9780007289134: The Noble Assassin

She's an old man's darling, a court beauty, the muse of poets. And, on top of it all, she's chief lady-in-waiting to the queen of England. Lucy Russell (nee Harington), Countess of Bedford, had it all. So why did she risk everything to save her friend, the princess, Elizabeth Stuart?

About the Author:

Christie Dickason was born in America but lived as a child in Thailand, Mexico and Switzerland. Harvard-educated (followed by Yale), Christie worked as a former theatre director and choreographer in England, with the Royal Shakespeare Company and at Ronnie Scott's, among others. She now counts London as her home, having lived there much longer than anywhere else.

Review:

Praise for The Principessa`The perfect companion for long autumn evenings. It's an absorbing historical adventure...a satisfyingly intricate plot' First`This is a fabulous read. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical adventure and intrigue, twists and turns but also to those who revel in a poignant and powerful love story. There's something for everyone and what's more, it's beautifully written. What more could anyone ask? I cannot for the life of me understand why Christie Dickason's novels are not better known and appreciated. It's high time.' Historical Novels ReviewPraise for The Firemaster's Mistress:`A rich mix of romance, suspense, adventure and lightly-worn knowledge. Gunpowder, treason and plot have never been so entertaining.' Kate Saunders, The Times`Atmospheric and impressively researched, it is highly entertaining.' Elizabeth Buchan, Sunday Times`The Firemaster's Mistress is that rare historical novel: utterly congruent with history and successful as a work of fiction. It tells the story of an engaging man betrayed both by his own honour and his love for a Roman Catholic woman. His skills with explosives lead him into the very heart of the conspiracy, walking a difficult line with plotters, spymasters, and his own fears. The England of James I is magnificently evoked in this engaging novel.' Philippa Gregory
