Northumberland, England

Fall, 1417


Young, beautiful, and spirited, Lady Isobel’s innocent childhood comes crashing to an end when she is “sold” into marriage to a disgusting old man by her traitorous father who needed the funding to buy his lands back. For eight years Isobel waited for ancient Lord Hume to expire, and finally that day has arrived. But with it comes the news that Isobel will not inherit the Hume lands and holdings! Isobel has few options. She can marry the dreadful Bartholomew Graham who duped her husband into believing he was his son and now is in possession of what should have been rightfully hers. Or she can travel to King Henry’s court and throw her self on his mercy to find her another husband. When the King decrees Isobel wed a French noble to help bind their two warring factions closer together, Isobel must obey. Then she meets the dashing Sir Stephen Carlton.


Handsome Sir Stephen Carlton, one of King Henry’s most trusted soldiers, is renowned not only for his deadly sword arm, but for his prowess with the ladies in bed. However after meeting the lovely widow Lady Isobel, Stephen vows to win her heart for himself. Stephen has to prove that he is more then just a Knight of Pleasure, and that with love he and Isobel can defeat the conspiracy that threatens their sovereign and country!


On the heels of her highly successful debut romance, Knight of Desire, Margaret Mallory keeps her momentum on the upswing with its sequel Knight of Pleasure. Stephen Carlton is all that can be rolled into the perfect hero and more. Lady Isobel is no shrinking violet, but a fighter both in soul and in use of a sword and dagger. Together this pair is awesome, and Knight of Pleasure is phenomenal!
