About At the Mercy of the Queen

SYNOPSIS

A sweeping tale of sexual seduction and intrigue at the court of Henry VIII, At the Mercy of the Queen is a rich and dramatic debut historical about Madge Shelton, cousin and lady-in-waiting to Anne Boleyn.

At the innocent age of fifteen, Lady Margaret Shelton arrives at the court of Henry VIII and quickly becomes the confidante of her cousin, Queen Anne Boleyn. But she soon finds herself drawn into the perilous web of Anne’s ambition.

Desperate to hold onto the king’s waning affection, Anne schemes to have him take her guileless young cousin as mistress, ensuring her husband’s new paramour will owe her loyalty to the queen. But Margaret has fallen deeply in love with a handsome young courtier. She is faced with a terrible dilemma: give herself to the king and betray the love of her life or refuse to become his mistress and jeopardize the life of the her cousin, Queen Anne.

  16. I have always loved to read anything about Anne Boleyn. Such a controversial person in history with some saying she was evil and others saying she wasn't. I guess the "evil" label goes with being the Queen. I certainly look forward to reading this interesting book.

  37. Rena,

    Since watching the Tudors I was fascinated to see that Anne picked Henry's mistress during her pregnancy and it was none other than her cousin. Please include me in this great giveaway. I'm a long time follower of this blog and joined Passages to the Past FB page. I also shared about this giveaway on my facebook page.
