Could be from the same shoot Lady B. I'll be interested to hear what you think of Sacred Hearts, I found it quite dry, although beautifully written and very atmospheric.

It does appear the same shot like Madeline says.

You'll frequently find these illustrations at Shutterstock and Istock at reasonable prices, which means they turn up time and again. I've seen that red one for sale there.

Hah, I don't shop those kind of stores ;)

It's just a sport to spot them.

I'm starting to forget what we've already found! Have we had these before? I'm pretty sure they're from the same photoshoot:

It's the same dress. Pretty, but what era does it really belong to? (I'm no good at clothes sometimes.)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I don't think I've seen those before. Were they wearing ruffs when Isabella was queen?

I know that Ambition's Queen is about Anne Boleyn - I downloaded it when it was free six months ago and thought the cover looked quite professional for a self-pubbed book, although I'm not sure if the dress fits. Haven't read it yet though.

I guess I own that as well. Didn't even recognize it. According to the Amazon page, Tudor Queen, Tudor Crown is about Mary Tudor. If I'm reading the Wiki pagecorrectly, the ruffs started with Queen Elizabeth.
