He Fought For Queen, For Country, And For The Love Of The Passionate Woman He Was Forbidden To Mary

From the back:

RED WINE…FAIR WOMEN… FABULOUS WEALTH…
These were the rewards Michael Goddard dreamed of when he returned to England with a treasure taken at sword’s point from the proud galleons of the Spanish Main. But instead, Goddard was falsely accused of treachery to Queen Elizabeth. He was left to rot in a dungeon. Then, suddenly and mysteriously, he was helped to escape. His rescuer was a ravishingly beautiful woman he had never even seen before. And the mystery deepened when Good Queen Bess herself ordered him to perform a service upon which hung the fate of all England. Was this just another trap baited by an English beauty? Or was it the way for this lusty swords-man to regain his honor and his glittering fortune? What was Goddard to believe?
