Product Details

Praise

"An entertaining cross between a swashbuckling historical romance and a mystery novel.  The heroine is spunky, the courtiers scheme and truckle, capes swirl, daggers flash and horses gallop."
Portland Oregonian

"Poison, double-cross, betrayal, sibling rivalry and a mass murder plan are believably made the stuff of Elizabethan times. Harper delivers a detailed look at the era and the people."
Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

"A walk side by side with one of history’s most dynamic characters."
–Anne Perry, bestselling author of Brunswick Gardens

"Harper’s lively and well-written story pits two clever adversaries in plots and counterplots encompassing disguises, herbal lore, castle breaking, moat jumping, crazed revenge and lots of poison."
Portsmouth Herald

"A vivid, well-paced foray into Elizabethan England."
The Columbus Dispatch

"Impressively researched."
Los Angeles Times

"Captivating."
Mostly Murder
