Product description

A fast-paced, passionate tale of treachery, romance and deceit from a multi-award-winning author of historical fiction.

As lady-in-waiting to Mary, Queen of Scots, the beautiful Ginette – known as Jenny – is also the young queen’s closest childhood friend. Growing up in the elegant but ruthless French court, Jenny has always been fiercely loyal to her mistress. But the court is a place of enemies and traitors; not least the jealous, manipulative Catherine de Medici, and Mary’s own scheming half-brother, James. So when Jenny overhears whispers of a plot, closely followed by several unexplained deaths at court, she knows that to save Mary, she must put her own life on the line. But not a soul at court can be trusted. And when she and Mary return to their Scottish homeland for Mary to claim her throne, they face even greater peril. While Jenny battles her growing feelings for charismatic nobleman Duncan Alexander, she is caught up in a silent war of intrigue against those who would slit Mary’s throat to steal her crown.

“A gripping historical thriller from the brilliant Breslin.” The Bookseller
