April 22, 2017

Rumors at Court is the latest book by Wendy Blythe Gifford, a 1971 DePauw University graduate who writes using her middle name.  Published by Harlequin, the book is part of the "Royal Weddings" series.

"Widow Valerie of Florham wants nothing more than to forget her abusive marriage and live peacefully at the mercy of no man," notes a synopsis. "She'd never have dreamed of a liaison with handsome Sir Gil Wolford, but then comes a royal decree -- they must wed!  Gil craves military conquest in Castile, far from his haunted past. Marriage to Lady Valerie is the last thing he should want, yet both have truths to hide from the rumormongers at court. They have no choice…and, once wed, the marriage bed changes everything."
