With a sovereignty the noblewomen around her cannot know, she must navigate a world of Royal privilege, courtly intrigue and rumors of a York Prince's return, to retake his rightful throne.

"Flows beautifully, vivid and colorful. I could actually see and hear it as though I were there. Cinematic word pictures, and not just the physical descriptions, but the emotions felt by the characters. You must be English, (British); you have to be. It could also be that you are a reincarnated soul from that era, which gives you an uncanny ability to tell the story so well. I find your writing hard to pull away from, even when I'm tired. It is a delightful read. There's also a thick tension in your writing, very fitting of its Royal class of characters. I already have a crush on Maggie."
