Alison Weir - Anna ​of Kleve: Queen of Secrets
'This ​six-book series looks likely to become a landmark in historical fiction' The Times Alison Weir, historian and author of the Sunday Times bestsellers Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen, Anne Boleyn: A King's Obsession and Jane Seymour: The Haunted Queen, draws a spellbinding portrait of Anna of Kleve, Henry VIII's fourth queen, as you've never seen her before. What secrets did Anna of Kleve hold? A German princess, with whose portrait a king has fallen in love. A young woman who has none of the accomplishments he admires in women. A young woman who lives with a guilty secret. Anna awaits her bridegroom. She prays that she will please him. She knows she is no beauty... It is the most disastrous of beginnings. And now it is her wedding night, and she is tense with fear. They think, these English, that she is ignorant and naïve. They do not know her, or that she is aware of what is going on behind her back. Will it be divorce - or the headsman's sword? ANNA OF KLEVE - the fourth of Henry's queens. Alison Weir reveals a charming, spirited woman loved by all who knew her - and even, ultimately, by the King who rejected her. But her story does not end there.

Liz Fremantle - Queen's ​Gambit - Vezércsel
Egy ​haldokló király. A királyné veszélyben… Elvált, lefejezték, meghalt, elvált, lefejezték, túlélte… VIII. Henrik udvara tele van cselszövéssel, versengéssel, romantikával – és senki sem értheti ezt jobban, mint a középpontjában élő asszonyok. Katherine Parrnak, aki harmincegy éves korára másodszor is megözvegyül, vissza kell térnie az udvarba, de az idősödő királyra és az őt körülvevő emberekre gyanakodva, ezt nem szívesen teszi meg. Emellett, amikor szenvedélyes viszonyba keveredik a rámenős és csábító Thomas Seymourral, azt hiszi, hogy végre szerelemből mehet majd férjhez. Ám jelenléte az udvarban felkeltette még valaki érdeklődését… Őszinteségétől és intelligenciájától elbűvölten Tudor Henriknek is megvan a maga terve Katherine-nel kapcsolatban, és senki sincs abban a helyzetben, hogy visszautasíthatná a király házassági ajánlatát. Így hát míg varázslatos szeretőjét eltávolítják a kontinensre, Katherine kénytelen elfogadni a betegeskedő, egoista uralkodó kezét, s ő lesz Henrik hatodik felesége. Az őt megelőző királynék sorsának tudatában Katherine-nek minden ösztönét és intelligenciáját segítségül kell hívnia, hogy elnavigáljon az udvar ármánykodásai közepette. Miközben a katolikusok újra hatalomra kerülnek, a reformátorokat eretnekségért égetik meg, a haldokló királyt körülvevő emberek pedig tülekednek a hatalomért az új rezsimben, a túlélése valószínűtlennek látszik – ám ő még ekkor sem mond le a szerelemről...

Terence Morgan - The ​Shadow Prince

When his enemies seek him out he must flee, and he embarks on a new life of derring-do, sailing the high seas with the era's greatest adventurers. But Richard cannot avoid his fate forever.

Robin Maxwell - Virgin
Queen ​Elizabeth I, daughter of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII and later England's most beloved monarch, was banished by her father at the age of two, but is readmitted to the Tudor fold at nine when Henry's sixth wife, Katherine Parr, softens his heart towards Elizabeth. After Henry's death, Katherine marries Thomas Seymour, a shallow man of reckless ambition. The amoral Seymour orchestrates his master plan to capture the crown, one that includes the seduction of the young and vulnerable princess.

Robin Maxwell - To ​the Tower Born
In ​1483, Edward and Richard of York—Edward, by law, already King of England—were placed, for their protection before Edward's coronation, in the Tower of London by their uncle Richard. Within months the boys disappeared without a trace, and for the next five hundred years the despised Richard III was suspected of their heartless murders. In To the Tower Born, Robin Maxwell ingeniously imagines what might have happened to the missing princes. The great and terrible events that shaped a kingdom are viewed through the eyes of quick-witted Nell Caxton, only daughter of the first English printer, and her dearest friend, "Bessie," sister to the lost boys and ultimate founder of the Tudor dynasty. It is a thrilling story brimming with mystery, color, and historical lore. With great bravery and heart, two friends navigate a dark and treacherous medieval landscape rendered more perilous by the era's scheming, ambitious, even murderous men and women who will stop at nothing to possess the throne.
