The fur has been flying at Friarsgate Manor ever since Philippa’s unhappy return from London. In truth, Rosamund Bolton is pleased her daughter is no longer engaged to the young fool who has, momentarily broken her heart. Rosamund knows her feisty daughter needs a man to tame her- like Crispin St. Clair, the Earl of Witton. When he offers his hand in marriage Philippa agrees, knowing that if nothing else, the marriage will bring her back to the royal court where she can once again attend Queen Katherine.
Imagine Philippa’s surprise to find that just a mere glance from her seductive husband is enough to glance from her deductive husband is enough to make her weak with desire. Crispin’s unbridled passion for his beautiful bride brings them both unimaginable please. But when Philippa stumble upon a plot to assassinate King Henry VIII, she stands to lose the love of her life. For Crispin must protect his sovereign...to the death.
