She was the most infamous woman of the age. He was the man who would love her for all her life… The Queen’s Promise by bestselling author Lyn Andrews sheds new light on the compelling story of Anne Boleyn and her first love, Henry Percy. Perfect for fans of Anne Baker, Philippa Gregory and Elizabeth Chadwick. Alluring Anne Boleyn knows she is required to use her charm to her advantage – and secure the status of her family at the Tudor court. She easily captivates the noblemen, most notably Henry Percy, future Earl of Northumberland and, hopeful of her father’s approval, Anne agrees to a secret betrothal.
Controlling Cardinal Wolsey, though, will not countenance an alliance which could threaten his position. Exiled to the north, Henry is forced into a marriage of duty, whilst Anne’s fortunes reverse when she bewitches the King himself. Unwilling to be simply his mistress, Anne will settle for nothing but the throne. But great power brings even greater enemies, and Anne’s past actions – and long-kept secrets – might prove to be her undoing…
