The ROYAL COMMAND trilogy is a family saga that opens with Lizzie and Michael. She is the heiress of a Scottish hunting estate disillusioned by guests boasting about trophy heads and "good bags" of grouse. He is an amateur actor from the backstreets of a city in Northern England who dreams of becoming a professional. They meet in London, Lizzie helps him succeed, and all is well, other than she's lonely when he goes on tour, until their eldest daughter, Lisette, is eighteen. Lisette falls for the father she scarcely knows and seduces him. The birth of a lovechild is hidden, but not quite well enough and scandal, and death, haunt the whole family.
