Katherine Sedley lived by her own rules and loved who she
pleased- until she became the infamous mistress of King
London, 1675: Born to wealth and privilege, Katherine is
introduced to the decadent court of King Charles II, and
quickly becomes a favorite from the palace to the bawdy
playhouses. She gleefully snubs respectable marriage to
become the Duke of York's mistress. But Katherine's life of
carefree pleasure ends when Charles II dies, and her lover
becomes King James II.
Suddenly she is cast into a tangle of political intrigue,
religious dissent, and ever-shifting alliances, where a
wrong step can mean treason, exile, or death at the
executioner's block. As the risks rise, Katherine is forced
to make the most perilous of choices: to remain loyal to the
king, or to England.
