Goodreads

A refined Scottish courtier. A rugged British spy. And an affair that will change the course of history. Everything changes when the shocking deception is revealed in this seductive novel from USA Today bestselling author Sharon Cullen.

Ladies in waiting can’t help noticing more than they let on. After so many years at the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, Emma Howard sees quite plainly that the royal couple is anything but happy. Reeling from a failed marriage herself, Emma sympathizes with her beloved queen. But the last thing she wants is for the king to be murdered, let alone to witness the shocking act herself. With her whole world turned upside-down, Emma is saved by the quick thinking of a lowly printer . . . who, unbeknownst to her, is one of England’s most daring spies.

At Queen Elizabeth’s behest, Tristan has been stirring discontent against the Scottish nobility. Now that the king is dead, his mission is even more critical. There’s only one complication: the exquisite courtier who’s unexpectedly fallen under Tristan’s protection. Emma rouses his body and his soul. But after she learns that he’s a traitor, the fate of two nations hangs on her response. Tristan’s prepared to risk his life in exchange for hers. Will Emma do the same for the man she’s come to love?

Lady Emma Hamilton, widow and friend to Queen Mary of Scotland, was abused by her deceased husband and does not trust men. Walking back to Holyrood Palace with her maid, after dinner at a friend’s house, she sees men gathered around what appears to be a body in the orchard nearby and then she is thrown by the explosion in the Kirk o’ Field building. Tristan, a printer, wakens from the blast and runs out to see what has happened. He finds her unconscious and to protect her, takes her back to his rooms above the print shop. When she awakens in a strange place, she learns Lord Darnley, Mary’s husband, was killed the night of the blast. She’s determined to return to the palace and help Mary, but when they walk by the explosion site, she asks to go back to the print shop with him. Tristan teaches her that all men are not like her deceased husband She eventually goes back to the palace but is still uncomfortable with what she knows. She discovered he is more than just a printer. When he is arrested for printing placards, she does everything she can to save him. There is so much more going on and I will not spoil it. There is a HEA and a reunion with some of the people in the first two books. I have truly enjoyed this trilogy, but this one is my favorite. If you like historical romance with some real history, this series is for you.
 
Many thanks to the publisher for giving me this ARC. I was not asked or required to write a review.
