From London's slums to its bawdy playhouses, The Darling Strumpet charts the meteoric rise of the dazzling Nell Gwynn, who captivates the heart of King Charles II-and becomes one of the century's most famous courtesans...

Witty and beautiful, Nell Gwynn is born into poverty, and trades her mother's treacherous grasp for the grim life of a prostitute at a precious young age. But before long she finds herself drawn to the theater, where she earns a place in the King's Company.

As one of the first actresses in the newly opened playhouses, her talents and charms win the crowds' affection-and the heart of her leading man. But when she catches the eye of the king himself, her life is transformed in ways she could never have imagined.

Surrendering her body and heart to Charles, Nell will be forced to maneuver the ruthless and shifting allegiances of the royal court-and discover a world of decadence and passion she never imagined was possible...
