Thanks to the generosity of author Brandy Purdy I have three copies of her latest novel, The Queen's Pleasure, up for grabs!

Publication Date:  June 26, 2012
Kensington 
384p

{SYNOPSIS}

When young Robert Dudley, an earl's son, meets squire's daughter Amy Robsart, it is love at first sight. They marry despite parental misgivings, but their passion quickly fades, and the ambitious Dudley returns to court. Swept up in the turmoil of Tudor politics, Dudley is imprisoned in the Tower. Also a prisoner is Dudley's childhood playmate, the princess Elizabeth. In the shadow of the axe, their passion ignites. When Elizabeth becomes queen, rumours rage that Dudley means to free himself of Amy in order to wed her. And when Amy is found dead in unlikely circumstances, suspicion falls on Dudley - and the Queen...Still hotly debated amongst scholars - was Amy's death an accident, suicide, or murder? - the fascinating subject matter makes for an enthralling read for fans of historical fiction.

  27. I am unfamiliar with the story of Amy and find it a sad one. Thus, I am eager to read "The Queen's Pleasure" to see if I feel for myself what caused her death. The Tudor time period was fraught with all kinds of intrigue and I am always looking for more novels of read about it.
