A Noble Assassin

(2011)
A novel by

 
A thrilling account of one of English history's missing women during the dark days leading up to the Civil War. She's an old man's darling, a court beauty, the muse of poets. And, on top of it all, she's chief lady-in-waiting to the queen of England. Lucy Russell (nee Harington), Countess of Bedford, had it all. So why did she risk everything to save her friend, the princess, Elizabeth Stuart? Lucy finds herself caught in a world of rough men and fatal plots, including a plan to assassinate Elizabeth's brother, the heir to the English throne. Then she crosses swords with the darkly handsome, Svengali-like Duke of Buckingham, thought by many to be the true ruler of England. Was she merely the bored young wife of a doting older husband, desperate for a little excitement? Or did deep belief drive her to choose a dangerous double life?
