He thinks she’s a traitor to her queen. She thinks he’s just a gardener.

Dive into this new Tudor Historical Romance series Trysts and Treachery by the award winning Elizabeth Keysian. Read for Free in Kindle Unlimited!

Despised by the cousin with whom she’s forced to live, the lonely but determined Alys craves escape. The most dangerous thing she could do is fall in love. Especially when the man who tempts her is Kit Ludlow, an exiled nobleman in disguise. Becoming involved in his secret mission proves more perilous than Alys could possibly have imagined.

Kit has been banished from Queen Elizabeth’s court, and the last thing he wants is to entangle Alys in his web of treachery and deception. It would also be folly to fall in love with her when he can’t be sure where her loyalties lie.

After helping Kit foil a plot against the queen, Alys’ life is at risk from her cousin’s nefarious schemes. Estranged from Kit, she’s forced to make a desperate decision.

Should she protect her family, or follow the demands of her heart?


Alys is the poor relation living at her widowed cousin's home.  She is more or less the housekeeper,  making sure her cousin and her guests are well looked after.  What she doesn't know is why the gentlemen seem to act as if it's their own home.
Kit is the new gardener but he doesn't always act like one.  There are a lot of secrets in this home,  most of them deadly.  Just who are the real villains?? 
This is an Elizabethen romantic suspense with danger and treachery on every page.  There are so many twists and turns you almost get dizzy.  
It made a nice change to visit this historical period.  The court of Elizabeth the first was very full of intrigue,  so it makes an ideal setting for this story. 
I loved it. 


Elizabeth Keysian is an English archaeologist, teacher and museum curator. She first started writing "long stories" when her headmaster father needed something to keep her quiet during school summer holidays. In her teenage years she produced angst-ridden poetry, slightly disturbing sketches for an amateur dramatics group and even her own magazine, to the mixed delight and consternation of her friends.
After completing her History degree, Elizabeth joined an English Civil War re-enactment group, messed about with the Middle Ages and finally settled to an enjoyable reconstruction of Tudor Daily Life at Kentwell Hall in Suffolk.
Her imagination was further inspired by living for seven years on a Knights Templar estate, with a garage full of skeletons, a resident ghost and a moat teeming with newts. She now lives near Bath with her partner and cats.
Elizabeth likes to keep her historical novels atmospheric and authentic, with both tears and laughter along the way. She loves to hear from readers.
