Elizabeth Chadwick is without doubt the Queen of Medieval Fiction. A Marriage of Lions is captivating; a beautifully written thirteenth century epic inhabited by memorable personalities who step from the past and feel gloriously present.

An even greater than expected treat! Elizabeth Chadwick's work always delivers a combination of faultless historical research and astonishing insight. A Marriage of Lions turns the spotlight on one of the greatest heiresses of her generation, and her surprisingly successful arranged marriage to the King's notoriously unpopular half- brother. An unmitigated joy.
*Sara Cockerill, author of Eleanor of Aquitaine and Eleanor of Castile*
Elizabeth Chadwick is a master at bringing history to life and making the characters live and breathe for today's readers. Fascinating history, the political concerns of war and the domestic concerns of medieval married life are welded together seamlessly.
*Deborah Swift, author of The Poison Keeper*
Elizabeth Chadwick has a knack of getting into the heads and hearts of her characters, so that her books are impossible to put down. A Marriage of Lions is not to be missed, shining a light on the 13th century; the complex political manoeuvring, but also the family dynamics that coloured the politics.
*Sharon Bennett Connolly*
When I read Elizabeth Chadwick's novels I always feel as if I'm looking through a window onto actual historical events, her writing is so vivid, and her research so superb. The portrait of William and Joanna's marriage, which grows and thrives despite the travails of war and terror, is quite masterful.
