Apart, they are bound to destroy themselves. Together, they are bound to destroy each other.
Henry Tudor’s like has been mapped out since the day he was born: student president, valedictorian, Harvard Law School, and a stunning political career just like his father’s. But ever since the death of Henry’s brother – perfect, high-achieving Arthur – his family has been twice as demanding. And now Henry’s trapped: forbidden from pursuing a life as an artist or dating any girl who’s not Tudor approved.
Then Anne Boleyn crashes into his life.
Anne is wild, brash and outspoken. She is everything Henry is not allowed to be – or to want. But soon Anne is all he can think about. His mother, his friends, and even his girlfriend warn him away, yet his desire for Anne consumes him. Henry is willing to do anything to be with her. But once he has her, their romance could destroy them both.
Inspired by the true story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, Anne & Henry reimagines the intensity, love, and betrayal between one of the most infamous couples of all time.
As soon as I read the synopsis for Anne & Henry I was smitten. How incredible does that sound! I have a bit of love for Elizabeth I, Anne and Henry’s daughter, so from a historical point of view this book is right up my street. The story line sounds great, a clever spin on the famous couple. I can’t wait to read this book to find out the fate of Anne and Henry!
I’m also slightly in love with the cover, it’s gorgeous!
I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
