shining armor, rides into her cloistered world and spirits her away. For Magdalen it is love at first sight. The one and only love of her life. Yet Guy sees only his responsibility to keep Magdalen safe until she can be wed to his nephew and thus fulfill her political destiny. Then duty calls Guy to the bloody battlefields of France, and when he returns, time has transformed Magdalen into a stunningly sensual beauty. Suddenly the noble knight is fighting the fiercest battle of his life: against a searing desire for a woman he cannot have.I hope that you will be thrilled by Magdalen and Guy’s passionate love story, and that you will have as much pleasure reading it as I had writing it.

Dear Reader,When I first saw her, I realized that the miniature portrait I had shown to the king did not do her justice. Lady Guinevere Mallory’s beauty transcended even a portrait painter s skill. It was nearly impossible to believe that this woman, who had buried four husbands before her thirtieth birthday, could have used murder and the dark arts of witchcraft to achieve her great wealth.I carried the king s writ to investigate Lady Guinevere s oft repeated widowhood. Was it mere coincidence that each death had left her wealthier than the last? The fact that I believed she also held lands that rightfully belonged to my family made my investigations all the more personal and all the more thorough. Surely, I thought, such a woman would bear some obvious mark of treachery on her countenance, in her manner. But when we met I saw only the beauty of her pale blond hair and her deep violet eyes that seemed to me to offer a glimpse into the intriguing world of her brilliant mind and spirit. I began to wonder how the gentle hands of such an elegant woman, whose cool composure belied her dubious past, could have committed cold blooded murder. Now as I learn more about the mysterious widow, I find myself growing more curious about the secrets of her heart and more determined to reveal those secrets. Guinevere is the most captivating and intriguing woman I have ever met. I have but one question: Will my interest in her prove to be a fatal one? Hugh of Beaucaire

Pen sensed from the first that Owen d Arcy was an infinitely dangerous man. What she couldn t comprehend was why a man of his ilk, a man who moved through the courtier s world withsupreme confidence a man whose skill with a rapier was that of a trained assassin would be interested in her. Yet the thought of it sent shivers of excitement coursing through her. And then, in a heartbeat, Pen realized that Chevalier d Arcy was exactly the man she needed, the one man who could help her solve the mystery that had tormented her for too long. But when Pen seeks to recruit him, he proffers a deal she cannot refuse: If she agrees to divulge any information that might be of interest to him, Owen will help unearth the truth behind her own haunting secret one in which innocence, birth, loss, and deception collide.

And now, as she turns spy and Owen turns detective, both will find themselves drawn into more peril than either imagined…

For that, he is convinced he needs a well to do, well connected wife. Little does Chastity know that if she ever learned the selfless truth, the handsome doctor just might steal her heart. And if Douglas ever lifted the veil that covers this mysterious woman, he might discover his perfect match.

At Queen Elizabeth’s palace, intrigue abounds. And when a naive girl with a gift for keen observation enters the court, she can hardly imagine the role she will play in bringing England-indeed, the whole of Europe-to the brink of war. Nor can she foresee her own journey to the brink of ecstasy and beyond…
When she becomes a junior lady of Queen Elizabeth’s bedchamber, Rosamund is instructed by her cousin, the brilliant and devious secretary of state Sir Francis Walsingham, to record everything she observes. Her promised reward: a chance at a good marriage. But through her brother Thomas, Rosamund finds herself drawn to the forbidden, rough-and-tumble world of theatre, and to Thomas’s friend, the dramatic, impetuous playwright Christopher Marlowe. And then Rosamund meets Will Creighton-a persuasive courtier, poet, and would-be playwright who is the embodiment of an unsuitable match.
The unsanctioned relationship between Rosamund and Will draws the wrath of Elizabeth, who prides herself on being the Virgin Queen. Rosamund is sent in disgrace to a remote castle that holds Elizabeth’s cousin Mary Stuart, the imprisoned Queen of Scots. Here, Walsingham expects Rosamund to uncover proof of a plot against Elizabeth. But surely, nothing good can come of putting an artless girl in such close proximity to so many seductive players and deceptive games. Unless, of course, Rosamund can discover an affinity for passion and intrigue herself…
