From HRH Princess Michael of Kent, bestselling author of The Queen of Four Kingdoms, comes the eagerly-anticipated third volume in the Anjou trilogy. The final volume of the Anjou trilogy focuses on merchant Jacques Coeur, a man of humble beginnings but fiercely ambitious, who became one of the richest and most powerful men in fifteenth century France. HRH Princess Michael of Kent vividly re-enacts the life of Jacques Coeur as he becomes trusted confidante and champion of the Anjou royal family, particularly of his beloved patroness Yolande, Queen of the Four Kingdoms, and, of course, the beautiful and captivating Agnes Sorel who Jacques comes to know and understand as a friend. As Jacques's star shines brighter and brighter, his story runs parallel to that of Yolande and Agnes Sorel until the three interlink in devastating fashion and Jacques's ambition and generosity become his downfall. Meticulously researched and powerfully evoked, HRH Princess Michael of Kent unveils a seldom told story, enriched by her own insider's perspective of royal life.
«Il sorriso di chi fa sport non è quasi mai un sorriso, è una smorfia. Una smorfia rigida e simmetrica sostenuta da una impalcatura di muscoli talmente precaria che basta la defezione di uno di essi per far diroccare la faccia in una composizione cubista di denti, labbra e zigomi.
Se l'impalcatura regge, è solo per solidarietà con il resto del corpo, teso in uno sforza abnorme, non certo per diletto. Se non regge, è perché ogni muscolo remoto ha ceduto, provocando, come in un effetto-domino, il deflusso del sangue da tutte le altre fibre.»

Katie is torn between her father's ambitions for her and her need to stay with her old coach and team.
This is a boxed set of the first three books in the Bridget Sway series. Beyond Dead: Dead than twenty-four hours, with a job that doesn’t pay, a fashion disaster for a uniform and more afterlife rules than she can shake a stick at, Bridget Sway thinks it’s as bad as it can get.
And then she finds a dead ghost stuffed in her locker ... Deader Still: Bridget Sway has survived the first week of her afterlife – but only just. Working a job that still doesn’t pay, wearing a uniform that’s still a fashion disaster and now facing a week-long assessment, things can only get better … right? Wrong. And there’s another dead ghost in her locker to prove it. A Little More Dead: Having pretty much accepted her fashion disaster of a uniform, her job that doesn’t pay and the fact she’s dead, Bridget Sway is doing okay. That is, until her handsome parole officer’s homicidal ex-ward, Crazy Katie, escapes from a mental institution.
