As a huge fan of the 1980s and especially pop music his private ambition is to time travel back to the 80s and meet David Bowie in his prime.

Something goes wrong with his prototype on his iPhone and Jack does indeed time travel but back to the 1580s!

From a chance meeting with Melinda, a young beauty and lady in waiting to the great Queen, Jack soon finds himself embroiled in the secret love affair between the middle aged sovereign and the dashing young stud, the Earl of Essex.

This is not the Queen the history books have written about. She is all woman, powerful, head strong and sexy. Essex, an ambitious rebel adventurer outsider has his hands full with his Queen, but with Jack forms a plan to not only win her heart but also her hand in marriage and therefore inherit the throne of England and a ready made Empire.

Things go wrong as Essex with the help of Jack and Melinda does win the heart of QE 1

but is arrested, imprisoned and condemned to death for treason.
