Giveaway KNIGHT OF PLEASURE by Margaret Mallory!

I haven't had the chance to read and review this yet but I don't want to delay the Giveaway!!

Now we are fortunate to have the second "knight" book!

2nd Book in All the King’s Men Series

Publisher: Grand Central

Lady Isobel Hume is an expert swordswoman who knows how to choose her battles. When the king asks her to wed a French nobleman to form a political alliance, she agrees. But that's before the devilishly charming Sir Stephen Carleton captures her heart-and tempts her to betray her betrothed, her king, and her country.
Sir Stephen Carleton enjoys his many female admirers-until he dedicates himself to winning the lovely Isobel. When a threat against the king leads Isobel into mortal danger, Stephen must prove that he is more than a knight of pleasure ... and that love can conquer all.

  1. I enjoy the action in this genre and need the entertainment gotten from it. I average 15-20 books a month about 1/3 are medieval. Edward60 following

  2. It's weird you should ask. I'm not sure what draws me to that era. Clothes are one, but that can't be why I'm drawn to the genre. Maybe because it's so different.

    I am a follower. And I tweeted about it here:

  3. Why do i like the medieval genre? Hmm... maybe because it's historic and i love everything about history.

  5. What I like best about the medieval genre is that it takes me into a whole new era that I know nothing about and it fascinates me. I would LOVE to be entered in your draw. Thanks!

  6. I just became a follower of your blog.

  7. The medieval genre always reminds me of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. I just love reading those stories; the men were so brave.

  8. Thanks for featuring my book! What I love about writing in the medieval period--other than the handsome knights--is that it lends itself so well to adventurous, high-stakes tales with themes of loyalty and honor.

  9. Oh I loved the 1st book :). I really like the knights and castles and fair maidens ;). I like the dress and such as well and the jousting tournaments (and dragons).

  13. Hi Martha,

    I love the medieval genre because knights are, in a lot of ways, a lot like cowboys--and you know how I feel about cowboys. I think Deborah Macgillivray was the one who brought this up on a discussion we were having, and after that, it just "clicked"--medieval romance and historical western romance are my two favorite genres and they have a lot in common. And I love Margaret Mallory's books. She really has a way of making you feel like you are inside the character's heads, and I like that.

  14. I like it for several reasons. The period dress, the heroic feats, history (lessons), and so much more... Plus, it's a world away from my everyday life... weeshenanigans (at) gmail (dot) com
