Elizabeth Tudor faces the most dangerous threat of her reign…
Who will prevail, queen or noble? The old generation or the new?
The Queen’s Rebel: Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex (The Tudor Court, Book 2) is a revealing portrait of a man convinced he was born to rule but whose character flaws led him to the executioner’s block instead.
When Robert Devereux arrives at court, he catches the eye of the ageing Queen Elizabeth I. Grief-stricken after the death of her favourite, the Earl of Leicester, Robert spies an opportunity to step into his shoes. But unlike his predecessor, Robert is not prepared to have Elizabeth dangle favours before him only to snatch them away again. His eyes are on a much bigger prize, that of the throne itself.
But Elizabeth is not willing to relinquish her power, so Robert has to fight for what he believes should be his.
There are no prizes for coming second at the Tudor court.
This fight is to the death!
