Since my husband is now employed, I went on a little used book buying spree:

The Rose, Red and White by Betty King (Margaret Tudor)
The Borgia Prince by Pamela Bennetts (Cesare Borgia)
The Two Queen Annes by Lozania Prole (Anne Boleyn and Anne of Cleves)

and to top it off, I simply could not resist buying this copy of Merry Mistress by Philip Lindsay (about Jane Shore), almost soley for the cover (despite numerous attempts I can't seem to figure out how to post a picture on here, so here is a link to it on my Book Cover Blog):

Love the cover. (The model looks suspiciously like the one on my Lindsay paperback about Katherine Howard from the same era.)

I already have that out from the library but not sure when I can get to it. I hope I can renew it before someone reserves it...
