Bella is terrified when Henry VIII pays her attentions, looking for a sixth wife to give him sons. Her brother imagines himself Regent for a boy king, her Spanish cousin Pedro thinks of advantages for Spain with a half-Spanish Queen on the throne. She flees from Court, and handsome Comte de Nerac offers to help her. Will he betray her to Henry's vengeance and the men the King has sent after her?
