Defender Of The Realm is a rousing, historical-based action adventure. The castle-town of Dansford is one of many such outposts along the Welsh frontier charged with the protection of English subjects by the authority of King Henry II. For Lord William Marleigh, the smooth operation of Dansford is only half of his problems. He must also find a suitable marriage for his son, Stephen.
A daring attack upon the castle changes everything when a hapless merchant inadvertently becomes a hero. He and Stephen become friends and embark on a journey to meet Stephen’s betrothed. Through a series of mistaken identities, she believes that the merchant, James, is her intended. Before Stephen can set things right, he is made privy to new information regarding the Welsh attack, and for the sake of the realm, he must race to London, and inform the King. Left on his own, James must fend for himself in a world of nobility and manners, where one wrong slip of the tongue could be the death of him.
Defender Of The Realm is an exciting and often humorous ride through England of old that breaks down the social barriers of class distinction by examining what truly makes one noble. It’s the adventure of a lifetime!
