Summary

As the thrilling adventures of Ursula Blanchard, secret agent for Queen Elizabeth I, continue, she finds herself in France, reunited with her husband, Matthew de la Roche, in a passionate but flawed relationship. But when Ursula learns that her daughter, Meg, has mysteriously disappeared, she immediately sets out on a frantic and dangerous search. The trail leads back to England, to Vetch Castle: a grim, haunted keep owned by the enigmatic Philip Mortimer. Soon, Ursula forms an alliance with Mortimer's aging but beautiful mother and finds herself investigating both a murder and an elaborate plot that could cost the queen her throne. With surprises at every turn and a highly suspenseful setting, To Ruin a Queen is the best novel yet from an author whose series continues to gain momentum and whose heroine becomes more beguiling with each new tale.

Un interesting Un everything

This is a Mills & Boon historical fiction. What a waste of time and money. It should be listed under 'romance' not 'history'. Factually/historically inaccurate in its elaborate descriptions. I have no idea how it ended because I died of boredom before I reached the finish. Very disappointing.

4/4

This is book four available here. I have enjoyed them and hope the rest will follow.

The narrator, Nadia May, records under several pseudonyms and is excellent in all of them.
