Summary

Set against the intrigue and pageantry of the sixteenth-century English court, Evelyn Anthony’s novel tells the love story of Henry Tudor and Anne Boleyn, who would become his wife, his queen, and the mother of one of Britain’s greatest monarchs   On a lovely midsummer afternoon, Henry Tudor rides to Hever Castle. There, he feasts his eyes on Anne Boleyn, who caught his roving attention at court a few months earlier. Anne is in no mood to receive her king. He has torn from her the one man she loved: Harry Percy, who was forced to marry another. But King Henry VIII is not a man who gives up—the thrill of the chase only excites him more. Yet the woman he desires so passionately is no fool. Educated at the French court, Anne vows that she will not share the fate of her naïve younger sister, Mary, who after bearing Henry a bastard son was cast away and married off to a country squire. No, Anne will settle for nothing less than the crown of England, even if Henry has to break with Rome in order to marry her.   History comes thrillingly alive in a novel that features a teeming canvas of iconic real-life characters: Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, the enemy Anne vows to destroy; Henry’s first wife, the proud and pious Queen Catherine of Aragon; and Thomas Cromwell, who engineers Anne’s downfall. From the halcyon early days of courtship to her imprisonment in the palace tower for treason, this is a tale of love, ambition, and the tragic destiny of Anne of the Thousand Days.

    Losing the twenty-first century was bad enough, but Martha Bigalow's situation is about to become a whole lot worse. 
    Only days after her marriage to Vadim—a handsome outlaw stalked by grim shadows of the past—Martha is captured by his arch nemesis, the evil Earl of Edgeway. 
    While awaiting her fate in a dank dungeon beneath Edgeway's castle, Vadim’s twisted foster brother— Anselm—offers her a way out, an alternative to a tortuous and painful death. 
    Forced into a life of deceit, Martha discovers friendship where she least expects to find it, even within the stronghold of the enemy, and by the time war descends on Edgeway, the boundary between black and white—between friend and foe—is less distinct. 
    As the castle braces itself for a bitter siege, Martha's loyalty is divided, her love for Vadim tested to its limit...and may prove to be yet another casualty of war.
