The Queen's Lady

The passion, danger, and intrigue of the royal court of Henry VIII comes to life in this “excellent, exciting, compellingly readable” romance (Ellen Jones, author of Gilded Cages).
 
In 1527 London, a young woman such as Honor Larke has only two options: marry or serve. But for Honor, there is no choice. Unwilling to perish from boredom as an obedient wife, she leaves the home of her ward to attend Her Majesty, Queen Catherine of Aragon. But life in Henry VIII’s court holds more than artifice for an intelligent observer, and Honor knows how to watch—and when to act.
 
Angered by the humiliation heaped upon Her Majesty as Henry cavorts with Anne Boleyn—while pressing the church in Rome for a divorce—Honor volunteers to carry letters to the queen’s allies. 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, but 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 more than she ever thought about pride, lust, greed—and the conscience of the king—in a “riveting, heady, glorious, inspired” tale of loyalty and love (Susan Wiggs, #1 New York Times–bestselling author).
 
“Compelling narrative and characterization make Kyle’s debut comparable with the likes of Margaret George and Kathleen Windsor.” —Publishers Weekly
