Anne Gracie - The ​King, The Queen, and The Mistress
A ​king torn between two women could lead to a kingdom torn. Troubled by religious unrest in his kingdom and changing alliances with other countries, weighing most on King Henry VIII of England's mind is his impending divorce to Queen Katherine of Aragon. The matter is of extreme urgency, as the king desires an heir and has just met the woman who holds his destiny -- Lady Anne Boleyn, eighteen and in the flower of youthful beauty. But was their meeting by chance, or part of a plan devised by her father for the furthering of his family? As the new romance blooms, it causes heartache for the queen and headaches for the king's personal chaplain, Cardinal Wolsey, who once worked on behalf of the kingdom to organize diplomatic talks, but now toils to obtain the Church's approval for the king's divorce. As loyalties are questioned and the Church's influence is threatened by the emboldened king, the fate of the kingdom lies in the balance. An irresistible story of love, lust, ambition, and political intrigue, this novelization of season one of The Tudors introduces us to a young, virile king of one of the most powerful nations in the world, and the women who will cause him to forever alter the course of history.

Anne Gracie - Tudorok
Miközben ​a király két asszony közt őrlődik, birodalma a szakadék szélére kerül... Az ifjú VIII. Henrik nagy uralkodó, de még nagyobb élvhajhász: a tivornyák és a könnyű flörtök egymást érik a nyüzsgő királyi udvarban. A csillogó felszín alatt azonban vérre menő harc folyik a hatalomért és a vagyonért. A nemes lordok egyike saját leánygyermekét, Boleyn Annát használja fel az előremenetele érdekében. Aragóniai Katalintól hiába remél fiú utódot Henrik, így végül nem az európai háborúknak, hanem egy varázsos női szempárnak esik áldozatul. Mi mindent dob sutba a tehetséges, okos uralkodó az igaz szerelemért - józanságot, hitet, vallást, vagy akár egy országot? Az intrikákkal átszőtt, erotikus és humoros regény a sikeres Tudorok filmsorozat első évadának könyvváltozata. Románcok, cselszövések, négyszemközt elsuttogott szavak, uralkodók és méregkeverők, talpnyalók és lázadók, álszent papok és hithű nemesek; ez a Tudorok világa.
