This sensational debut novella by Andrea Zuvich is perfect for fans of Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir. Set during the tumultuous late 17th Century, this is the moving story of the legendary Duke of Monmouth and his last mistress – and one of the most scandalous love affairs of the Seventeenth Century.
The handsome James Scott, Duke of Monmouth, the illegitimate eldest son of King Charles II, had grown into a spoiled and rakish young man. Tired of a cold wife and a tempestuous mistress, he is captivated by the innocent, young Lady Henrietta Wentworth. But Henrietta has been brought up to covet her virtue. She wants a good husband with whom she can bear children and grow old contentedly. She is determined to spurn the advances of the reckless Duke. But she cannot deny the chemistry that fizzles between them…
His Last Mistress is a passionate and moving love story set against a backdrop of political unrest and royal uncertainty.
