Book Description

Jan 1998
From Award-winning, best-selling author Denise Domning LADY IN WAITING "LADY IN WAITING is a wonderful and entertaining historical romance that brilliantly describes the intrigue and power of the court of Queen Elizabeth. Readers will especially enjoy the historical references that are interwoven into the novel by the delightful dexterity of Denise Domning and the secondary characters' abilities to overcome their handicaps. -Harriet Klausner, Romantic Times "...well written, well researched, with an accurate portrayal of Elizabeth I..." -Publishers' Weekly TO DANCE FOR THE VIRGIN QUEEN Commanded by her grandfather to marry a noble husband, beautiful, headstrong Anne Blanchemain enters the lavish court of Queen Elizabeth. A lamb among wolves, she is easy prey to treachery and an aging queen's jealousy. Christopher Hollier has only one interest-reclaiming the title of Lord Graistan for his invalid brother. But the dangerous dance of plots to defy crown and country sweep them into events that may ultimately cost them their lives, and their love.

More About the Author

10 June, 2014


It's time to get serious about my writing again. That's been hard to do with my life framed by milking cows, making cheese and raising vegetables. But Faucon and Edmund, the sleuths from my new mystery series, are chattering away in my head, demanding that I at least start taking notes. Even more motivating is the fact that the temperatures here in Arizona have now climbed over the 100 degree mark. Air conditioning is a wonderful thing.

And now, back to your regular programming.

Denise Domning is the award-winning, best-selling author of eleven historical novels and the co-author with Monica Sarli of one gritty, hard-bitten memoir of addiction and recovery. Of the two genres she frankly prefers the rats, grime and fleas of the Twelfth Century over the ghettos and drug use of modern Kansas City. For Denise, writing means using words as her time machine and painting an accurate portrait of a past. Open any of her novels, whether Twelfth, Thirteenth, Sixteenth or Nineteenth Century, and step into a bygone era. As one reviewer put it "...you live the life and the language, smell the odors of unwashed humanity, and hear the sucking sounds as your flimsy shoes slog through mud and muck." Now doesn't that sound romantic?

Denise and her husband Ed live on a farm in Cornville (yes, Cornville), Arizona, where they plant veggies, milk cows and have an Easter egg hunt every day.

In 1549, Christopher "Kit" Hollier and his older brother Nick were horse playing when an accident occurred, badly scarring Nick. Almost twenty years have passed and Kit, still blaming himself, suffers from nightmares and major pangs of guilt. Kit will do anything to make up for the tragedy he feels that he caused even though Nick does not blame him at all. Kit wants his sibling to receive the title due him from the Queen, but Nick will not travel to the court to accept what is rightfully his. Kit, thinking the accident stops Nick from getting his title, decides to help through other means. He accepts a deal with the acerbic Lady Elisabetta Montmercy, who has a personal ax to grind and will use Kit as her tool to accomplish this act. He will deflower the Queen's newest maid of honor, Anne Blanchemain, while Elisabetta will obtain the title for Kit.
However, everything changes for Kit when he meets Anne at the court. Though opportunity arises and he tries to live up to his end of the bargain, he finds he cannot harm Anne. Instead, he and Anne fall in love, but she has been contracted by her grandfather to wed a cruel widower. If Kit allows her to wed, she will probably die from the viciousness of her intended. If Kit tries to stop the nuptials, he will probably die. The loving couple desperately needs to find a way out if their current predicament while obtaining Elizabeth's blessing for them to marry.
LADY IN WAITING is a wonderful and entertaining historical romance that brilliantly describes the intrigue and power of the court of Queen Elizabeth. Readers will especially enjoy the historical references that are interwoven into the novel by the delightful dexterity of Denise Domning and the secondary characters' abilities to overcome their handicaps. This is one of the best Elizabethan romances to come along in several years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow through out, but very well detailed 26 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lady in Waiting has an amazing detailing of the Queen's court, but as for the plot, it was slow and weak throught-out the book. It drags on and only near the end does it get interesting. Denise Domning would make a excellent historical writer because of all the detail she put in to her book. Just not a historical romance writer.

I usually enjoy this author's books but I struggled to get into this book. I found there was too many characters and the story seemed too long winded.

You live and you can smell and taste olde England. How hard to have to do what a man told you to do. To marry someone very old or disgusting. To be in service to a Queen who lost her temper and you could not displeased. Great writing, great story. I have read both in this series, so worth reading. Thanks Denise
