Love to the Death.

When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for more than three decades. But his bride is still in love with his dead enemy, and her mother and half of England remain loyal to her brother, the missing York heir.

Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

“A bloody irresistible read.” —People

“Bring on the blood, sex, and tears!...You name it, it’s all here.” —USA TODAY

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gregory returns with another sister act. The result: her best novel in years.” USA Today
“Gregory…always delivers the goods.” New York Post
“Gorgeous fun.” New York Daily News
“Gregory believably depicts this mostly forgotten queen, her moody husband, and the future Henry VIII, shown here as a charmingly temperamental child. Something about the Tudors brings out the best in Gregory’s portraiture.” Publishers Weekly
“This rich tapestry brings to vivid life the court of Henry and Elizabeth. Meticulously drawn characters with a seamless blending of historical fact and fiction combine in a page-turning epic of a story. Tudor-fiction fans can never get enough, and they will snap this one up.” Library Journal
“Replete with intrigue and heartrending drama.” Booklist
“As usual, Gregory delivers a spellbinding (and definitely York-biased) exposé.” Kirkus Reviews
