SYNOPSIS

A brand-new historical novel from a well-loved storyteller - Henriette d’Entragues isn’t satisfied with simply being the mistress of Henry IV of France; she wants a crown too. Despite his promises to marry her, the King is obliged by political necessity to ally himself with a rich Italian princess. But Henriette isn’t one for giving up easily. All she has to do to achieve her ambition is to give Henry a son, and then do whatever it takes to set him on the throne . .

  2. I don't think I've ever read anything in Henri IV court. Definitely one I want to remember!

  3. Love pushy women in history! There was so much intrigue that time period filled with a hunger for both power and sex. Great review, Amy. Thanks for sharing.
