Publisher's Summary

Divorced. Murdered. Died. Divorced. Departed. Survived.

A modern take on the life and marriages of Henry VIII, if he were a 21st-century womanizing media mogul rather than the king of England.

Master of the universe Harry Rose is head of the Rose Corporation, number 18 on the Forbes rich list, and recently married to wife number six. But in 2018, his perfect world is about to come crashing to the ground. His business is in the spotlight - and not in a good way - and his love life is under scrutiny. Because behind a glittering curtain of lavish parties, gorgeous homes, and a media empire is a tale worthy of any tabloid.

And Harry has a lot to account for.

Critic Reviews

"You don’t have to be a Tudor aficionado to adore Wife After Wife, however, those in the know will be especially delighted with this modern-day retelling of the six wives of Henry VIII. For all others, Hayfield’s clever novel is a delicious read for anyone looking to sink into a big juicy story about love, lust, betrayal and other unfortunate consequences of the heart." (Renee Rosen, best-selling author of Park Avenue Summer)

"This page-turner will delight both Tudorphiles and readers who love a dishy tell-all about rich people behaving badly." (Booklist)

"This story will resonate with readers, even those less familiar with British royal history. For fans of updated Jane Austen books, such as Soniah Kamal’s Unmarriageable and Curtis Sittenfeld’s Eligible, and those who are ready to branch out." (Library Journal)

Totally fed my Tudor fascination

Years ago I read everything I could on Henry VIII and his wives, it just fascinated me. I loved the premise of this book, a modern retelling of the tale in a fictional world. I LOVED this. It was such fun, the details taken from the truth and woven into a fictional tale. Everything about it just pulled you in, the story, the Narration was A+. Download this book!!
