Blood of The Red Rose



A 5 star read.

This book is set during the War of the Roses, The characters are mostly real , but the author has added the heroine as an illegitimate daughter to The Earl of Warwick Richard Neville. Sometimes called the King Maker.
Our hero is Edmund Beaufort known to his friends and family as Beau, a very loyal subject to the Lancastrian throne . He is in exile with Queen Marguerite and Prince Edward. He is a man with no doubts over where his loyalty lies. He is also very much in favour with the ladies. He has lost his father and older brother to the cause, but his younger brother is in exile with him. His job is to train the young Prince while his father is imprisioned.
Our heroine is Kathrine Neville, A daughter that Warwick brought into his wife´s household to be raised with her half sisters. She is very much the daughter of his heart. He doesn´t have to worry about finding her a husband that will help him in his political maneuvering. The Earl of Warwick has changed his alliance to the Lancastrian side of the war .He already has one daughter married to George The Duke of Clarence. Who is on the York side of the war. When he manages to get his younger daughter married to the young Prince Edward.
The trials of the war on the loyalties of all concerned is shown in this story . The problems the main characters have trying to find time for themselves without damaging Kathrine´s reputation or upsetting a very volatile Queen.It´s an emotional journey . I cried all through the last few pages.
This book is a must for true medieval romance fans.
