Goodreads synopsis: "Orphan Meg Fellowes makes her living picking pockets—until she steals from the wrong nobleman. Instead of rotting in prison like she expected, she’s whisked away to the court of Queen Elizabeth and pressed into royal service, where she joins four other remarkable girls in the Maids of Honor, the Queen’s secret society of protectors.

Meg’s natural abilities as a spy prove useful in this time of unrest. The Spanish Court is visiting, and with them come devious plots and hidden political motives. As threats to the kingdom begin to mount, Meg can’t deny her growing attraction to one of the dashing Spanish courtiers. But it’s hard to trust her heart in a place where royal formalities and masked balls hide the truth: Not everyone is who they appear to be. With danger lurking around every corner, can she stay alive—and protect the crown?"

Why it's on my list: So this is a series that I had actually never heard of until yesterday, when it appeared on a lot of Top Ten Tuesday lists. I just find the premise so interesting, and I love historical fiction. Most of what I've been reading lately has been fantasy, so this seems like a fun series to break up that cycle.


  1. Oh hello. I like the sound of this!

    1. Same! I don't know how this series slipped under my radar.
