THE QUEEN'S LADY
Combining lush historical detail with a strong love story, Drake sweeps readers away with her graceful prose and sizzling sensuality. The turbulent political era when Mary returns to Scotland is rendered in full-blown color as Drake's passion for her story, the historical background and her characters' desire come to the fore. No wonder she's a fan favorite.
Treachery and danger surround them, and Gwyneth's loyalty and her love are at odds. Will she be led down a path to the executioner, or is her fate in Rowan's hands? (HQN, Nov., 384 pp., $7.99)
