Wendy Blythe Gifford, a 1971 DePauw University graduate who writes using her middle name, is the author of Secrets at Court.  The new book is published by Harlequin Historical.

"Anne of Stamford has long been the keeper of her mistress's secrets, but when Lady Joan marries the king's son, court life becomes ever more perilous," notes a synopsis. "Sir Nicholas Lovayne has arrived to uncover the truth about Lady Joan's past, and Anne must do something -- anything -- to throw him off. Longing to escape the intrigues at court, Nicholas hasn't counted on the way Anne distracts him -- her refusal to accept pity for her clubfoot touches something deep inside him. Will he be able to follow his duty when every fiber of his being tells him to protect Anne?"
