Teaser Tuesday (14 September)

I would never be so impertinent as to give the Lady Elizabeth only two sentences -- even if it is Teaser Tuesday.

What of Elizabeth then? She is a dark horse, and I do not trust her. She rarely comes to court, and when she does visit the King, she appears meek and pious, but I am not fooled. Beneath that dutiful mask, I have no doubt, lies a devious and dangerous character. I would not like to tangle with Elizabeth.

Innocent Traitor, p. 243. John Dudley, musing on which princess of the blood royal might best suit his designs.

  18. Interesting teaser! That Tudor court was a real minefield - especially for the young women. Makes for some great reading, though.
