From “the queen of royal fiction” (USA TODAY) comes this New York Times bestseller featuring three very different women whose fates are each bound by a bloody curse: the legacy of the Boleyn family.
After the death of his third wife, Jane Seymour, King Henry VIII of England decides to take a new wife, but this time, not for love. The Boleyn Inheritance follows three women whose lives are forever changed because of the king’s decision, as they must balance precariously in an already shaky Tudor Court.
Anne of Cleves is to be married to Henry to form a political alliance, though the rocky relationship she has to the king does not bode well for her or for England.
Katherine Howard is the young, beautiful woman who captures Henry’s eye, even though he is set to marry Anne. Her spirit runs free and her passions run hot—though her affections may not be returned upon the King.
Jane Rochford was married to George Boleyn, and it was her testimony that sent her husband and infamous sister-in-law Anne to their deaths. Throughout the country, her name is known for malice, jealousy, and twisted lust.
The Boleyn Inheritance is a novel drawn tight as a lute string about three women whose positions brought them wealth, admirations, and power, as well as deceit, betrayal, and terror.

King Henry VIII, fat, ill, and suspicious of everyone, still desires their attention and love. Alternating diary entries of Jane Boleyn (sister-in-law to Anne Boleyn), Anne of Cleves, and Katherine Howard describe the king and life in court, including the many potential political pitfalls. Dagmara Dominczyk brings the conniving Jane Boleyn to life, showing first her determination to spy for the Duke of Norfolk, then her attempts to disentangle herself from deceit. Bianca Amato characterizes Anne of Cleves as a nave woman with a soft German accent who bows to everyones demands. Ruthie Henshall portrays Katherine Howard, the empty-headed teenager who counts her good luck AND her dresses as she becomes Henrys lover, then his wife. As Gregory depicts the three women, the narrators entice listeners to follow each one to the end of her tangled story.
