The Lion of Mortimer

(The third book in the Plantagenets series)
A novel by

Weak in battle, powerless at court and absent in the bedroom: the English crown has rarely sat less easily than on the head of Edward II.

Inheriting the Plantagenet throne in a powerful position, Edward needs a wife to continue the dynasty - but the beautiful, charming Isabella fails to stir his heart like his close friend Piers Gaveston.

Slighted and ignored, Isabella takes a new lover: the ambitious nobleman Roger Mortimer. Seduced by Mortimer's treachery, Isabella plots with him to murder her husband and take the throne.

With the Plantagenet line in danger of coming to an end, it is up to the young William de Montacute to bring Mortimer down and restore the crown to Edward's son and heir.

The Lion of Mortimer is the third in Juliet Dymoke's dramatic and emotional Plantagenet series, an epic chronicle of love, heroism, loyalty and betrayal bringing to life one of the richest periods in English history: a time of power struggles and compelling courtly intrigue.

For fans of Sharon Penman and Elizabeth Chadwick.
