The Tudor Court, a vibrant testosterone-fuelled maze of manners, duty, politics and sex. To be a woman in such an environment requires guile, luck and loyal friends - a princess needs these even more.
To her father she was a disappointment, a bastard, a whore, to her sister a threat and to her stepmother she was Beth. The girl who became Elizabeth I, the woman with the heart of a lion, her heart beat like a woman's nonetheless and her desires were no different.
Martha D. Jones's Best Served Cold dips into the secret world of Elizabeth I, the indiscretions she witnesses, the confessions she must make as a result and the cruel justice visited on those who threaten the crown. Though Elizabeth will become a powerful woman her desires are simple and it is through these desires that she will hide the greatest secret of them all.
