London, 1527. Marry or serve: for Honor Larke, the choice is clear. Unwilling to perish of boredom as an obedient wife, she leaves the home of her ward to attend Her Majesty, Queen Catherine of Aragon.

It's a risky game, but Honor is confident--until she's proven wrong by dashing courtier Richard Thornleigh--a man who awakens her heart, and who also has something to hide. . .. Swept into a tide of intrigue and danger that stretches across Europe, the Queen's lady is about to learn everything: about pride, passion, greed--and the conscience of the King... Weaves a fast-paced plot through some of the most harrowing years of English history. --Judith Merkle RileyExcellent, exciting, compellingly readable. --Ellen JonesRiveting, heady, glorious, inspired. --Susan Wiggs Includes a Reading Group Guide!

I loved this book! It was a little bit slow for the first couple of chapters but once it picked up it never let go! A great read.
