Passion, Treachery, Betrayal. The virgin queen has arrived...
Uncovering the love triangle between Queen Elizabeth I, Robert Dudley, and his wife Amy, and her mysterious death,
A Court Affair is an unforgettable story of ambition, lust and jealousy.
The future of the realm is in her hands...
Accused of conspiring with rebels to steal the throne, Princess Elizabeth is confined to the Tower of London by her half-sister, Queen Mary. There she finds solace in the arms of fellow prisoner - her childhood friend, Robert Dudley. But with Elizabeth's ascension to the crown, Robert returns to his wife and the unhappy union he believes cheated him of his destiny to be king.
As Anne Boleyn's daughter, Elizabeth knows the cruelty of marriage and roundly rejects her many suitors - with the exception of the power-hungry Robert. But their relationship carries a risk that could shake the very foundations of the House of Tudor. . .
A Court Affair is a fascinating portrait of both the rise of Elizabeth I and one of the most compelling periods in history.
