  • Her Last Assassin

  • A gripping historical thriller set in Tudor England during the reign of Elizabeth I.

    Lady-in-waiting Lucy Morgan is once again torn between her dangerous attraction to William Shakespeare and her fierce loyalty to Queen Elizabeth I.

    But England is facing its gravest threat yet. The Spanish have declared war, and Elizabeth finds herself attacked by sea – and by Catholic conspiracy from within her own court. Master Goodluck goes undercover, tasked with discovering the identity of this secret assassin, leaving his ward Lucy not knowing if the spy is alive or dead.

    Meanwhile Queen Elizabeth is growing old in a court of troublesome young noblemen, while Lucy is struggling to love a man whose duties lie elsewhere.

    When the final challenge comes, these two women must be ready to face it. But there is one last surprise in store for both of them …

While studying Elizabethan and Jacobean playwrights at Oxford University, Victoria Lamb had a desire to write a series of novels about Shakespeare’s ‘Dark Lady’. Now a busy mother of five, she has finally achieved that ambition. Along the way, she has published five books of poetry under the name Jane Holland and edited the arts journal Horizon Review. She is also the author of a series of Tudor novels for teens. Victoria lives in a three-hundred-year old farmhouse on the fringe of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, with her husband and young family. She is currently working on her third novel featuring Lucy Morgan. You can follow Victoria Lamb on Twitter @VictoriaLamb1.
