New York Times bestselling author Virginia Henley weaves an enchanting tale of passion and intrigue in England's Golden Age-where a woman's reckless search for adventure leads her to the man destined to claim her...

Catherine Seton Spencer, a young maiden of Queen Elizabeth's court, is cursed with impulsiveness. When she meets Patrick Hepburn, who's visiting the court after a tour of duty patrolling the Scottish borderlands, Cat thinks he's an arrogant brute-and Patrick thinks Cat's a spoiled shrew. Divided by loyalties and society, but bound by desire that drives them into each other's arms, Cat and Patrick find themselves in an intricate web of deceit and danger that threatens to topple the throne-and tear the lovers apart.

About the Author:

Virginia Henley is a New York Times bestselling author and the recipient of numerous awards, including the Romantic Times Lifetime Achievement Award. Her novels have been translated into fourteen languages. A grandmother of three, she lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, with her husband.

From Publishers Weekly:

Take two headstrong protagonists with divergent backgrounds and throw in a dash of mysticism and some weighty historical events, and you get this meaty, occasionally overwritten romance set in Elizabethan England. Beautiful but impulsive Catherine Spencer is a court maiden with an impressive pedigree and an even more impressive dowry, one that rough-edged Patrick Hepburn, a Scottish lord with the gift of prophetic visions, would like to get his hands on. When the marginalized king of Scotland implores Hepburn to envision the fate of the English crown after Queen Elizabeth's death, he sees Cat in his mind's eye, implicates her in his destiny and vows to apprehend and "tame" her, as his entrée into English nobility. The cultured Englishwoman and the blunt Scot inevitably clash at first sight, with Hepburn calling Cat a "spoiled little bitch" and Cat dubbing him an "offensive swine." Gradually, however, the sparring pair capitulate to lust and love. History is not just backdrop; invoked in key narrative threads, it keeps the plot taut and textured. Henley (Undone, etc.) succeeds in creating an atmosphere of impending social cataclysm that enhances the lovers' sense of urgency and embeds their English-Scottish union in a more epochal context. As twists of fate contrive to keep the two apart—intrigue, backstabbing, the bubonic plague—readers will hanker for them to live happily ever after.
