Living breath-to-breath beneath the shadow of violence,
Italian perfumer and apothecary Allegra Grimaldi was forced
to learn the killing arts from the Hand of Godâ€”a religious
assassin. She has sworn never to use her deadly skills, but
now a blackmailer has her by the proverbial throat.
To save her family from an ugly death, she must do the
unthinkable. Infiltrate the court of King Henry VIII,
poison the heretic Anne Boleyn before she becomes queenâ€”and
frame Anneâ€™s bastard brother for the crime. Honest and
principled, Sir Joscelin is the perfect pawn.
Allegra is clever, captivatingâ€¦and her warning to Anne
immediately rouses Joscelinâ€™s suspicion. Sworn to protect
his sister, and striving for recognition from the powerful
father who disdains him, Joscelin has no choice but to put
aside his attraction to the mysterious lady and gather
evidence to see her burn for witchcraft.
To avert a disaster that will change the face of Europe,
this stalwart soldier of incorruptible integrity and the
fallen woman who breathes deception must learn to trust
each otherâ€”and discover the one truth that could save them
