From Bertrice Small, the beloved "queen of romance," (Publishers Weekly) comes a sweeping new novel of a young girl's unexpected journey into womanhood, into mystery and passion, and into history...
Her name is Rosamund Bolton. She is heiress to the Friarsgate fortune. More than a splendid inheritance, it will chart the fate of the orphaned beauty, widowed at a precious young age. It will take her from the treacherous custody of her devious uncle to the magnificent court of Elizabeth of York, into the confidence of Katherine of Aragon, and past the intimate chamber doors of Henry VIII. It's an adventure that will test the limits of passion and betrayal; it will change the meaning of the word enemy, and turn even the most daring fantasy into true love.
With this first novel in an original and exciting new series, the adventures of Rosamund are just beginning...

Bertrice Small has written twenty-nine novels of historical romance, and two erotic novellas. In keeping with her profession, Bertrice Small lives in the oldest English-speaking town in the state of New York, founded in 1640.From Booklist:
Twice married before she was 13, Rosamund Bolton, mistress of Friarsgate Manor, vows that the next time she weds she will have a say in the matter. Upon the death of her second husband, she becomes a ward of King Henry VII. She is escorted to court by Sir Owein Meredith, who soon escorts her back home, having become her third husband. Even though the king has arranged the match, it meets with Rosamund's approval, but after several years of wedded bliss and three daughters, a tragic accident takes Owein from her. Called back to court, Rosamund must serve the new queen, Katherine of Aragon, while trying to fend off the amorous advances of Katherine's second husband, lusty King Henry VIII. New York Times best-selling author Small's latest sexy historical has all the ingredients her fans love: a young, courageous heroine who finds romance in the arms of several men, a colorfully detailed historical setting, and sexy love scenes that leave nothing to the reader's imagination. Small isn't for everyone, but the first in her new Friarsgate Inheritance series is an excellent example of a sensual historical romance.
