Emma Campion is the Author of The King's Mistress and did her graduate Work in medieval and Anglo-Saxon literature. She is currently living in Seattle. 

First let me start by saying that A Triple Knot is a very witty title and so right away I liked the book. I absolutely love the conflict coming from multiple places going on, and the character Joan is amazing. I can't help but like that this is a historical romance, and it is one that's done well. Emma Campion really does put a lot of research into making this book historically accurate. If you liked Edwin High King of Britain or The Vicar's Wife you'll like this book.
