She sat next to Hildred amongst other attendants at a table beside the ladies of Queen Margaret’s council. Some of the young tittered over the men decked out in their finery. Katherine regarded the pompous fools across the room, loud with their own praise, beating their chests and boasting of their magnificent feats. She reminded herself not to wrinkle her nose, no matter how disgusting the pigs grew.

Two men stepped before de Seabrooke, offering congratulations. Ah, yes. Roger Northrop and Nigel Bartram—the three monsters together, just like old times.

She had to give them credit; they had ensconced themselves well into King Edward’s court. Each held high roles and enjoyed the respect afforded councilors. Their nearness to the king complicated matters. The trick was to kill them without risk to her person. It wouldn’t do for her to become imprisoned.


Tormented by King Edward’s brutality against Scottish sympathizers, Drake Fletcher vows revenge, but only a madman single-handedly attacks the Crown. Instead, he enters the royal court as a spy to aid Robert the Bruce’s rise to power and place a formidable leader on Scotland’s throne.

Scottish lass Katherine Mackenzie Armstrong targets three of King Edward’s officers who brutally raped and murdered her mother. Disguised as one of Queen Margaret’s attendants, she sets a course to destroy the men.

The acts of treason both Drake and Katherine commit are punishable by death in The Tower of London but their determination pushes dangerous limits. Considered enemies, they use each other to gain vital information. Neither expect their overwhelming attraction to one another, the staggering emotions stirred. But the closer they become, the more they jeopardize their pledges of vengeance.

Will the weight of retaliation crush them, see them beheaded? Or will Katherine and Drake form an alliance and learn to live and love again?
