The September Queen

Product Description

Charles II is running for his life-and into the arms of a woman who will risk all for king and country.
Jane Lane is of marrying age, but she longs for adventure. She has pushed every potential suitor away-even those who could provide everything for her. Then one day, adventure makes its way to her doorstep, and with it comes mortal danger…
Royalists fighting to restore the crown to King Charles II implore Jane to help. Jane must transport him to safety, disguised as a manservant. As she places herself in harm’s way, she finds herself falling in love with the gallant young Charles. And despite his reputation as a breaker of hearts, Jane finds herself surrendering to a passion that will change her life forever.

About the Author

Gillian Bagwell has had a life-long love of books, British history, and theatre, and united these passions in writing her first novel, The Darling Strumpet, based on the life of Nell Gwynn, seventeenth-century actress and long-time mistress of Charles II.  Gillian began her professional life as an actress, then moved from acting to directing and producing, founding The Pasadena Shakespeare Company, which she ran for nine years.  She now lives in Berkeley, California.

During the course of researching The Darling Strumpet, Gillian learned of the astonishing story of Jane Lane, who risked her life to help the young Charles II escape after the disastrous Battle of Worcester in 1651. Jane’s perilous and romantic odyssey with Charles is the subject of Gillian’s upcoming second book, The September Queen.
