    You went to bed at home, just like every other night. You woke up in the back of a taxi, over 250 miles away. You have no idea how you got there and no memory of the last 10 hours.

    You trust me. You shouldn’t. That picture you just posted on Instagram? I’ve seen it. The location you tagged? I’ve been there. You haven’t been careful enough, have you? Because I know all about you. But when I meet you, I won’t tell you that. I’ll pretend. Just like you do. You’ll like me, though. You’ll trust me enough to let me into your life. And then I’ll destroy it....

    What happened after the queen married her handsome prince? Did they live happily ever after, or did their marriage, like so many royal marriages past and present, fizzle into a loveless round of duty? This all-new companion audiobook by Daisy Goodwin and Sara Sheridan transports listeners to the private world of Victoria and Albert. Though first cousins, they could not have been more different: Victoria was impulsive, emotional, and capricious, Albert cautious, self-controlled, and logical. But together they forged a bond with each other.
