Living beneath the shadow of violence, Italian perfumer Allegra Grimaldi learned the killing arts from a religious assassin. She swore never to use her deadly skills, but a blackmailer has her by the proverbial throat. To save her family, she must infiltrate the court of King Henry VIII, poison the heretic Anne Boleyn—and frame Anne’s bastard brother for the crime. Honest and principled, Sir Joscelin Boleyn is the perfect pawn. This stalwart soldier and the fallen woman who breathes deception must learn to trust each other—and discover the one truth that could save them all.
