An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason

No reviews
Shakespeare in Love meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith in this witty and thrilling story of star-crossed assassins in Elizabeth England, perfect for fans of My Lady Jane and TheGentlemans Guide to Vice and Virtue!

When Lady Katherines father is killed for being an illegally practicing Catholic, she discovers treason wasnt the only secret hes been hiding: he was also involved in a murder plot against the reigning Queen Elizabeth I. With nothing left to lose, Katherine disguises herself as a boy and travels to London to fulfill her fathers mission, and to take it one step further -- kill the queen herself.

Katherines opportunity comes in the form of William Shakespeares newest play, which is to be performed in front of Her Majesty. But what she doesnt know is that the play is not just a play. Its a plot to root out insurrectionists and destroy the rebellion once and for all.

The mastermind behind this ruse is Toby Ellis, a young spy for the queen with secrets of his own. When Toby and Katherine are cast opposite each other as the plays leads, they find themselves inexplicably drawn to one another. But the closer they grow, the more precarious their positions become. And soon they learn that star-crossed love, mistaken identity, and betrayal are far more dangerous off the stage than on.
