    In her father’s household Althea Ervine was used to having the running of things - until her father disowned her (again) and Althea fled to her sister’s home in London. For the first time in her life Althea gave herself up to the gaiety of a purely social life, to the theatre and parties and the admiration of young men. The most ardent of these young men was Edward Pendarly, and Althea thought she could like him very much. But the infuriating, fascinating Sir Tracy Calendar hinted that Edward’s intentions were not all they should be. But why did Sir Tracy care, and for that matter, what were Sir Tracy’s intentions?

    The last time Olivia Martingale saw Menwin it was in Brussels on the eve of Waterloo. She had loved him then, but her love was not returned. Instead she yielded to the insistent Lord John Temperer, married him, and was left a widow. With the war at last over, visiting John’s family seemed like a good idea. But John’s brother the Duke disliked her; John’s mother wanted to match-make for her… and into the middle of all this walked Menwin, filling the room with his presence. Olivia felt the old attraction rising again - until Menwin looked right through her as if she was not even worth noticing.

    Hun, som ønsker at være dronning, må vinde kongens kærlighed - og rigets. Whitehall udspiller sig i det 17. århundrede hos den engelske konge Charles II hofs og er fortællingen om hans dronning, den portugisiske prinsesse, Catherine af Braganza. Hendes rejse for at finde sin plads som den udenlandske hustru i en tid fyldt med politiske og religiøse intriger - for ikke at nævne "den muntre monarks" mange elskerinder - er en fortælling om udholdenhed, som kun en ægte dronning kan mønstre.
