'A very readable account of a fascinating woman who dared to stand up to Henry VIII and survived. It is thoroughly researched, admirably written and the author's love of the Tudor period shines through.' Historical Novels Review

Mary Rose Tudor, the youngest and favourite sister of infamous English king, Henry VIII, is nonetheless pushed into a State marriage with the old and sickly King Louis XII of France.

At the French court, she is relentlessly pursued by Louis’ heir, the debauched Francis. In spite of her reluctant marriage and her would-be seducer, all Mary really wants is marriage to Charles Brandon, her true love. Will she manage to defy her brother and follow the path of true love? Or will she be pushed into another distasteful royal marriage to suit her brother's shifting alliances and the requirements of State?
