US & UK Release Date: April 27, 2010

SYNOPSIS: With The Secrets of the Tudor Court, D. L. Bogdan gives readers the story of Mary Howard, presenting a new spin on an ever-fascinating tale, introducing obscure voices and perspectives to captivate the Tudor enthusiast. - Tudor England. The Secrets of the Tudor Court lends a unique window into history, telling the story of Henry VIII’s court and his ill-fated queens from the perspective of his little known daughter-in-law, Mary Howard.

Daughter of the brutal and ambitious 3rd Duke of Norfolk, Mary is a poet and a dreamer, too soon wed to Henry Fitzroy, Henry VIII’s illegitimate, but acknowledged son. When tragedy robs her of all she holds dear, Mary must fight for her inheritance and title, in the end gathering the strength to defy the one she loves—and hates—above all others: her father. The SEcrets of the Tudor Court is a fast-paced character driven drama. It is the story of betrayal, ambition, of innocence lost, and perseverance in a world where evil lay in wait to steal the soul.



  1. I'm not sure what to do with you Amy...of course you know I will just have to put this one TOO on my wish list!!

  2. So that's what the book is about. I kept seeing it arrive and now I get it. I don't know much about Henry Fitzroy's story and therefore Mary Howards. What a fun read.

  3. Sounds great! I love it when a story is retold from a different characters perspective. Thanks for the heads up :)


  4. With all that went on in Henry VIII's court, there must be a wealth of stories yet to be discovered and written.

  5. I have this one on my TBR as well...always looking for a new perspective on an era I'm very familiar with. I do wish it had a different title...this is the same as Kate Emerson's series!

  6. I don't know if I want to read anymore Tudor novels but I have to have this one just for the cover. It's beautiful!
