about

Mary Howard has always lived in the shadow of her powerful family. But when she’s married off to Henry Fitzroy, King Henry VIII’s illegitimate son, she rockets into the Tudor court’s inner circle. Mary and “Fitz” join a tight clique of rebels who test the boundaries of court’s strict rules with their games, dares, and flirtations. The more Mary gets to know Fitz, the harder she falls for him, but is forbidden from seeing him alone. The rules of court were made to be pushed…but pushing them too far means certain death. Is true love worth dying for?
Katherine Longshore is also the author of Gilt and Tarnish. She lives in Northern California with three British citizens and one expatriate dog.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting After reading this I immediately wanted to research the real historical figures of Mary and Henry Fitzroy and much like the author states, there isn't much about them. The book is an interesting take on a fictional romance between the two people, I enjoyed their relationship though at times it seemed a bit superficial. The whole plot with the friend and Henry VIII affair was probably the biggest downfall of the book but nonetheless I thought the book was a good read.
