The fourth novel in Kate Emerson's well-reviewed series set in Tudor England--based on a real life member of the royal court of Henry VIII.

Following the acclaimed By Royal Decree , Pleasure Palace , and Between Two Queens , Kate Emerson again plucks a real figure from history in this lushly detailed tale featuring Lady Anne Stafford--who is torn between her husband and another man.

History remembers Lady Anne Stafford as the woman who cheated on her husband with both King Henry VIII and his companion, Sir William Compton. Lady Anne was indeed in love with two men at the same time....but the king wasn't one of them. Lady Anne's complex and heart-wrenching romantic relationships are at the core of this riveting tale that masterfully blends romance, drama, and historical detail as only Kate Emerson can.
