King Henry Forces Margaret To Marry
King Henry I is determined to blend his Norman and Saxon subjects into one people—the English—and he is willing to do so by force if necessary. When summoned to Court, Lady Margaret expects to marry a Norman lord of equal or higher rank. However, Henry's queen has her own machinations in store for Margaret.
Unable to refuse the queen, Lady Margaret marries the recently elevated Saxon squire, Alfred. But Alfred's ascension from squire to lord in rank creates enemies on all sides for the new couple.
With rival plots to take his lands, his title, his life and now this stranger to whom he is married, Alfred must battle to keep all he has fought to obtain under this new king.
Will Margaret and Alfred ever have any peace to come together as a couple?
Their story is the emotional, action-packed conclusion to Henry's Spare Queen Trilogy.
