Overview

New York Times bestselling author Bertrice Small takes us back to the sensuality, drama, and intrigue of King Henry's sixteenth-century court to tell the story of the daughter of one of her most beloved characters.

The eldest child of Rosamund Bolton and heiress to the Friarsgate manor, Philippa Meredith is devastated when she discovers that the man she sought to marry has rebuffed her. But it is this sudden change of fortune that sweeps the spirited beauty back to her place in the court of Queen Katherine of Aragon-and into the arms of Crispin St. Clair, the Earl of Witton. But when Philippa stumbles onto a plot to assassinate King Henry VIII, their very love is tested as they attempt to unmask those who are plotting to tear the royal court asunder.

The Barnes & Noble Review
The drama and intrigue of King Henry's court color this sensational historical tale that follows the daughter of Small's popular heroine Rosamund. Young Philippa Meredith, enamored with her life in service to Queen Katherine of Aragon, is heartbroken when her long-standing engagement is broken and she is forced to return to a dull life in the country. Her family arranges another marriage, this time to the urbane Crispin St. Clair, who has a keen interest in Philippa's assets but is surprised by his attraction to his spirited new fiancée. As St. Clair introduces Philippa to the delights of marriage, they travel together to France, where Philippa stumbles upon a plot to kill King Henry and danger ensues... Ginger Curwen
