Dispossessed of crown and kingdom, crushed and routed at the grim Battle of Worcester, the young Charles II is forced to flee for his life.
Out of the heat of battle, the outlaw King and his tiny party must journey across Cromwell's England to a Channel port and a ship bound for France and safety.
But the King, with his love of adventure, his irrepressible humour and his unmistakeable looks, is no easy man to hide...A typically witty, exciting and wonderful tale of historical adventure, Royal Escape will please Georgette Heyer fans old and new.
