Forcibly seduced by the powerful George Villiers, doctor's daughter Hester is cast aside to raise her son alone and in secret. She hopes never to see Villiers again. Melis's visions cause disquiet and talk. She sees what others can't - and what has yet to be. She'd be denounced as a witch if Hester wasn't so carefully protective. Young Hope's beauty marks her out, drawing unwelcome attention to the family. Yet she cannot always resist others' advances. And her sisters cannot always be on their guard. When Villiers decides to claim his son against Hester's wishes, the sisters find themselves almost friendless and at his mercy. But the women hold a grave secret - will it be their undoing or their salvation? Because in the right hands, a secret is the deadliest weapon of all . . .

"They say that the court of a prince resembles a fountain, whose clear water should refresh the land; but if corruption enters near the head, the infected streams bring poison". This prince is the Scottish king who became James I of England, "the wisest fool in Christendom" who made no secret of his love for young men. At his brilliant court three friends seek advancement, the narrator Giles Rawlins, Giles's cousin Thomas Overbury, and Thomas's protege, the ravishing Robbie Kerr, who becomes King James's lover only to find himself out of his depth in a world of unscrupulous scheming. As with Chris Hunt's many previous novels, The Honey and Sting brings to life a slice of English history, weaving real characters and events into a dramatic tale of which homosexual passion is the driving force.
