Description

Elizabethan glamour and intrigue abound in this heart-pounding Maids of Honor novel, which Kirkus Reviews called "a quick-paced romance" that will "thrill and engage readers with a penchant for history." Beatrice Knowles is a Maid of Honor, one of Queen Elizabeth's secret protectors, who has proven herself to be a valuable asset in the Queen's court--or so she thinks. It has been three weeks since the Maids thwarted a plot to overthrow the Queen, and Beatrice is preparing to wed her betrothed, Lord Cavanaugh. However, her plans come to a crashing halt as rumors of a brewing Scottish rebellion spread among the court. Beatrice's new assignment is to infiltrate the visiting Scottish delegation using her uncanny ability to manipulate hearts. The mission seems simple enough, until the Queen sets Beatrice up for failure by pairing her with the worst of the lot--Alasdair MacLeod. But Alasdair could be the key to unlocking the truth about the rebellion...and her heart. Caught in a web of ever-more-twisting lies, Beatrice must rise up among the Maids of Honor and prove what she's known all along: in a court filled with deception and danger, love may be the deadliest weapon of all.

Review quote

"The well-paced narrative creates a drama of court intrigue laced with treacherous secrets, dangerous liaisons, and passionate embraces. Readers who enjoyed Maid of Secrets (2013) will delight in the return of all five maids and their queen."--Booklist
