From Bertrice Small, the beloved "queen of romance,"
(Publishers Weekly) comes a sweeping new novel of a young
girl's unexpected journey into womanhood, into mystery and
passion, and into history...
Her name is Rosamund Bolton. She is heiress to the
Friarsgate fortune. More than a splendid inheritance, it
will chart the fate of the orphaned beauty, widowed at a
precious young age. It will take her from the treacherous
custody of her devious uncle to the magnificent court of
Elizabeth of York, into the confidence of Katherine of
Aragon, and past the intimate chamber doors of Henry VIII.
It's an adventure that will test the limits of passion and
betrayal; it will change the meaning of the word enemy,
turn even the most daring fantasy into true love.
With this first novel in an original and exciting new
series, the adventures of Rosamund are just beginning...
