REVIEW FROM HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW
Mary Rose Tudor, the young and beautiful sister of historically-infamous English king, Henry VIII, is given no peace until she agrees to marry the aged and sickly Louis XII of France for reasons of state. But before agreeing, she extracts a promise from Henry: one she is determined he will keep.
Deeply unhappy at the French court, blonde Mary makes friends with the charming and witty Francis, her aged husband’s heir and son-in-law. But lonely Mary is dismayed when her friendly overtures are taken as encouragement for something more than friendship. Too late, she finds that, even at twenty, Francis is a debauched and practised seducer, who pursues her relentlessly. And with the death of her husband and Francis’ elevation to the throne and absolute power, her situation becomes desperate. Unprotected, she is captive prey to this new and lusty French king.
Fearful for her reputation, the subject of spiteful gossip, Mary becomes increasingly concerned about the rumours she hears of Henry’s plans for her future. Did her supposedly loving brother really intend to push her into a second loveless State marriage with another distasteful bridegroom to suit himself and the State?
Trapped in an impossible situation, caught between a lustful Francis and the ruthless self-interest of her older brother, the spirited Mary Rose makes a fateful decision aware, even as she does so, that she is taking her very life in her hands.
