Power & Glory

England. 1515. Thomas Wolsey has risen higher than anyone thought possible, but he’s keen on rising even higher. If he could only become Lord Chancellor, Thomas knows he can change England forever.

The nobility has been abusing their position for years, while the Church has become openly corrupt. As Thomas works to right these wrongs at home, his diplomatic skills are severely tested abroad as foreign rulers either seek alliances with England or try to rob her blind!

There’s trouble at court, too. Royal feathers have been ruffled. The king still lacks a son to carry on the Tudor line, while he is being outshone in Europe by younger rivals. King Henry looks to his clever cardinal to restore his tarnished reputation.

Thomas comes up with an extraordinary idea. He will make his king the figurehead of a bold new treaty that will bring peace to all Europe.

And make himself the greatest statesman of the age!

Master Wolsey

1485. The world has changed. Henry VII sits on England’s throne following his defeat of King Richard III at Bosworth Field.

Enter Thomas Wolsey, a young man with a great deal of brains and even greater ambition. Moving from master to master, Thomas moves higher up the social ladder with each job until finally, he is in reach of the highest master in the land: the King of England himself!

 

But Thomas has no idea how treacherous the Tudor Court can be. His swift rise from butcher’s son to man of influence creates enemies at court, chief among them the king’s mother, Lady Margaret Beaufort.

 

Master Wolsey is an intimate portrait of England’s most notorious priest, chronicling his early years from his days as an Oxford scholar to his becoming cardinal during the reign of King Henry VIII.

The Queen's Favourite

Robert Dudley is a child of the Tudor Court and he knows first-hand how dangerous it can be: his ruthless, tax-collecting grandfather was executed by Henry VIII and his father executed by Queen Mary I for his part in the Lady Jane Grey affair. With a family name tainted by treason, Robert knows he must use all his talents to rise. One of his talents is making himself indispensable to Queen Elizabeth, who soon finds she cannot live without him by her side.

But to many in England, and indeed, within the court, Robert is nothing but a rogue, a villain, a gypsy, always looking to see what he can pick up. And he’s going to have a hard time convincing his enemies that there’s more to him than just a gold-digger.

Robert believes he can become King – all he needs to do is persuade Elizabeth Tudor to marry him. But with Elizabeth determined to be a virgin queen, Robert discovers this is no easy task. He must be prepared to make great sacrifices to win his prize.

The Queen's Rebel

Elizabeth Tudor faces the most dangerous threat of her reign…

 

Who will prevail, queen or noble? The old generation or the new?

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!

The Queen's Spymaster

England in the sixteenth century is a country in religious turmoil.

King Henry VIII’s Reformation has left England divided between Catholics and Protestants. Most of the those who cling to the Old Faith are content to conform to the laws of the land. But there are some Catholics who wonder where their allegiance lies – to England’s heretic queen or the Pope?

But one man can answer that question for them.

Francis Walsingham is a staunch Protestant. As French ambassador, he witnesses the savagery of the St Bartholomew’s Eve massacre, when Catholics slaughtered Protestants in their thousands, and when he returns home, he is determined that England will never suffer the same fate.

 

Walsingham creates a spy network that keeps him informed of Catholic plots against Elizabeth, especially those that have Mary Queen of Scots at their centre, and he pursues her with vigour.

His mission is clear. He will protect Elizabeth from her enemies by whatever means necessary!

The Last King of Rome

579 BC. When King Lucomo, first of the Tarquins, is brutally murdered by hired assassins, his adopted son Servius takes the throne without the approval of the senate. The assassins are executed but not before one of them lays a curse upon the family, a curse that will threaten the very future of the Tarquin dynasty.

 

As the years pass, Servius earns the senate’s trust to become a loved and respected king, but his success breeds fierce discontent in the heart of Lucius Tarquinius, Lucomo’s grandson.

 

Determined to do whatever it takes to become king, Lucius and his ambitious wife Lolly embark on a bloody path that will lead to blood being shed on the very steps of the senate.

 

Lucius is now King of Rome. He would be happy were it not for a Sibyline prophecy which has predicted the fall of the Tarquins and all Lucius holds most dear.

 

Is the future already set? Or can Lucius defy the prophecy and secure the throne of Rome for the Tarquin dynasty forever?

The Eagle in the Dovecote

Rome has a new hero, but he may prove to be her greatest enemy yet.

Tarquin the Proud has been banished from Rome and the people have begun building their new republic. But there is still a great divide between the patricians and the plebeians, and tensions swiftly begin to run high.

It seems that only a hero can unite the two factions.

Rome finds her hero in the form of Caius Marcius, a scion of a great Roman family descended from kings. Time after time, Caius proves himself in battle, strengthening Rome’s power and expanding her borders while assuring himself of his own superiority, both on the battlefield and in Rome.

But Rome has already suffered under a proud ruler and they don’t want another. The people exiled a king; they can certainly banish a proud and arrogant young man.

But Caius Marcius will not go meekly to his fate. Cast out from his birthplace, separated from his family, Caius plots his revenge on Rome.

When the Siren Sings

Murder holds no mystery. The mystery lies in the people who commit it.

Danny Beck: young, handsome… and thoroughly unscrupulous. He’ll do anything and use anyone if there’s something to be gained, and no one is going to get the better of him.

Fresh out of prison, Danny lands a cushy job at a posh country house and is soon working to seduce his employer’s virginal daughter.

But Phoebe Merrill isn’t the pushover he was expecting. To win her, he must first prove himself. Telling her to name her terms, Danny is shocked. Phoebe may have the face of an angel, but he discovers there’s a devil inside when she asks him to kill her father.

The offer is too tempting to refuse. Perhaps he should ask Phoebe why she wants her father dead, but Danny’s never been one to ask questions. It’s a habit he may live to regret.

The Queen's Rival

Related by blood. Divided by love.

To Elizabeth Tudor, Lettice Knollys was always ‘the other woman’.

 

Lettice was younger, more beautiful and more alluring than Queen Elizabeth could ever be. And that was the problem.

 

Widowed when still young, Lettice must raise four children in an age when a woman always needs a man to provide for her. Which isn’t a problem for Lettice. Lettice is a woman who likes to have a man by her side – and in her bed.

 

But the men in her life have loyalties to another woman – Queen Elizabeth I – and Elizabeth doesn’t like to share. One woman has absolute power; the other has only her wit and her beauty.

 

And so begins a rivalry that will endure for both their lifetimes.
