Lionheart by Martha Rofheart is free on Amazon today.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y2S ... TF8&btkr=1 In this version, it is his fictional mistress, Blondelza, who is a major POV. Rofheart was a big HF author back in the 60s, a competent entertainer, although perspectives may have changed since she did her research. I enjoyed her take on Henry V.

Thanks Emily, I downloaded Lionheart the other day.

Today Heaven's Fire by Patricia Ryan is free on Amazon UK. Silken Threads by the same author was a decent enough historical romance.
