The Queen's Secret by Victoria Lamb
Publication Date: March 5th 2013
Format: Paperback 400pp

Synopsis (From the Publisher):
"In the court of Queen Elizabeth I, romance and intrigue could cost you more than your heart… It could cost you your head.

July, 1575: Elizabeth I, Queen of England, arrives at Kenilworth Castle—home of Robert Dudley, the Earl of Leicester. Leicester, who has long had ambitions to marry the Queen, knows this may be his very last chance to persuade her to marry him. Toward this end, the hopeful earl has organized a lavish week of music, dancing, and fireworks. 
Despite his attachment to the Queen and his driving ambition to be her King, Leicester is unable to resist the seductive wiles of Lettice, wife of the Earl of Essex—and the queen’s own cousin. Soon whispers of their relationship start spreading through the court. Enraged by their growing intimacy, Elizabeth employs Lucy Morgan, a young African singer and court entertainer, to spy on the adulterous lovers. 
But Lucy, who was raised by a spy in London, uncovers far more than she bargains for. For someone at Kenilworth is plotting to kill the queen. No longer able to tell friend from foe, it is soon not only the queen who is in mortal danger—but Lucy herself…"

Didn't know it hadn't been released yet, I bought a copy of it when I was in London last November.
Looking forward to reading it.

I had the privilege of meeting Victoria in London this past fall and she's delightful. I bought a copy of her book and had it signed. I'm hoping to have an interview with her when the book comes out here in the States. Interesting that the heroine Lucy is not featured on the cover of the book.
