And to cut a long story short, I saw this book while browsing on Amazon but cant find a blurb for it anywhere so was wondering if anyone had heard anything about it? It's available for pre-order and is released at the end of April 2010.
What makes me ask is that one bookseller listed it in the gay erotica section (:eek which is not my normal area of interest...lol.
I've heard of it. I was offered an ARC but I am drowning at the moment, so turned it down.
There is a blurb on Barnes and Noble
and going on that it would be a bit of a surprise if it was gay erotica!
When young Mary Howard receives the news that she will be leaving her home for the grand court of King Henry VIII, to attend his mistress Anne Boleyn, she is ecstatic. Everything Anne touches seems to turn to gold, and Mary is certain Anne will one day become Queen. But Mary has also seen the King's fickle nature and how easily he discards those who were once close to him...
Discovering that she is a pawn in a carefully orchestrated plot devised by her father, the duke of Norfolk, Mary dare not disobey him. Yet despite all of her efforts to please him, she too falls prey to his cold wrath. Not until she becomes betrothed to Harry Fitzroy, the Duke of Richmond and son to King Henry VIII, does Mary finds the love and approval she's been seeking. But just when Mary believes she is finally free of her father, the tides turn. Now Mary must learn to play her part well in a dangerous chess game that could change her life-and the course of history.
