Setting: Tudor England

RT Rating

Scandal, seduction, spies, counter spies, murder, love and loyalty are skillfully woven into the tapestry of the Tudor court. Richly detailed and brimming with historical events and personages, McCabe's tale weaves together history and passion perfectly.

Marguerite Dumas, the
spy known as the Emerald Lily, has been sent to assassinate Russian
spy Nicolai Ostrovsky. She fails,
but one meeting has her hoping
for another.

They meet again at Henry VIII's court, where she's a member of the French delegation and he's with the Spanish court. Their loyalties are
tested as the fires of passion burst
into flames. Both know they're playing
a dangerous game, and their lives are
at stake should anyone discover their liaison. Like Romeo and Juliet, they devise a scheme to be together forever, but their enemies plot their destruction. (Harlequin, Apr., 300 pp., $5.99)
