Rave reviews from Goodreads readers:

"There are hero knights, sword fights, chases, and escapes before all is concluded in this tale loosely based on British history. This is an enjoyable read and one which you read quickly simply because you won't want to put it down." -- Karen M. Goodreads

"There is political intrigue, conspiracies and mysteries in this book. This is well written, believable and exciting. The author does a great job of finding a balance between having a clever plot that keeps you guessing and keeping the plot easy to follow. " -- Richard, Goodreads

"The beauty of this book, though, is the way Mr. Barlog weaves truth and fiction to create a book that was very hard to put down. He takes a bit of license but that is the joy of reading fiction." -- Patty, Goodreads

"This is the first book that I've read from this author and I was really impressed." -- Glen, Goodreads

One woman's courage must decide the fate of the English crown.

The English countryside roils in the throes of political upheaval as King Richard the Lionheart sails from defeat in the Holy Lands. His kingdom teeters on the verge of yet another bloody war-- this one against his own blood. To the victor goes the crown ... with death to the vanquished.

Waylaid and stranded on the continent, Richard must evade capture from his enemies, forcing Princess Joanna and Queen Eleanor to thwart Prince John's play to usurp the throne.

The Heart of the Lion whisks you away to a time long past and places far away, where thundering hooves, clanking swords, passion, and above all else, courage ruled the day.
