Shadow on the Crown free pdf A rich tale of power and forbidden love revolving around a young medieval queen

In 1002, fifteen--year-old Emma of Normandy crosses the Narrow Sea to wed the much older King Athelred of England, whom she meets for the first time at the church door. Thrust into an unfamiliar and treacherous court, with a husband who mistrusts her, stepsons who resent her and a bewitching rival who covets her crown, Emma must defend herself against her enemies and secure her status as queen by bearing a son.

Determined to outmaneuver her adversaries, Emma forges alliances with influential men at court and wins the affection of the English people. But her growing love for a man who is not her husband and the imminent threat of a Viking invasion jeopardize both her crown and her life.

Based on real events recorded in the "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" and the perfect antidote to Tudor fatigue, "Shadow on the Crown" is packed with nonstop action, romance, and plenty of deliciously creepy Gothic flavor.
