love beckons at the French royal court. A 100-page short story by the author of
the award-winning Anne of Brittany Series.


In 1509
Marguerite d’Angoulême of the royal House of Valois is the King of France’s
most valuable unmarried asset. Gaston de Foix is France’s most promising young
knight, eager to prove himself on the King’s Italian campaigns.


Fanned by
chivalric ideals of courtly love, Marguerite and Gaston burn for each other
with a secret flame. When Gaston learns that the King intends to marry
Marguerite to the Armagnac heir, he is heartbroken. Louis XII needs Armagnac
lands for the crown of France. What better way to achieve his aim than through
the heir that Marguerite will create as wife to the head of the House of
Armagnac, mingling bloodlines with the House of Valois?


Gaston begs the
King to allow him to marry Marguerite. But Louis XII’s plans are firm. Relaying
his despair to Marguerite, Gaston swears she will always be his one true love.
Pledging their troth to each other in a secret ceremony, only weeks remain
before Marguerite’s marriage separates them forever.


Marguerite has
no choice but to obey her king. Yet raised in the heady fumes of Renaissance
self-determination, she longs to seize fate in her own hands. Will she attain
her heart’s desire before duty calls?
