The Countess and the King: A Novel of the Countess of Dorchester and King James II by Susan Holloway Scott

Katherine Sedley lived by her own rules and loved who she pleased- until she became the infamous mistress of King James II... London, 1675: Born to wealth and privilege, Katherine is introduced to the decadent court of King Charles II, and quickly becomes a favorite from the palace to the bawdy playhouses. She gleefully snubs respectable marriage to become the Duke of Yorks mistress. But Katherines life of carefree pleasure ends when Charles II dies, and her lover becomes King James II. Suddenly she is cast into a tangle of political intrigue, religious dissent, and ever-shifting alliances, where a wrong step can mean treason, exile, or death at the executioners block. As the risks rise, Katherine is forced to make the most perilous of choices: to remain loyal to the king, or to England.
