Royal Inheritance was another good read by Kate Emerson and one that I will consider reading again in the future. I particularly liked that Emerson does not make bodice rippers out of her historical fiction by providing highly sexualized descriptive passages.

I found this book to be a little different than the previous books in the series. I still enjoyed it, but the events seemed a lot tamer than they had in previous books. I really liked Audrey. I was a little surprised that she didn't question her own heritage sooner. If it were me, I would wonder why a chance meeting with the king would lead to being removed from my abusive home and being placed with a rich merchant. If that wasn't enough to question, then the king orders Audry be brought to court, given all sorts of lessons above her adoptive sisters. It's no wonder they become jealous of Audrey. As Audrey becomes of marriageable age, a very undesirable match comes forward. Audrey has no desire to become the daughter-in-law of a man accused of murder, especially when she learns who this man thinks her father really is. She hopes that if she delays long enough, that she will be able to marry the man she truly loves. But, what happens when the king gets involved? Will she be able to defy her king as well? I enjoyed how this story is told in flashbacks in the way of Audrey telling her background to her 8 year old daughter Hester. She's feels she does not have luxury of time to tell this story when her daughter is older. I'm not sure why she felt her daughter needed this information in the first place, but so be it. I'm hoping this series exhausted yet. I've really enjoyed Kate Emerson's ability to take little known people in history and give them their own story!

Have you ever started reading a book to quickly find out it wasn't going to be what you thought it was? That was the case with me for Royal Inheritance. It wasn't what I was expecting at all but it turned out to be an very enjoyable read. I find myself stepping out of my comfort zone on the occasion and I've really enjoyed reading a books that broaden my reading palate.   I truly enjoyed reading Audrey's story, she was a very smart girl, with the knowledge to know what she should keep to herself. I loved how she interacted with the various people from different societies of life. For being a merchant's daughter she really was brought up to be quite the lady. A little on the mischievous side at times but this girl really has my admiration.  I loved how she was doing her best to give her daughter all the details she needed to know so she didn't have to wonder later. I also appreciated the fact that she had to caution her daughter to guard the information she gave to her. I also found Audrey and Jack's interaction together to be quite entertaining and I often wondered what may happen next.  Kate Emerson has done a lovely job of combining fiction as well as giving us a nice education of English history around the time of King Henry the VIII. Ms. Emerson has created a story that I found to be very enjoyable and fascinating. I enjoyed her style of writing, she tells a very well written story that kept me interested from the beginning to the end. I would not hesitate to read more work written by MS. Emerson. I have not had the pleasure of reading the other books in the Secrets of Tudor Court, I have a feeling they would be an interesting read as well. I didn't feel like I was missing anything to the story with not having read the previous five books. If you enjoy historical fiction mixed in with some interesting historical facts I really do think you will enjoy this book.  I was given the opportunity to read Royal Inheritance in exchange for sharing my thoughts with you. As always it has been a pure pleasure for me to share my thoughts with you. If you should happen to have read or do read this book I would love to hear your thoughts. Please stop by my blog and let me know what you thought.
