A refined Scottish courtier. A rugged British spy. And an affair that will change the course of history. Everything changes when the shocking deception is revealed in this seductive novel from USA Today bestselling author Sharon Cullen.
Ladies in waiting can’t help noticing more than they let on. After so many years at the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, Emma Howard sees quite plainly that the royal couple is anything but happy. Reeling from a failed marriage herself, Emma sympathizes with her beloved queen. But the last thing she wants is for the king to be murdered, let alone to witness the shocking act herself. With her whole world turned upside-down, Emma is saved by the quick thinking of a lowly printer . . . who, unbeknownst to her, is one of England’s most daring spies.
At Queen Elizabeth’s behest, Tristan has been stirring discontent against the Scottish nobility. Now that the king is dead, his mission is even more critical. There’s only one complication: the exquisite courtier who’s unexpectedly fallen under Tristan’s protection. Emma rouses his body and his soul. But after she learns that he’s a traitor, the fate of two nations hangs on her response. Tristan’s prepared to risk his life in exchange for hers. Will Emma do the same for the man she’s come to love?

Sharon Cullen has placed the reader in Scotland at the time of the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots and all of the turmoil during that period. She brings the times alive with her descriptive prose and engages you in the characters and their lives. Lady Emma Hamilton is fortunate. She had lost her parents and is taken into the royal court by Queen Mary as a courtier. She accidentally sees a murder and is rescued by none other that Tristan, a lowly printer. But as fate would have it, people are not always as they appear! Tristan is really an English spy sent to Scotland to spy on the Queen. What follows is an intriguing tale that will keep you glued to your seat with all the twist and turns. As Emma and Tristan get to know each other, there is no telling what will happen. This is a well written tale, that although part of a series, can be read as a standalone. I cannot wait to read more from this author and know you will really enjoy this story..
