The Sunne in Splendour, a novel about Richard III of England is one of the most popular books on the Historical Novel Society's list of best historical novels.

In 2008, she published Devil's Brood, the final book in her trilogy about Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, and her latest novel,about their son, Richard Coeur de Lion, titled Lionheart. will be published in the US in October of 2011, Down Under in November of 2011, and in the UK in March of 2012.
