Summary

Philip, Prince of Spain, the unwilling bridegroom of Queen Mary, has been warned about the Queen's half sister, the young Elizabeth. According to all reports, she is a heretic, a rebel and a potential enemy and has 'a spirit full of enchantment'. An alluring description and one that immediately intrigues rather than deters the foreign prince.

Accused of treachery by Mary and under threat of death, Elizabeth's life hangs in the balance. Only Philip, idolised by his ageing wife and able to sway her decisions, holds the power to save the courageous young princess. And so Elizabeth must advance warily towards her destiny, running the gauntlet between Bloody Mary's jealousy and Philip's uneasy ardour....
