“He must be convinced subtly, and that will take time. But when I'm ready to tell the king what I know, it will shake the very foundations of Paris.”
Marci Jefferson, Enchantress of Paris: A Novel of the Sun King’s Court

“God help me, I laughed! I clapped my hands across my mouth, but the thought of the king marrying me was nonsense. D'Argencourt had failed without aspiring so far. And she would by in a convent by dawn. I am doomed.”
Marci Jefferson, Enchantress of Paris: A Novel of the Sun King’s Court
