One of the most intriguing yet most overlooked figures of the Tudor age—Margaret, Queen of Scotland, daughter of Henry VII, and sister to Henry VIII—comes to vivid life in a stunning novel of love and ambition, from the acclaimed author of The Sumerton Women. From her earliest days, Margaret Tudor knows she will not have the luxury of choosing a husband. Her duty is to gain alliances for England. Barely out of girlhood, Margaret is married by proxy to James IV and travels to Edinburgh to become Queen of Scotland. Despite her doubts, Margaret falls under the spell of her adopted home. But while Jamie is an affectionate husband, he is not a faithful one. And nothing can guarantee Margaret’s safety when Jamie leads an army against her own brother, Henry VIII. In the wake of loss she falls prey to an ambitious earl and brings Scotland to the brink of anarchy. Beset by betrayal and secret alliances, Margaret has one aim—to preserve the crown of Scotland for her son, no matter what the cost… Coming in February, 2013 from Kensington Publishing!
