Read full description of the books Prince of Darkness:AD 1193. England lies uneasy, a land without a king. Richard the Lionheart has not returned from Crusade, his brother John conspires to usurp the crown. On the throne, in the Lionheart's stead, sits Eleanor of Aquitaine. She is determined to prevent the outbreak of civil war, but there are few she can trust. Justin de Quincy - a man without title or land - is one of the few.
December: As the Queen's man, de Quincy has already encountered Prince John's murderous intrigues. But now the King's brother has asked for his aid. John tells of a document implicating him in a plot to kill his brother. Despite his hunger for the crown, John swears he is innocent. He must find the forger and prove the document false before the Lionheart hears of it.
It takes more than John's sly charms to persuade Justin, but the welfare of the Queen is also at stake. This concession will take him to a bloody chamber on Mont-Saint-Michel, a deadly encounter in a Paris cemetery, and, ultimately, to the unraveling of a conspiracy that might have changed the course of history.

The mysteries did not enjoy the same success as her "straight" historical novels, to which she returned in 2002, with Time and Chance, again covering the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry II. In 2008, she published Devil's Brood, the final book in her trilogy about Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, and her latest novel,about their son, Richard Coeur de Lion, titled Lionheart. will be published in the US in October of 2011, Down Under in November of 2011, and in the UK in March of 2012.
