With colorful portraits of Charles II, Barbara Palmer, Nell Gwyne and their exhilarating lives, Westin moves her exciting story along, filling the pages with vibrant details and intrigue. There's fun, sex, spying, passion
and danger -- everything you need
for a wild historical romance ride.

Ladies' maid Meriel St. Thomas' resemblance to the traitorous wife of Lord Giles, Earl of Warborough, is uncanny, and it makes her the ideal pawn in a game to outwit England's Dutch enemies.

Unbeknownst to Giles, Merry becomes Lady Felice, working as a double agent to feed false information to the Dutch. Her transformation is so perfect that a fascinated Giles abducts his "wife," putting her mission at risk. Being with Giles is a dream come true, until he discovers the truth and plunges them into a battle for London's safety. Through Charles' private rooms to court revelry, the streets of London, the green countryside, abductions, highwaymen and sea battles, Merry and Giles find time to love and fight for their country.
