“I was expecting a common bodice ripping historical romance and was happily surprised to find myself immersed in 15th-century intrigue instead.”

Jetta needs to escape …

As a kitchen maid who has finally managed to escape abuse at her master’s hand, she finds herself at the scene of a crime. Now involved in murder. How many times can she her life be turned upside down? Never knowing her parentage, she has struggled alone for too long.

Dominic is a friend of the king…

Enjoying a peaceful life was never his choice, he wanted a change from the monotony. But finding his Farrier murdered, with only a slip of a girl the likely culprit, was possibly taking things too far.

But murder isn’t always what it seems…

Sometimes it can be a revelation. Introducing strangers who would never have met. Revealing secrets kept hidden. Yet murder is still murder. And being arrested for one you had nothing to do with brings more than a few catastrophes, as well as new friends and strange paths to discover.

With the Battle of Bosworth looming…

murder also becomes a terror spread across the fields, the blood and bodies of the slain. And with it a new king, and many changes that effect the country.

Jetta narrowly escapes one trauma after another. As murder and mayhem ensues, unlikely alliances come to her rescue. But where does that leave an impoverished kitchen maid?
