Diane was no Saint

Where does Shari Beck find the nerve to portray Diane de Poitiers as some kind of a saint? Henri was a child, and she was old enough to be his mother. She only wanted to get power and money for herself. And he was married to poor Catherine who could do nothing but stand by helplessly while her husband made a fool of himself.

Ms Beck's book was well-written, and she expressed Diane's regret and conscience. Still, if Diane was so remorseful why did she continue the relationship?
