The Secrets of the Tudor Court Series is "rich and lushly detailed, teeming with passion and intrigue," said Romantic Times. Now talented Kate Emerson continues a saga as dramatic and seductive as the court itself.
Pretty, flirtatious, and ambitious. Nan Bassett hopes that an appointment at the court of King Henry VIII will bring her a grand marriage. But soon after she becomes a maid of honor to Queen Jane, the queen dies in childbirth. As the court plunges into mourning, Nan sets her sights on the greatest match in the land...for the king has noticed her. After all, it wouldn't be the first time King Henry has chosen to wed a maid of honor. And in newly Protestant England, where plots to restore the old religion abound, Nan may be the only one who can reassure a suspicious king of her family's loyalty.
But the favor of a king can be dangerous and chancy, not just for Nan, but for her family as well...and passionate Nan is guarding a secret, one that could put her future - and her life - in grave jeopardy should anyone discover the truth.
Based on the life of the real Anne Bassett and her family, and drawing extensively from letters and diaries of the time, Between Two Queens is an enthralling picture of the dangers and delights of England's most passionate era.

My name is Kate, I preferfiction and fantasy. Not so much the alien-fromanother-planet-sci-fi stuff but the witchy books. I like to escape reality every now and agian. faiction amd fantasy provide me that outlet.
As stated by the author, herself, she writes her own ending, and I liked it!
Didn't listen long enough to find out.
No ........ don't care for her accent at all.
"Enjoyable story, lost interest right at the end."
It is only the very end part of the book that disappointed, by the last few chapters I had lost interest. The rest of the book kept me intrigued and the story was based round sound historical facts. I would select another from this author.
