Blog Tour Giveaway: The Boleyn Bride by Brandy Purdy

It's my pleasure today to kick off the Brandy Purdy Virtual Tour festivities for the release of her novel The Boleyn Bride!

 Pub: February 25, 2014 | Kensington Publishing | Paperback; 272p

From carefree young woman to disillusioned bride, the dazzling lady who would become mother and grandmother to two of history’s most infamous queens, has a fascinating story all her own…

At sixteen, Elizabeth Howard envisions a glorious life for herself as lady-in-waiting to the future queen, Catherine of Aragon. But when she is forced to marry Thomas Boleyn, a wealthy commoner, Elizabeth is left to stagnate in the countryside while her detested husband pursues his ambitions. There, she raises golden girl Mary, moody George, and ugly duckling Anne–while staving off boredom with a string of admirers. Until Henry VIII takes the throne…

When Thomas finally brings his highborn wife to London, Elizabeth indulges in lavish diversions and dalliances–and catches the lusty king’s eye. But those who enjoy Henry’s fickle favor must also guard against his wrath. For while her husband’s machinations bring Elizabeth and her children to the pinnacle of power, the distance to the scaffold is but a short one–and the Boleyn family’s fortune may be turning.

  1. I have always loved reading about Anne Boleyn and I'm so delighted to see that there is another book being published. It sounds great and I'm looking forward to reading it. Congratulations on the release!

  2. Hallo, Hallo! :)

    Its quite incredible I think about how interconnected the Boleyn family & Henry VIII truly were! I hadn't realised to the depth nor extent until the publisher was hosting a trivia contest on Twitter! Goodness! The life of the Boleyn's certainly were not dull! I oft wondered though about if the women who were in Henry's life ever felt happy or drew out a measure of happiness whilst having to deal with his affairs and his in-attention at home life!? This particular book drew my eye for where the story will lead the reader!
