The Tudor Wife by Emily Purdy Now Available in the UK

The British version of my novel The Boleyn Wife by Brandy Purdy is now available in the UK, in bookstores and online, as The Tudor Wife under my British pen name Emily Purdy.

From the back cover:

A lustful king. A thirst for power. The terrible price of revenge! When we meet the shy, plain Lady Jane Parker, she feels out of place in Henry VIII's court, which is filled with glamour and intrigue. Then she meets the handsome George Boleyn and becomes overjoyed when her father arranges a match! until she meets Anne. George Boleyn is completely devoted to his sister Anne; and as Anne's circle of admirers grows, so does Jane's resentment. Becoming Henry's queen makes Anne the most powerful woman in England; but it also makes her vulnerable, as the King is desperate for an heir. When he begins to tire of his mercurial wife, the stage is set for the ultimate betrayal! Encompassing the reigns of four of Henry's wives, from the doomed Anne to the reckless Katherine Howard, The Tudor Wife is an unforgettable story of ambition, lust, and jealousy.

Thanks for alerting us, Brandy! I notice the sales rank in England is great and getting better all the time. I guess Americans can write popular novels that sell in England! Congrats on your achievement.

The cover on this version is lovely, very rich. Hopefully, people will realize the book is out under two titles and two names. I understand why publishers do this, but it does make it confusing.
Best of luck with the English release. I hope you do well.

LOVED the book until the last few chapters when it seemed that the author had suddenly thought that she should spice it all up with grafic descriptions of the sexual acts that were apparently carried out between the ladies of the court. Such a shame to spoil a good book with such trash. How much better it would have been if it had been intimated but not expalined in full!!
