Overview

By the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author behind the Starz original series "The White Queen," a riveting new Tudor tale featuring King Henry VIII s sixth wife Kateryn Parr, the first English queen to publish under her own name.
"Why would a woman marry a serial killer?"
"Because she cannot refuse "
Kateryn Parr, a thirty-year-old widow in a secret affair with a new lover, has no choice when a man old enough to be her father who has buried four wives King Henry VIII commands her to marry him.
Kateryn has no doubt about the danger she faces: the previous queen lasted sixteen months, the one before barely half a year. But Henry adores his new bride and Kateryn s trust in him grows as she unites the royal family, creates a radical study circle at the heart of the court, and rules the kingdom as Regent.
But is this enough to keep her safe? A leader of religious reform and the first woman to publish in English, Kateryn stands out as an independent woman with a mind of her own. But she cannot save the Protestants, under threat for their faith, and Henry s dangerous gaze turns on her. The traditional churchmen and rivals for power accuse her of heresy the punishment is death by fire and the king s name is on the warrant
From an author who has described all of Henry s queens comes a deeply intimate portrayal of the last: a woman who longed for passion, power, and education at the court of a medieval killer."
