In the autumn of 1299, as part of a treaty of peace between England and France, Marguerite, the nineteen-year-old sister of the French king, marries her brother's enemy, the elderly Edward I, king of England. She expects nothing from this marriage other than a lifetime of duty and obedience, but Edward is a man experienced in the art of pleasing a woman and he awakens unexpected passions in his young bride. Heedless of her mother's warnings about the dangers facing a second wife, Marguerite is consumed with jealousy when she discovers a rival for her husband's affections, a woman whose power and influence she can have no hope of defeating. Marguerite believes she is content until she comes to desire a man who is not her husband and whose interests run counter to those of the king. When the quicksands of a Scottish war open beneath her feet and her beloved stepson finally rebels against his father, she is engulfed in a world of treachery, murder and hideous bloody revenge

Paris 1325. Margaret has been a widow for eleven years and doesn't expect a second chance at happiness. When it comes she seizes it with both hands. While Edward II's queen, Isabella, plots vengeance on the man who has taken her place at her husband's side, Margaret's cousin, Roger Mortimer, arrives in Paris. Mortimer is the king's most dangerous enemy and is soon sharing lodgings with the queen. Back in England Margaret and her new husband watch in horror as Isabella and Mortimer seize power in the name of the king's 14-year old son. Imprisonment, abdication and death follow and in the ensuing turmoil Margaret uncovers a dangerous secret. But she doesn't know who is a friend and who is an enemy, or where her husband's loyalties lie
