Straight-talking Constance is a joy – funny and fearless. When she met d’Artagnan, she finally found the adventure and romance she’d been craving during her long years stuck in an uneventful marriage.
Now she and d’Artagnan are married – but they’ve spent the last four years apart, separated by war.
While her husband battles the Spanish, Constance runs the Garrison in her usual formidable style, championing and protecting the new Musketeer cadets. It’s not easy feeding them all while negotiating the black market, or comforting the widows of those recruits who don’t come back from the war – but compassionate, unflinching Constance is the right woman for the job.
All the same, the challenge has affected her more deeply than she’d care to admit to anyone other than her unlikely confidante, Queen Anne.
D’Artagnan’s long-awaited return to the Garrison will be emotional, but he’s in for a surprise. Constance isn’t ready to return to a life of domesticity or to bring new life into this turbulent world – at least not yet.
