Courtly love and chivalrous knights meet passion and deception in the turbulent medieval court of England.

An honorable man:
Malcolm de Monde, Lord of Warwick, needs a wife. He reluctantly journeys to the royal court where his plan is simple: find a dutiful woman, gain the king’s approval for his choice and return to Warwick with his chosen lady wedded, bedded, and carrying his heir—all before winter.

An independent woman:
Judith of Kentworth, Royal Falconer and lady-in-waiting, is a woman from Malcolm’s past. Although she is a confidante of the queen, Judith’s beauty and vivacity attract the unwanted attentions of the king. Judith knows it would be treason to deny the king his desires, and yet she wishes only to escape.

A simple plan…
which goes awry when Lord Malcolm encounters Judith, once betrothed to his friend—and a woman who is nothing like the meek wife he seeks…but who may be exactly the type of woman he needs.

An impossible choice:
Malcolm offers Judith a chance to escape her predicament…but can she risk putting her own chivalrous lord in danger with the king?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This story hit close to my heart. It’s set during the time of my favorite king and queen and Judith is a falconer which is something I love. This is my first time reading Colleen Gleason and it will definitely not be my last!

I was so excited to find out there was another book written in the series and I was not let down. Thanks Colleen! Each book in this series pulls at heart strings, causes you to hold your breath out of fear, and makes you tear up with happiness. I also enjoyed the appearance of characters I have come to love from the earlier books in the series.

*******

I very much enjoyed this book. It is very obvious that Ms. Gleason has a gift that she supports with research into historical material, using it to craft an interesting and enjoyable story. As an avid reader I also appreciate that she has great quality control. I was not distracted by misspelled words (a pet peeve of mine). Her grammar and use of punctuation are spot on.

*******

Colleen combines a great twist of mystery, comedy, love, and history into this medieval period piece. I’ve read many of her period pieces, like this one, and it’s a great comfort that she will create a masterpiece each time.

Colleen Gleason has done it again…A Lily on the Heath is a must read for all Historical Romance readers. It incorporates intrigue, deceit, romance, what more could you ask for?
