Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Loyal Servant. Devoted Friend. Perfect target.

Rumor has linked Queen Elizabeth I to her Master of Horse, Robin Dudley. And what rumors, at that: but for his ailing wife, Amy, Dudley would wed her majesty, the gossipmongers are whispering. To quell idle tongues, Elizabeth dispatches Ursula Blanchard to tend to the sick woman's needs. But not even Ursula can prevent the "accident" that takes Amy's life. Did she fall or was she pushed? Was Ursula a pawn of Dudley and the Queen?

Suddenly Ursula finds herself at the center of the scandal, trying to protect Elizabeth as she loses her heart to a Frenchman who may be flirting with sedition against her Queen. She can trust no one, neither her lover nor her monarch, as she sets out to find the truth in a glittering court that conceasls a wellspring of blood and lies.

Synopsis:

Set in Queen Elizabeth I's court, this compelling historical debut mystery introduces Ursula Blanchard, a widowed young mother who has become lady-in-waiting to the queen. In "To Shield the Queen", Ursula finds herself at the center of a plot that could disgrace and threaten Her Majesty.
