Plaint for Provence ebook
Book 3 of the award-winning Historical Fiction series The Troubadours Quartet
1152: Les Baux de Provence. Medieval France comes to life in a historical page-turner full of intrigue, romance, and adventure! As feuding lords gather in Provence, the troubadours, Estela and her lover, Dragonetz, are plunged into a power struggle that could destroy the fragile peace.
The visit of the Comte du Barcelone to Les Baux sparks bitter memories of the recent civil war and Lady Etiennette des Baux has no intention of ceding to her overlord. Nor does she plan to remain a widow and she sets her sights on Dragonetz, offering him Provence as an incentive. With good friends on both sides, Dragonetz weaves a precarious path through the rival factions at court. Behind the chivalry of hunt and tournament war threatens.
Meanwhile, Estela faces her own demons. Confronted with her childhood abusers, threatened and attacked, she confides in her friends. Unfortunately, one of those friends is Dragonetz' worst enemy and Estela has no idea of what he is capable.
In this third volume of the Troubadours Quartet, Jean Gill, the 'master of historical intrigue', continues to weave the gripping adventures of Dragonetz and Estela seamlessly into real historical events.
