“THE REBEL PRINCESS is a fascinating tale of the lengths courtiers would go to obtain what they seek. Power, money and hopes of destroying more influential men, including the King himself, drive the members of King Phillippe’s court. With her clearheaded thinking, admirable personality and princely ways, Alais is an intriguing character that draws the reader fully into the page. It is wonderful to read about a strong group of women intent on protecting each other and lengths they will go to for their friend’s security. With multiple mysteries that intertwine when least expected, the plot is inviting and intriguing.”

The Rebel Princess is a fast paced historical mystery with plenty of suspense and intrigue…With every turn of the page there is the threat of bloodshed due to the rising conflict between the bishops and the Cathars. Healey does a fantastic job rendering the touching story of the intense bond between Alais and her son…I look forward to more in this series….

“Healey’s attention to historic detail, her rich woven tapestry of settings, characters and plot will delight all readers. If you like Roberta Gellis, Jean Plaidy, Elizabeth Chadwick or Marion Zimmer Bradley, you will love these works.”
