Katherine Sedley lived by her own rules and loved who she pleased- until she became the infamous mistress of King James II… London, 1675: Born to wealth and privilege, Katherine is introduced to the decadent court of King Charles II, and quickly becomes a favorite from the palace to the bawdy playhouses. She gleefully snubs respectable marriage to become the Duke of York’s mistress. But Katherine’s life of carefree pleasure ends when Charles II dies, and her lover becomes King James II.
