The Inconvenient Bride is a thriller set in the Middle Ages, at the end of the Hundred Years’ War.
Synopsis of the Inconvenient Bride
In 1457, a wedding could alienate the heir to the French throne. A murder could save him.
On a mission to protect the birthright of the Prince in exile, the future king Louis the XIth, Etienne and his men are tasked with stopping a wedding that will reduce their master’s power indefinitely … and they will stop at nothing to achieve their goal.
Under cover and by force, with trickery and deception, they seize villages and castles, form false alliances and enlist the force of an army of brutal, rogue bandits with neither leader nor cause. Culminating in an epic battle, they plan not only to stop the wedding of that inconvenient bride, but to eliminate the Prince’s enemies once and for all.
… But their powerful adversaries will not go down without a fight.
The Inconvenient Bride is the first book published by the author. As in all his books, the author immerses himself in the daily life of ordinary people, to give substance to intrigues with a background of murders or conspiracies.
The French reedition in February 2021 and its translation into English in 2021 allow us to consider a sequel to this book.
