#68-SKP's Lionheart. I would have to say this was one of my favorites of her Angevin books. While Eleanor plays such a small role, Joanna and Berengaria more than make up for it.

#69 EC's Defy a King-it was ok, I think I would like it better if I hadn't just read the Marshall books and For the King's Favor. Those covered all of the same time period!

Maybe I have it wrong but I thought 'To Defy a King' and 'For the Kings Favour' were the same book but with different titles? I have read 'To Defy a King' but did not buy the other one for I heard that it was the same? Hmm *scratches head* :confused:

I think it's actually 'Time of Singing' and 'For the King's Favor' which are the same book.

Thanks ladies.
I'm going by memory now for I thought I read in one review on Amazon a warning that 'To Defy A King' was the same book as 'For the Kings Favour'. The title change came about because of the American market(I don't know why they do that because it is confusing!). I will go and check.
