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, and 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...
