Master bridge builder Lord Penry is a traitor, committed to destroying Joya's beloved queen so York can rule. Joya, like her family, is deeply committed to keeping King Henry VI on the throne. They're both right, both wrong, both lost in the heat of unbridled passion and growing uncertainties. It's a dance of imperiled love amid the War of the Roses, and time is running out to reveal their true loyalties.
Crimson Secret is set during the War of the Roses. Margaret of Anjou, one of the strongest, most fascinating of England's queens, holds the reins of power firmly in her French-born hands. The country is bleeding from the turmoil caused by a king suffering from unpredictable bouts of insanity, and the Duke of York, who strives to take the throne and restore order.
During England's staggering number of battles and wars, transportation played a strategic part in determining which man would emerge victorious and claim the throne. Many battles were fought near and on bridges. Crimson Secret is a story of one of them.
