In the perilous world of kings and queens, she matched ambition with loyalty, ruthless intrigue with consuming passion...

London:1673. With her family ruined by war, penniless
thirteen-year-old Sarah Jennings is overjoyed to be chosen
as a maid of honor at the bawdy Restoration court of
Charles II. She soon wins the trust of Lady Anne of York,
a lonely princess who becomes one of her staunchest
allies. And though Sarahâ€™s beauty stirs the desires of
jaded aristocrats, she wants a grander future for herself
than that of a pampered mistress. Only one man possesses
ambition and passions that match her own: John Churchill,
a dashing young military hero. He would ask for her handâ€”
and win her heart for a lifetimeâ€¦.
But Whitehall Palace is ripe with ever-shifting alliances
and sexual scandal, and Sarah will need all her cleverness
to succeed. Titles, power, and wealth are the prizes,
while an idle whisper in the wrong ear can bring a cry of
treason, and the executionerâ€™s ax. Will Sarahâ€™s loyaltiesâ€“â€“
and her dreamsâ€“â€“falter when a king is toppled from his
throne and a new queen crowned? And will she dare risk
everything when her one true love is tested by a
passionate, dangerous obsession?
