As a young man he had been attached to Thomas Seymour’s household, working with Seymour’s spy and intelligence network. Seymour, married to Henry VIII’s widow, Catherine Parr. Through his wife he became guardian of the young Elizabeth Tudor, and so Richard Fitzwarren became a close childhood friend of Elizabeth Tudor. So close that Seymour was readily believed when he blamed Richard for the liberties he himself had taken with the young princess. Banished from his father’s house for the crimes he didn’t commit he’s learnt his trade well in France returning to England a self styled Tudor soldier of fortune selling his services, and those of his mercenary band to the highest bidder.
Now he’s back in England, his bastard sibling at his side and a band of mercenaries at his back. Despite selling his services to support Northumberland place Lady Jane Grey on the throne he remains loyal to the lady Elizabeth; soon he is embroiled in Tudor intrigue as he tries to keep the Lady safe.
At his side is Jack, his bastard sibling; their relationship a troubled one. Jacks seeks to be his brothers equal but Richard has difficulty accepting him; impatient, impulsive and impetuous, he is everything Richard is not. There is a dark family secret Richard had always suspected; the final discovery of it changes the relationship between them forever.
