The Sixth Surrender

About the Book

The Sixth Surrender

It's Anno Domini 1200 --- and medieval mayhem ensues when the octogenarian queen-duchess Aliénor of Aquitaine launches her final, and deadliest, dynastic chess game: to safeguard the crowns of Normandy and England for John Plantagenet, her last surviving son.

Her pawns are Juliana de Charnais, a plain and pious novice, and Guérin de Lasalle, an enigmatic mercenary knight. Lasalle has no intention of being a husband to the shy young woman, nor to become entangled in John’s own matrimonial mire. But at the heart of Aliénor's scheme is the mystery of his own past that could cost John his thrones --- and Juliana her life.
