When Prince William and Kate Middleton married, the Harlequin Historical line released a series of short stories that looked back at British royal weddings of the past. I was invited to participate, but had too many deadlines on my plate at the time. I loved the idea, though, and I envisioned a full-length book using the premise. I did consider a wide range of possibilities, including weddings of Queen Victoria’s many children, but the medieval court of Edward III is familiar territory and feels like family. Unlike most royals, his two oldest children married for love, so that seemed to be a natural fit.
